Re: Any Young Engineers Out There?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I learned from the red book (6th edition) in school (I'm definitely not in the "Any Young Engineer Out There" category).  I've used both but visualize performance better (except for joints) using ASD level results. Design isn't about getting things down to a knat's rear end precision unless you are repeating the assembly over and over again (and even then it's quite ridiculous because we don't really know the seismic inputs that closely anyway).

I got the 2nd edition LRFD ("Silver Book") shortly after I graduated.  It
was all the 1st edition ("Blue Book") for me in school.
