Re: Any Young Engineers Out There?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Bob,

I didn't take (architectural) steel classes until the late 90s, and even back then LRFD is the only thing they taught at Cal Poly.  Of course, I was quickly broken of that nasty habit on my first job, where the standard was to mash all the loads together and take a healthy safety factor on the materials. Now I'm switching back to LRFD, but I still do ASD in my head - I just have to remember not to do the ASD in my head and pick the column loads out of the LRFD tables!
