RE: ASCE 07

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Questions:	

1.  How many of the changes are due to actual failures in the field of
structures properly designed by previous editions?

2.  How many of the changes are due to mistakes in previous editions?

3.  How many of the changes are based on the results of computer generated
model failures that have never been experienced in actuality?

ASCE 7-10 is the very, very most recent edition. Be aware it is chock-full
of major changes. (Also be aware that it will not be referenced until IBC
2012. IBC 2009 references ASCE 7-05).
