Prequalified Moment Connection Standard Available for Public Review
Posted by Alison Trost on March 22, 2010 at 8:20 AM.

The 2010 AISC standard Prequalified Connections for Special and Intermediate Steel Moment Frames for Seismic Applications (AISC 358-10) is now available for public review. A consolidation of the existing Prequalified Connections standard (ANSI/AISC 358-05) and its supplement (ANSI/AISC 358-05s1-09), the 2010 standard includes all five prequalified moment connections, as well as minor revisions for consistency with the upcoming 2010 AISC Seismic Provisions for Structural Steel Buildings (AISC 341-10).

 

The draft standard is available for review by downloading the document at www.aisc.org/AISC358pr. A paper copy of the standard can also be requested for a fee of $15 by contacting Janet Cummins at 312.670.5411 or by e-mailing cummins@aisc.org.

 

The existing 2005 AISC 358 standard and supplement can be downloaded at www.aisc.org/AISC358 and www.aisc.org/AISC358s1.
