Summary: Appendix to the Paper: "Seismic Behavior and Design of Steel Shear Walls", by A. Astaneh-Asl, Presented and distributed at
SEAONC Seminar-2001, November 2001, San Francisco.
Appendix I: Proposed Provisions to Establish Earthquake Loads
for Steel Plate Shear Wall Systems
The following proposed provisions are for the load side of design equation and intended
for possible inclusion in design codes such as the IBC and SEAOC Blue Book.
