RE: Hold-down eccentricity

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Chuck,
Our flights into SF on Tuesday were canceled due to bad weather. Jerry
Buckman from Simpson in Brea (I believe) was also on his way and had his
flight canceled. I tried to get on flights into the evening and was unable
to make the connection without landing in San Jose. I decided to wait until
the next one. However, read some of my comments regarding the evaluation
software that Keymark and Simpson was kind enough to send me.  I posted it
tonight.
I would say that the competition is neck and neck. If you must design a
structure with either skewed walls and/or non-plywood or Simpson Strongwall
hybrid walls, you are going to be doing it by hand for a while (although you
can use my spreadsheet on the seaoc website).

There is still going to be an evolution on these software and a lot of it
has to do with waiting for SEAOC Seismology to address the unresolved issues
and conflicts.

Regards,
Dennis

Dennis-
We missed you at the Keylat training session yesterday.  I'd like to hear
your
reactions regarding Keylat. I have mixed feelings.
