RE: ASME documents

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

Are not all codes and standards like that…lots of shades of gray and not 
much of black and white. Anyway to answer your question, yes, last year I 
had to use it for a client who needed rating or equipment certification for 
 their makeshift lifting devices…will have to agree with you that it is 
highly encrypted and a difficult read, especially for someone who has a 
civil/structural background. I had to check limit states for tension yield, 
 tension fracture and block shear rupture and it was not fun.

Subject: [SEAINT-SEAOSC] ASME documents

I purchased (in 2009 I think) a specification from ASME "BTH-1 2008"
which is a document on lifting devices hence the name Below The Hook. It 
was encrypted and I had to go through a rigamarole to open the spec. Used 
it once. I tried to open it yesterday and couldn't as it said it was an 
encrypted document. No luck whatsoever. Has anybody out there had this 
experience?  It really cheesed me off the first time and now here we go 
again.  That and ASME's continuous pleading to join them has really turned 
me off. Like to hear from you. As soon as the sun is high enough I will 
call them. Gary
