This CD-ROM contains a library of technical reports on the seismic design criteria, evaluation, repair, and specifications of steel moment-frame buildings. The CD-ROM includes four resource documents (FEMA 350 through FEMA 353) intended primarily for organizations engaged in the development of building codes and standards for regulation of the design, construction, repair, and upgrade of steel moment-frame structures that may be subject to the effects of earthquakes. The CD-ROM contains six reports (FEMA 355 A-F) that provide detailed explanations of the basis for the design criteria and evaluation recommendations for base metals, welding, systems performance, connection performance, and past and predicted performance included in the resource documents. The CD-ROM also includes one guideline (FEMA 354) for building owners, local community officials, and other non-technical audiences on the social, economic, and political issues related to the earthquake performance of these structures.
