Crazy to not bring IBC?

Recommended Posts

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?

Are you serious about being a licensed engineer?

Presumably after you aquire your license you'll practice as an engineer and possibly need more than just the few pages you printed.

Yeah, I agree, I didn't have the "official" IBC code book.  I just printed out chapters 16 through 23 (ie just the structural chapters).

Agreed, I'd just bring the structural pages and if you wanted to really cut down on the printing you could cut out a good bit of the structural sections that you don't feel are required.

I printed out the AASHTO with 4 pages per sheet and double sided to help with manageability so you could always do that as well
