New Digital Technical Resources on the AISC Website

AISC has posted several new digital resources that will benefit everyone using our standards and technical publications. Here's a quick look at these new free digital resources:

Linked Specification and Seismic Provisions
The digital version of the 2016 Specification (ANSI/AISC 360-16) and 2016 Seismic Provisions (ANSI/AISC 341-16) are now enhanced with linked content and preset bookmarks. In these documents you will find a direct link at every section reference, saving you from having to scroll through the document or having to set up your own custom bookmarks. Navigating through these documents has never been so quick and easy!

New 15th Edition Manual Companion
We've released a new version of the "Design Examples" resource and have given it a new name: "v15.1 Companion to the AISC Steel Construction Manual". In addition to the new name, we've split the document into two separate volumes: Vol. 1 Design Examples and Vol. 2 Design Tables. We want to highlight that this resource includes many useful design tables that supplement the AISC Manual.

If you're not familiar with this resource, we provide more than 1,600 pages of examples and tables that illustrate using the provisions of the 2016 Specification and the 15th Edition Manual for designing members, connections, and structural systems.

Seismic Design Manual Interactive Reference List
Our website now has a complete listing of all the references found in the 3rd Edition Seismic Design Manual, including the 2016 Seismic Provisions. What makes this list interactive is that a link is provided to where each reference can be obtained. Many of the references are available from the AISC website, while others are linked to the outside organization where the publication can be accessed or purchased. This resource will make it much easier to track down the background for the Seismic Design Manual and
Seismic Provisions.
