My office still only uses ASD - mainly because of lack of time and interest in learning LRFD; but I also prefer ASD because I like to know the level of real stress relative to yield strength and I am often just as concerned with serviceability/ deflection control (for industrial structures) as I am about strength. Although I do use load factor design for new concrete structures, I often revert to working stress analysis for existing structures, to have a better feel for real stress relative to yield capacity. I only learned ultimate strength design for concrete in college, but I learned working stress design "on the job". I think college graduates are better off still having knowledge of ASD methods. ...
