Seismic Design Manual

The 2nd Edition Seismic Design Manual includes sections on general seismic design considerations, analysis considerations, and systems not specifically detailed for seismic resistance. Different seismic force resisting systems are covered in the balance of the sections, along with diaphragms, chord and collectors as well as an introduction to engineered damping systems.

The Seismic Design Manual includes hundreds of pages of comprehensive design examples, including connections, updated for the 2010 AISC Seismic Provisions. Examples are shown with LRFD and ASD design methodologies side-by-side.

Also included are two AISC seismic-related standards: the 2010 AISC Seismic Provisions for Structural Steel Buildings (ANSI/AISC 341-10) and the 2010 AISC Prequalified Connections for Special and Intermediate Steel Moment Frames for Seismic Applications with Supplement No. 1 (ANSI/AISC 358-10 and ANSI/AISC 358s1-11).
