Fwd: Codes

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I would disagree with Roger Turk's comments that codes based design represent
the crummiest minimum.  A significant time and effort is spent by practicing
engineers and experts in their respective fields to develop guidelines on
which codes are based.  In order to make codes enforceable, sometimes
simplifications and compromises are made.  I also agree that engineers with
their knowledge and creativity improve upon their design by going a step
the code.
