DSA Form 1-AMM Template
DSA references AISC 358 for prequalified connections that can be used for steel special moment frames (SMF). Since AISC 358-22 has not yet been adopted by the CBC, the use of DuraFuse Frames is permitted through an Alternative Means and Methods request. A template for Form 1-AMM is available on our website.
