RE: 2006 IBC vs 2003 NEHRP

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
You have already received very good responses regarding this issue.  The examples are very good training.  One engineering school trains on the use of SAP by having the students redo selected example problems in SAP. 
Developing seismic design and construction concepts into code is a journey (how is that for Zen?).  There are some issues that we discover as the NEHRP evolves into the ASCE 7. 
The NEHRP design examples (FEMA 451) are a good training tool.
