(apparently a lurking plan checker). Mr. Iconda asked me why I was making such a statement. My reply was that I did not make the statement. I only quoted and questioned what FSRahbar(--nospam--at)aol.com stated, and whether it was true. After some discussion about the subject of rigid vs. flexible diaphragms, Mr. Iconda denied such policy adoption by the City of L.A. Mr. Wong, in the future, please forward the complete and uncut posts as to who said what. Oshin Tosounian, S.E. >> Well, it's nice to see a building official respond to the thread so quickly:>). I think, when you consider the layers of personel within a building department you are bound to get some conflicting statements. Even more troubling is the fact that one checker may approve flexible diaprhagm design and issue a permit. He is under no liability, still the EOR is responsible if at some point a suit occurs where an expert witness can show that consideration for torsion would have yielded more conservative results. When the chips are down, it's our butt that's on the line no matter what the building department allows. Dennis
