WE USED LRFD FOR A WHILE HERE AND EVEN DEVELOPED A FEW SPREAD SHEETS IN
AN ATTEMPT TO EXPEDITE ITS USE. HOWEVER WE FOUND THAT EVEN THOUGH ITS
USE MIGHT YIELD ASMALLER AND THUS MORE ECONOMICAL MEMBER WE WOULD 90%
OGF THE TIME BE FORCED TO BUMP THE SIZE BACK UP IN ORDER TO MEET
DEFLECTION AND OTHER SERVICEABILITY CRITERIA. DOING THIS REPEATEDLY WAS
NOT CONDUCIVE TO PUTTING BEANS ON THE TABLE, SO WE'VE GONE BACK TO WSD.
