I am like Diogenese looking for that "intelligent, rational person with real experience". I have not found him yet. Least of all in the mirror.

Harold-
Are you trying to tell us that there is actually something relating to DoD that was drawn up by an intelligent, rational person with real experience? That has to be a first!

Maureen,
Almost all of my work is for DoD entities. This particular provision was authored by an incredibly insightful, brilliant engineer. I see him every morning in the mirror. (Humor to the point of knee slapping is intended;>)

This provision evolved from the work in which we had a performance requirement that we had to be operational immediately after a 2,500 year seismic event. There is more DoD seismic guidance in the offing coming in the form of the UFC 3-310-04. There is a lot more of what is involved for criticality for national defense facilities.

Regards,
Harold Sprague
