A Reassessment of Codified Limit States Designby Carl J. Turkstra, Polytechnic Univ, United States,
Document Type: Proceeding Paper
Part of: Probabilistic Methods in Civil Engineering
This paper examines the nature of design codes and their relation to engineering practice. It suggests that codes impose unjustifiable and, in the long term, destructive constraints on the use of an engineer's knowledge, experience and judgment. A liberalization of design is proposed as a remedial measure.
