Re: 1991 NDS Values for Lumber

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I contacted ICBO about the changes in design values from one NDS code to another and I was told that until a newer code is adopted by the local jurisdiction, using the values published in the previous code (UBC, etc.) is acceptable.  Of course we all have to use our engineering judgement.
