ABSTRACT

In this paper, the major changes of the 2005 Seismic Provisions for Structural Steel Buildings Part I will be summarized and discussed. The major topics include: Introduction of “Demand Critical Welds” and “Protected Zones”; Expansion of Scope; Integration of ASD into LRFD provisions; Introduction of New Systems and Appendices; General Revisions that applied to all Seismic Load Resisting Systems; and Specific Revisions for the Existing Systems.
