I don't remember your previous question.  If you would include more detail
about what you are working on, and send it to the SEAINT list again, I and
others will be able to determine whether or not we may have information that
may be useful to you.  Your previous  question had so little detail about
the nature of the project, that it is likely that few engineers cared to
take the time to try to figure out what it was about or whether or not they
might be able to provide helpful information.

For example, briefly tell us:

What is a reach project?

Describe briefly the nature of the project (materials, seismic zone, number
of stories, purpose, is it an existing, proposed, or hypothetical

What are the structural problems that you need help with?

How are you approaching the project (what analysis methods, reference
resources, design codes)?

What alternatives have you considered?

My niche in the structural engineering field is design for repair and
strengthening of old buildings -- that's a narrow, unusual specialization.
Most on the SEAINT list are familiar with design and analysis of new
structures.   I can not determine from your messages whether or not
information from sources from my niche would be helpful to you.

Most subscribers to the list are busy professionals who can not take the
time to provide consultation to a stranger, but who are willing to quickly
share some of the specialized information with which they are especially
familiar.  You will find that many on the list are willing to share valuable
expertise with you if you will define the problem clearly so that the
specialists in that problem can recognize it as a problem with which they
are familiar, and make a quick reply.

Don't expect to get copies of documents, or references to a library of
information from the list.  However, you probably will receive some
valuable, otherwise-hard-to-find direction that will expedite the effort
that you need to invest in order to find a solution to your problem on your
