  1. Hello everyone, I am required to analyse a building that has both steel framing for the first few floors and is then continued upwards as a concrete structure. I was able to use AISC's direct analysis method to check the deflections in the steel framing and check the members using reduced EI properties. When I get to checking concrete, the code doesn't give an explicit method on how to do something similar to that shown in AISC. My understanding is that I can use moment magnifiers or run the analysis with P-delta turned on. My goal is to analyse the entire model in one fashion, and I'm interested in finding out how to analyse the concrete structure with P-delta. 1) Would sway/non sway not matter when P-delta analysis is done? In AISC, they mention that k doesn't matter in P-delta analysis. 2) Is the iterative method to find EI applicable for concrete as well? I'm using RISA 3D to perform the analysis. I would appreciate any help as I do not have a lot of experience in dealing with concrete structures. Thanks, Vishal
  2. HI, Where do I get the AISC steel manual 14 Edition ? Are there any sellers in the board ? Thanks.
  3. Hello Everyone, I figured I should introduce myself since I have been lurking about these forms a bit for the last few months. I am a Structural Engineer working in Utah. My background does not set me up well for this, I graduated college with a Mathematics and Environmental Engineering degrees. I worked for a buckling restrained brace (BRB) manufacturer where I learned about steel connection design. When the company was purchased by a competitor (and eventually shut down) they were kind enough to pay for me to take the SE exam, and for the PPI course. I took both SE exams in April, failed them booth. I took the vertical part in October, and failed it also. So now that I can't take the PPI course again I figured it would be best to get a study group, or at least accountability partners as I study for taking the exam (again). I am a registered PE in five states. California and Alaska being the most note worthy. I also am in the Navy Reserves. I have been gainfully mostly (f)unemployed for the last year as my non-compete with my previous employer expires. I also have been working for a local small structural engineer doing wood design. So I am coming to the point where I need to start working more and find a more real job. My other interests is big data analytics (I wrote a Master's Thesis on it), biking, hiking, fishing, hunting, skiing (got out 60 times in the 15-16 winter, already at 6 times for this winter), backpacking, and studying for the SE exam (ugh). I also enjoy politics, in a more philosophical sort of way. I am also relatively active in a local Rotary club. I was active in the local Structural Engineers Association of Utah, but I am taking a year off from that group. Cheers,
  4. Hi, Anyone knows about steel fabricator certification process from ICC. We have two projects in San Bernardino project as a steel supplier for solar trackers. Building reviewer is requiring us to have either ICC or AISC QMS approval or he would like to test material on site. AISC fabricators certification is very expensive (over $10k) and was wondering what would be the requirements for ICC certifications. I would not find any details on their iccsafe website. Thank you, Kiran
  5. Equation E7-04 uses the b/t limit of 0.56 times the E/Fy squareroot while the table B4.1 uses 0.54. It seems to me that these should be the same number. Agree or not?
  6. I've been going through enough steel connection problems to make me second guess myself. Isn't shear lag rupture strength using table D3.1 the same as the tension rupture strength? Why are there two different terms for it? Is it a tom-ay-toe vs. tom-ah-toe type deal?
  7. Hey all- I'm gearing up for the October SE Vertical exam and have a quick question regarding ASD vs LRFD. I don't have the 13th edition of the AISC manual that combines LRFD and ASD and have done nearly all of my steel design (not program based) by ASD. All information I had read to date says "examinees will have the option to work problems in ASD or LRFD". I'm working through a few sample problems and some specify which IBC combination to use, one of which is a steel design problem specifying and LRFD combo. Are you restricted to LRFD in this case? If so, I need to get my hands on a revised steel manual. Thanks and good luck to all preparing for the exam.
