RE: View proposed ACI 318 revisions

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

With Codes becoming available electronically, how about a consortium of a group of engineers that collectively buy and "share" the codes electronically.  Only one engineer could view any one of the codes at a time but with a good share schedule set up, it might work.  As it is now, the AWS code is not in my budget so I can't see it anytime.  Being able to at least see it between 4:00 and 6:00 pm on Wednesdays and Thursdays is better than nothing.  Sort of a Code "time share".

[sarcasm on]
How are those poor professors under their "publish or perish systems" going to survive if they don't have a frequent forum to harrass us poor working stiffs by proposing changes to codes that provide little or no additional safety, reliability or other benefit but provide additional codes checks that must be done for the same fee?

ACI 318-08?
Well, so much for going back to the six-year code revision cycle. Be prepared to 
continue shelling out $200 every three years, everyone.
