Five readers responded to an article on responsibility for structural steel details published inCivil Engineering—ASCE, Oct. 1983. Most agree that the engineer of record must be the responsible party, but there is a strong feeling by others that the fabricator is the most competent to design the details and therefore, should assume some of the responsibility. The article reports opinions without drawing conclusions.
