Considering the actual design work, the Seismic Performance Verification and Structural
Performance Verification part of 2002 version are combined into this new "Design" part.
In addition, Verifications of Durability at design stage and Thermal Crack at construction
stage in "Materials and Construction" part of previous version have been moved into this
new "Design" part. It is also stipulated that the construction conditions should be clearly
stated in design documents for verification purpose. In addition, Chapter 3 (Structural Planning)
on selection of structure type, materials, etc., has been added in this revision. "Design"
part is composed of four parts: General, Performance Verification, Standard and References.
Manual part introduces standard methods to achieve the required performance stipulated in General
part in a given condition. References part provides particular examples for clarifying contents
of General part. With the above contents, this part is named "Design".
