I´m a student from mendoza, argentina and i agree with you, marlou: detailing is a very important thing and great structural engineers share this opinion. That´s why one of the last chapters of Park & Paulay´s "Reinforced concrete structures" (kind of a bible of seismic design of rc structures) is named "the art of detailing". Also, one of my teachers, a great engineer here in mendoza, eng. Agustin Reboredo, expend a great deal of time on remarking the importance of a good detail work. Not to mention Bertero´s advise on the same subject. -----Mensaje original----- De: MRodrig273(--nospam--at)aol.com <MRodrig273(--nospam--at)aol.com> Para: SEAINT(--nospam--at)SEAINT.ORG <SEAINT(--nospam--at)SEAINT.ORG> Fecha: viernes 4 de septiembre de 1998 4:47 Asunto: higher loads or better details. >My boss, just brought up an interesting idea, > >Here in Hawaii, we have just been exposed to the 1997 UBC.
