Ouch, my eyes hurt.  Robert, haven't you heard that it's not etiquette to
type e-mail in all caps?  (It's the visual equivalent of shouting.)

	 I HAVE SEEN (ON SEVERAL DRAWINGS) THE USE OF BENT REINFORCING STEEL

	 (USUALLY BENT AT 135 DEGREES) WHICH IS PLACED IN THE TOP OF A
CONCRETE 
	 PIER (JUST BELOW THE COLUMN BASE PLATE AND AROUND THE BACKSIDE OF
THE 
	 ANCHOR BOLTS) AND TIES THE PIER TOP INTO THE CONCRETE SLAB ON
GRADE.  THIS 
	 IS A TYPICAL DETAIL FOR PRE-ENGINEERED METAL BUILDING WHERE THE
LATERAL 
	 THRUST LOAD IS TRANSMITTED INTO THE SLAB-ON-GRADE SUCH THAT IT
HELPS 
	 RESIST ANY LATERAL FORCES.  IF ANYONE KNOWS OF A GOOD
DESIGN/ANALYSIS 
	 REFERENCE FOR THIS CONNECTION PLEASE LET ME KNOW.  (I'M ASSUMING
ITS JUST 
	 A MATTER OF DEVELOPING SUFFICIENT TENSILE STRENGTH IN THE REBAR TO 
	 TRANSMIT THE THRUST LOAD).
