I'm using ASD. I've not yet found a compelling reason to go to LRFD. I used a LRFD approach when working on ships in the early 60's. Either way can be made to work, and you can make blunders in either. I recognize the politics and the implications for international design, but that doesn't change the fact that ASD works, and is a rational approach for design. "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." Maybe AISC should change its name. I'd vote for Bureaucratic Union of Steel Theorists, or something similar. "BUST" has a nice ring to it, don't you think? :-) Fountain E. Conner, P.E.
