  1. This is true but I started with assuming that R1 = R2. I can't quite read SGC's little figure but I think it looks like R1 = R2? 1780 FT?? If R1 = R2, then L1 = L2 and the PRC will be at the midpoint. Right?
  2. SGC, your attachment is too small for me to read the numbers but it appears that R1 equals R2? Is that correct? There are two kinds of reverse curves - those with parallel tangents and those with diverging tangents. It appears we have a parallel tangent RC in this case. Thus, if R1 = R2, then I1 must = I2.
  3. Hello,
    I have a Civil Engineering Reference Manual 14th edition. I am looking for the Index for it. Do you have it by any chance? On the there is only 15th edition Index.
    Didn't find anything online. Thanks in advance!

  5. Thanks EG. I don't have my CBC with me, in 1705.4.2 regarding vert foundation elements, does it distinguish between periodic and continuous inspection?
  6. There should have been a question mark in your title. I thought I was going to come into this thread and you were going to give us the history.
  7. Well said Badger. I need to digest your explanation a little longer but I think it is almost making sense to me.
  8. As with all my exams, probably 30% of them were wrong. I probably always just barely pass.
  9. I think it is fair to assume that if the Interims edition was required for the exam, NCEES would state so.
  10. What are we talking about??? AASHTO 7th edition what??
  11. Ok, so I whipped out my 2010 CBC to try and answer sample question #3. I looked at the inspection requirements in the Masonry tables (Tables 1704.5.1 and 1704.5.3 in my 2010). I assume the question is referring to continuous inspection, not periodic inspection since the question states that the inspector is required to be present during the placement. The only activity I can see listed in the table that requires continuous inspection is the placement of grout. So, answer A? Example No. 3 A one-story, fully grouted masonry wall supported by a reinforced concrete footing is under construction. Assume concrete strength (f 'c) is 2,500 psi and masonry strength (f 'm) is 1,800 psi. The presence of a special inspector is required during the placement of A. grout B. masonry units C. reinforcement in the wall D. reinforcing steel in the footing
  12. There is no such thing as a universally easiest depth module. Take the depth module best suited for YOU. In this case, I would say that would be Structural.
  13. Ok, edit made. I think my CBC is the 2010 version but I'll check in there when I get a chance.
  14. I forgot to ask, what are the costs associated with Scouts? Thanks.
  15. I have no idea what this means. Between this post and your PM to me asking me for the answers, I don't think we can help you any more. Best of luck to you.
