I'm considering not designing any of the masonry problems according to ASD and going full-on with LRFD. Is this problematic for the exam? I realize it's only truly required for slender walls, but I'd like to just have a good feel for it and forget ASD altogether because I'm pretty strong at concrete design already. Please provide your thoughts/cautions... Thanks!
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.
