A new AISC standard, Specification for Safety-Related Steel Structures for Nuclear Facilities (ANSI/AISC N690-06), is now available for free downloading on the AISC web site. This specification is written as a supplement to the 2005 AISC Specification for Structural Steel Buildings (ANSI/AISC 360-05) and includes updated design provisions for the design of safety-related steel structures and steel elements in nuclear facilities. The document incorporates both allowable stress design (ASD) and load and resistance factor design methods (LRFD), and supersedes ANSI/AISC N690L-03 and ANSI/AISC N690-94 (R2004), including all supplements to and previous versions of this specification. ANSI/AISC N690-06 has been approved by the AISC Committee on Specifications and is ANSI-accredited. The new Specification and Commentary can be downloaded at no charge by visiting
