All the comments which have come before this one appear to be relevant and useful, and I will add just one more: A structure's ability to perform depends completely upon its as-built condition in the field. Analysis, design and CD's matter not if the structure is built differently from what the designer intended. Field experience allows a designer to see how his/her ideas are being implemented, or not implemented, in the field. Hopefully, this allows said designer to adjust the detailing requirements for future projects such that the intent of the design is fulfilled. "Many a slip twixt the cup and the lip" would be the operative phrase here, and IMO, field experience helps those of our profession to minimize the effects of one of the major slip areas. T.
