Design Codes evolution

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Dear Friends:

I am conducting a research about the evolution on Design Codes, so any
information or comments on the next topics are welcomed:

1.- When the first ASD standards of design  where used in ACI, AISC and AISI?

2.- When Ultimate Strength Method was in use in ACI-318?

3.- When Plastic Design was introduced in AISC Specifications?

4.- When LRFD was in use in AISC, AISI and ACI?

5.- In your opinion the future trend in Design Codes is toward LRFD only
and also will ASD specifications be disregarded?

6.- Any websites to look on Codes history?

Thank you very much  for your cooperation and time.
