Practical guide for structural engineers related to the seismic resistance design in steel construction. Used as a rule-book and a bibliographic reference.
- It includes basic concepts and design criteria for the most usual resistant systems.
- Its reference: Seismic Provisions for Structural Steel Buildings (AISC, 2005).
- Includes a brief description of other systems that represent a structural engineering break-troughs, applied in the USA and Japan.
