strength" which sowns a factor "phi" at the two sides of the
formula. In the 2001 My recollection in algebra says that a value goes to the other side of
the formula with the oppossite sign. If I follow the rule, "phi"
multiplying goes dividing, means phi/phi=1. Why in such Chapter 19, DIVII - 1914.5.1 even it gives a value of 0.70
to phi?. I will appreciate your comments, specially because I am an architect.” In response: I think the last statement just about sums
up the root of the problem right there. *laugh* Sorry, I couldn’t
resist. *laugh* Just havin’ some fun. I’m in a
goofy kinda mood today. But come on… how many Engineers out
there read that statement and thought the exact same thing. I know you’re
out there. You know who you are!!! Comedy by: Dave Maynard, PE P.S. The wind’s blowing like crazy
today. I’m starting to get cabin fever. |
