In recent discussions with other engineers, it appears as though there = is a major discontinuity between those engineers practicing in area's = other than seismic zone 3 and 4. When I questioned why this exists, it = was explained to me that engineers in other parts of the country think = that California (or any area in zones 3 & 4) are only concerned with = seismic safety. It is also my understanding that there is very little community = discussion between organizations or committees that are in the process = of combining and working through codes. Now, I don't know how much validity there is to this belief, but feel = that it is very important for engineers in all regions of the country to = pool their knowledge for the uniform code.=20 Wind design is a consideration in all zone and tends to govern on light = weight structures - even in Calfornia.=20 I would hope that with over 2,000 engineers subscribed to this list that = the discussion of Wind loads is worked to death so that we can reach an = agreement as to the methods and proceedures are established before the = publication of a unified code. I would like some opinions as to how this List can be used to help the = development of the work that all structural engineering professional = affiliations are working with. This includes any work being done by SEA = in each state chapter as well as CASE, NSPE, ASCE, as well as work done = by Universities and private institutions. Please don't think that your comments are taken lightly, the list is the = potential platform for the a advancement of our profession. It needs the = proper direction and assistance in maintaining that direction for the = betterment of structural engineering around the world.
