RE: NFPA code

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Absolutely agree! Not only does this divide the work of code development,
but it assures that the appropriate "authorities"--those who have a vested
or vocational interest in improving the design process in a given area of
effort--are employed in the effort.

It just makes a great deal of sense.

The building code should develop all of the rules within their purview and
should reference to other codes as appropriate.  A similar contention
applies for concrete design.  The building code should reference the ACI
318.  Steel should be referenced to AISC, etc.
