• Summary:- Research on the behavior of structural components and systems has always played animportant role on the development of the design standards that regulate and unify thework of structural engineers. After a review of the history of design code experience inNorth America, this paper discusses the tasks ahead for promulgating future standards forlooming future design tasks. It is concluded that a new paradigm for these regulationsmust replace the current system with its many prescriptive rules. A case is made forPerformance-Based Design as the future format to be implemented.
