  • Abstract:

    A forthcoming revision of SANS 10160-4 (Seismic actions and general requirements for buildings) addresses the omission of structural steel design provisions from the standard, as well as contradictions between SANS 10160 and SANS 10162, the steel design standard. This note discusses the background to the proposed provisions.
