    Crazy to not bring IBC?

    I don't have a physical copy of the IBC, just a PDF of the CBC. My plan is to only print out the couple sheets I see myself needing (such as the live load deflection criteria). Is this crazy, should I just print out all ~800 pages?

    SE (Vertical/Lateral) Oct 2019

    For some reason I was thinking they only make changes after the October exams (I.E. the October exam always has the same codes as the April exam of the same year). But has this not always been the case? They have changed codes mid-year in the past?

    Do we know as of now if the codes will be the same for the October 2019 exams?

    Prestressed Concrete fps vs fse

    very helpful, thank you. I was getting a little confussed with all of the fs!
  6. What is the difference between fps and fse? fps: stress in prestressed reinforcement at nominal strength fse: effective stress in prestressed reinforcement after allowance for all prestress losses My interpretation, which I'm not sure is correct: fse is an upper bound to fps. Fps = fse when the prestressed reinforcement is the limiting factor. fps can be lower than fse if the concrete crushes first. edit: now I understand. My misunderstnading was I thought that fse was a stress after external loads are applied. fse = the effective stressed in the prestressed reinforcement, after prestressing and losses but before external loads. fps is the stress after external loads are applied.

    SEAOC Design Manuals

    Anyone have Volume 2, 3, or 4 of the SEAOC Design Manuals? I already have Volume 1. I'm looking to buy them if you've passed the SE exam and are done with them. Did anyone think that they weren't helpful or necessary?
