RE: ASCE 7-05 Errors

Not as bad as AISC's goof on the Seismic Design Manual. It was too extensive to treat with errata.

Just a tip that the latest errata for ASCE  7-05 is available from    All twenty four pages!  In addition, S.K. Ghosh published some ASCE 7 Seismic Provisions Errata in the April issue of Structural Engineer.  I don't know if Ghosh's errata was picked up by SEInstitute or not.


These errata are so extensive that I think you can ignore buying ASCE 7-05 and just download the errata for free.


I think I'm just going to go ahead and do really sloppy engineering on my next project - I can always issue errata, right?
