Yes. Yes.


Not sure of the exact reasons for the change, but I think the presence or absence of checks and splits was involved in the change.

Being from CA, we are current code challenged.


In the 2001 NDS, the table 4 shear values are doubled from the 1997 version.  Is this correct? Have the allowable shear values been increased by a factor of 2?
