Re: Who's using ASD or LRFD?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
ASD is a perfectly adequate design method for many applications (simple
gravity members, connections to wood or masonry, etc.) and will continue to
be even if it is officially "eliminated".  However, there are applications
for which everyone will eventually have to make the switch.  For example, if
you have designed a special moment frame recently, you will have noticed
that the dichotomy between ASD and LRFD continues to grow as more SAC
research is incorporated into the code.

I use ASD and most likely continue to do so until it is eliminated.
