To: seaoc I would like to know if anyone is familiar with the Eurocodes from E.U. or working with " state limit ", not "allowable stresses ". ******************************* The Eurocode you are probably referring to is EUROCODE 3: DESIGN OF STEEL STRUCTURES Part 1.1 General Rules and Rules for Buildings (DD ENV 1993-1-1). Also you are probably referring to "LIMIT STATE" design. Limit state design for structural steel is similar to our LRFD design (Ultimate Strength) as opposed to ASD design (Working Stress). The Europeans I have worked with think it is quite silly that we have designed concrete in the U.S. for 20 year using Ultimate Strength Design but when it comes to steel we still use Working Stress (previously discussed many times on this list server!!). If you need foreign codes (DIN, British, Japanese, etc) a good source is IHS (Information Handling Services) in Englewood, Colorado. If you need a complete set they can supply CD-ROMs or if you just need one or two they can fax them to you. They can be reached at 1-800-447-3352, or 1-303-790-0600, or Internet:custsvc(--nospam--at)ihs.com. Thomas Hunt TOM.HUNT(--nospam--at)fluordaniel.com ...
