Steel Seismic Design Criteria Workshop
|Principal Investigator(s) and
Michel Bruneau, University at Buffalo
This task will support a workshop to be held in
June of 2000 in Las Vegas, NV to provide input to the NCHRP 12-49 team on
the seismic provisions they have developed regarding steel design.
These provisions will eventually be recommended to AASHTO for
adoption into their bridge specifications.
The workshop will convene a group of experts in steel and seismic
engineering that will review and discuss the proposed steel provisions.
During the workshop they will be asked to answer three questions:
these questions, a two-day workshop will be held during which the subject
provisions will be presented by key members of the 12-49 team and the
participants will discuss the provisions.
