Perhaps a supplement to the code could be produced which would have the basic specifications for these materials bound together, for those who do not wish to purchase them separately. But I don't like the current method of rewriting and reorganizing existing national codes for incorporation into UBC, etc. I should be able to get familiar with one national code for a material and only have to note any exceptions/additions in the building code. SEAOC list server subscribers: If you are interested in this subject, you may want to read the article in the Engineering News Record magazine (ENR - 2/5/96), entitled "Californians Shaky About Proposed National Code", by David Rosenbaum of the ENR Denver office. If I had a scanner, I'd attach a copy. Dave Schnitger, PE (213) 580-1085 FAX (213) 580-1232 E-mail: dschnitg(--nospam--at)bas.ci.la.ca.us ...
