Steel seismic design to AISC 341
Additional seismic provisions are required to be applied to members that are part of the seismic force resisting system (SFRS) of a structure. These provisions are applied in addition to any standard requirements for structural steel buildings as per AISC 360. The seismic provisions are contained in AISC 341. Tekla Structural Designer covers non-seismic steel design to AISC 360-05, AISC 360-10 and AISC 360-016. (Ref. 2). The purpose of this guide is to describe the matching seismic design requirements contained in AISC 341-05, AISC 341-10 and AISC 341-16 (Ref. 5).
