ASD vs LRFD

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
My limited exposure to LRFD (mainly AISC seminars) indicates deflection 
checks now become much more important and necessary, which adds time to the 
design effort. Then, if the design is too limber, which is more likely under 
LRFD than ASD, a redesign becomes necessary. I don't see that LRFD saves 
time.
