Thanking Mark Gilligan and Bill Cain,
Your answers to my queries
concerning the UBC seismic design requirements were very useful... and I can
see that I have a lot more work to do.
I am working on a project
for Turkey which requires some seismic design.
Unless you get to do design work in earthquake areas you wont notice the developments taking
place in this field.
was in Turkey a couple weeks ago on vacation. I noticed that the rebar
the contractors were using in several four and five storey buildings was
smooth bars. The bars appeared to be two sizes, equivalent to #3 and
#5 bars. The bars were delivered to the job lengths of about 40 feet
for field cutting and bending. The thing I foujnd most surprising was
that they were using smooth bars. From your questions, it doesn't
sound like you are involved with a concrete building; but, do you (or anyone
else) know about concrete construction practices in Turkey? I
attempted to find someone at one construction site who could speak English
but had no luck.
