As a result, I'd very much like to know whether you currently use Mathematica, and if not, what kind of software, if any, you use for calculation, analysis, modeling or visualization. I would also be very grateful for any suggestions you might have about Mathematica and its role in the engineering community. Thank you very much for your help. -- Michael Jones (mmjones(--nospam--at)wolfram.com) P.S. If you haven't seen the latest information on Mathematica, you might want to check out http://www.wolfram.com/engineering/frkc. ... ` From: pepper(--nospam--at)netrunner.net (John Pepper) To: seaoc(--nospam--at)power.net Date: Tue, 18 Jun 1996 16:45:49 -0400 (EDT) Subject: [SEAOC] Re: Gyp. board shear walls in LA As a young engineer, who didn't know any better, I one time attempted to use gypsum board in my calcualtions for the wind resisting system of a 6 stroy condominum. I very carfully subtracted about 15 psi for the boards contribution to the overall lateral resistance of the structure. My then boss, and later partner told me someting have never forgotten: "Never confuse stiffness with strenth." He explained the the gypsum walls would fail long before the reinforced masonry infilled walls shear walls and the somewhat (but not very) moment resistant flat plate/column system and therefore would not be avliable at the ultimate level for strength. He further explainted that the frame would not be worth much ei ...
