Divided into 11 chapters, this book provides considerable insight into the design of steel structures for ductile behaviour. the experience of real structures in recent significant seismic events at Nothridge and Kobe requires the structural engineer, detailer, and steel fabricator to be better informed. This book provides that design guidance and the understanding behind many of the recent seismic provisions of North American requirements. Chapter 9 deals with the Limit States philosophy in seismic design provisions while Chapter 7 provides guidance for the design of ductile braced frames and Chapter 8 for the design of ductile moment resisting frames.
