RE: Any Young Engineers Out There?

BUT...

Expect to see wording in the codes allowing use of the "older" ASD
method, much as ACI 318 carried "working stress" design of concrete in
an appendix for a very long time.

Remember that codes are consensus documents. For "consensus" read
"political."

Ya, but they will be taking it off that shelf in the not so distant
future.  This difference this time is that future model building codes
(i.e. starting with 2006 IBC, I believe) will not longer reference the
1989 AISC ASD spec as "permitted"/"legal" design.
