February 2005  Modern SteelConstruction
he AISC Steel Solutions Centeranswers thousands of technicalquestions every year concern-ing structural steel design andconstruction. For the most part,the questions are based on AISC
provisions or design recommenda-tions found in the AISC
. But then,there are a variety of questions withanswers that can’t be found in those twoimportant publications.Fortunately, AISC’s
Design Guide
pub-lications offer an abundance of designinformation on topics too broad for the
. Common designquestions, such as how to account forshear in column anchorages, or when touse slip-critical bolted joints, areaddressed in AISC design guides.AISC design guides provide compre-hensive guidance on specialized technicaltopics relevant to structural steel design,and they are authored by recognized indus-try experts. They can be ordered throughthe AISC web site at
, or by calling 800.644.2400. All AISCmembers have free access to AISC’s
Pubs web site,
,where they can instantly download elec-tronic copies of AISC design guides anytime, anywhere. Abrief summary of eachdesign guide follows.
Design Guide 1:
Column Base Plates
LRFD Manual of Steel Con-struction
addresses the most commoncase for column anchorage design—axialcompression. What to do if you also needto design for uplift, overturning moment,or shear? That’s where
Design Guide 1
comes to the rescue. The guide discussesproper methods for column base shearresistance, suggestions for sizing platewashers, and excellent recommendationsfrom the experts.Asecond edition of
Design Guide 1
isscheduled to be published later in 2005. Itwill address the new OSHAerectionrequirements that distinguish betweenposts and columns, as well as discuss baseplate details pertaining to analysisassumptions of pin and fixed columnanchorage, anchor rod pretension, contractdocuments, double-nutted anchorage con-figurations without grout and their design,regular and shear holes, fatigue, high-seis-mic design, applicable limit states, and base plate design examples.
Design Guide 2:
Steel and Composite Beams with WebOpenings

Design Guide 3
. Thisguide contains several tables with recom-mended maximum serviceability valuesfor roofing, skylight supports, cladding,ceilings, partitions, and equipment. Theguide also presents the latest revision toexisting vibration information due tohuman activity and machines as it relatesto modal damping (a good supplementto
Design Guide 11: Floor Vibrations Due to Human Activity
). The guide containsinformation on cambering beams andhow deflection issues relate to the con-struction of concrete slabs. Roof pondingcladding-structure interaction and mem- brane and metal roofs are also addressed.
Design Guide 4:
Extended End-Plate MomentConnections, 2nd Edition
This second edition now addressesseismic and wind applications. Itincludes design procedures and exam-ples for the four-bolt extended stiffenedand unstiffened, as well as the eight-boltextended stiffened, end-plate momentconnections. Users will find that theguide contains a clarified designapproach to seismic end-plate connectiondesign compared to the recommenda-tions found in FEMA350. The basis foreach design recommendation is outlinedin detail and presented as a step-by-stepprocedure. Connection limit states arediscussed in the guide to help designersunderstand the principles behind the behavior of extended end-plate momentconnections.
Design Guide 5:

It also discusses floor load capacityenhancement, shored vs. unshored con-struction, and underfloor duct systems.
Design Guide 6:
Load and Resistance Factor Design ofW-Shapes Encased in Concrete
Design Guide 6
contains more than 300pages of LRFD composite beam-columndesign strength values. In addition, athorough discussion of the use anddesign of composite columns is pre-sented, covering practical design consid-erations, fire resistance, longitudinal rein-forcing bar arrangement, ties,longitudinal reinforcing bar splices, con-nection of steel beams to encased wide-flange columns, shear connectors, baseplates, erection, and temporary wind bracing during composite frame con-struction.
Design Guide 7:
Industrial Buildings, Roofs to ColumnAnchorage
Design Guide 7
addresses all facets ofindustrial building design and includes acomprehensive section on crane runwaydesign. Part I covers owner-establisheddesign criteria, roof systems, roof trusses,wall systems, framing schemes, bracingsystems, column anchorage, and service-ability criteria. Part II concentrates on thecomplete design of industrial buildingswith cranes and addresses fatigue, roof,wall, framing and bracing systems, cranerunway girder design, crane runway fab-rication/erection tolerances, and columndesign. Stepped column design is alsodiscussed. Asecond edition of
