Re: Design rules / codes for the USA

To the List:

I think it would be helpful to Rico and to us as a group to have a list of
analysis and design standards that we use and the related web-sites or phone
numbers for
ordering.  Perhaps it should be on the SEAINT web site.  I think that it
could become a large list with dozens of organizations and hundreds of
reference documents.

Here's a beginning, based on my office practice.  Perhaps others could add
to the list (including favorite reference documents), or make corrections,
and send it back to the list.

>From Rico Harzer

I'm a German civil engineer, spezialized in structural design and engineer
mechanicals. I'ld like to get some informations about the rules and safety
codes for structural design in the USA. Maybe some of the engineers which
join this web-site are able to send me some informations.
