AISC 341-10

AISC 341-10

AISC 341-10

AISC has posted the public review copy of the 341-10 on their website.

What are your thoughs on the new layout?  How about some of the new provisions?

Here are my brief thoughts:
-I think that the new highly ductile/ moderately ductile definitions will be pretty useful.

-I think that SCBF's are almost unuseable now.  the b/t ratios are so restrictive, especially for square tubes, and the new analysis requirement seems really tedious.

-What does the minimum rotation requirement for SCBF beam to column connections equate to in real life?  Can a single shear plate take .025 radians?

Thanks for your thoughts
