RE: New LFRD/ASD Steel Code (Was: Any Young Engineers Out There?)

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I'm curious - how do various engineering firms cover the cost of updating MathCad and Excel spreadsheets for new code equations?  Do you have an overhead account for this work or do you just do the updates as projects require usage?  It takes some time to do such updates, but doing such work seems to strain budgets and time commitments.

Isn’t the 2006 IBC going to reference the 13th edition of the steel manual only, thereby forcing out 9th edition.  I may be wrong, but that is our understanding, so our office is updating all our steel MathCAD sheets to the 13th edition.
