Looking for the 1992 AISC Seismic Provisions

Looking for the 1992 AISC Seismic Provisions

I am working on a project where I must evaluate the effects of complying with the current codes relative to an older code (ASCE 7-95). One item of comparison relates to SCBF requirements. ASCE 7-95 refers to the 1992 AISC Seismic Provisions. I cannot find a version of the '92 provisions online (AISC's site has the '97 version and later). Can anyone reading this forum offer information to track it down?

Thank you

I think that prior to the AISC 341, the primary seismic reference was FEMA 350, 351. These were post Northridge earthquake (1994).

Thanks for the quick reply. Here's how the reference appears in the AISC-LRFD 2nd Ed.

The Dec 2008 edition of Modern Steel Construction indicates the provisions were first published in 1992.

RE: Looking for the 1992 AISC Seismic Provisions

There is no reference of a 1992 Seismic Provision on the AISC website. This is slightly before my time, so I cannot recall.

Thank You, I appreciate the assistance.
