I have worked in various offices from a small start up to multi office civil firms.
Before approaching him, it might be a good idea to run the “significant difference” by us. My response was “yes and it probably won’t, but from this point forward we have an obligation to meet the minimum code requirements”. Yes, I was pretty sure that you understood your obligations as a P. This was a great thread guys. Ron, I agree, I should have thought about that before I said it.
And I still remember that school with a bunch of little kids designed wrong, as an example, was worth nothing compared to something designed wrong for a Nuclear facility. Thank you for helping keep Eng-Tips Forums free from inappropriate posts.

Hokie66, The doubling of member thickness is not due to a change in the code, but a 35008 of the old working stress code. It’s easy to join and it’s free. Defense manufacturing is all about project manufacturing and project accounting.
I hope this helps. If the spec sheet has not been changed, then I am surprised no one has caught it at the City. I work for a smaller consulting firm.

Further, let him know that you will continue to seek such, but that you have a need to achieve some independence in your practice approach and ask him to respect that as long as you don’t ask him to compromise his own judgment and principles. Just mention what code you are using when you hand it to him for his review, so it doesn’t look like you are trying to sneak one by him.
Now that you carry an 530-08 responsibility, you wanted to learn as much about those obligations and practices as possible so that you could practice in the manner that the profession expects and in a manner so as to best protect the liability and assets of the company. That applies in writing, presentations, meetings and just day to day office communication.
New PE Needs Advice beej Maybe even mention that you used the new standards while studying for ac test and now that you passed feel you should bring it to his attention.
Download Now Defense manufacturing is all about project manufacturing and project accounting.
If there is a problem 10 years from now, is he going to come out of retirement and defend your design? It also works as “Your call?
Reasons such as off-topic, duplicates, flames, illegal, vulgar, or students posting their homework. I too am a PE basically working under another PE and this thread has cleared up a lot of questions that I’ve had on reponsibility. I researched older codes and determined that certain provisions had been misapplied in the methods I was taught as an EIT.
It is intended that questions and answers benefit more than just the apparent conversation between two people. By joining you are opting in to receive e-mail. Then you are right to use the current standard, or at the very least use the Working 3500-08 code with the correct interpretation. What I really need is some advice on how to approach the Senior Engineer.
New PE Needs Advice So did it turn out that you get to design the current way and stamp your own plans? If they are using current codes and standards, the standard of care requires that you do that as well. On drawings, do you not submit the applicable codes being used?
New PE Needs Advice Ron, I agree, that’s why I will not seal a design that does not meet the minimum standards of the latest code being used.
Good 35-008 already given. However, I don’t see a problem 3350-08 being slightly more conservative as long as the design meets the current code.
If everything I say is going to be scrutinized and I am going to have to spend 35-008 defending myself then this is a waste of time. He is not the one who has to worry about this for the next 40 years if your stamp is on it, he’ll be long gone. Ron, I understand what you are saying and I will keep that in mind from now on. If they’re in responsible charge of the drawings, do it their way. If it does, then there’s hell to pay.
Let him know that you still consider him a mentor and that you appreciate the guidance and assistance he has given you. That’s just one criterion.
The fact 350-0 there have not been problems with the structures designed incorrectly doesn’t mean the standard was wrong. What I meant to say is that I would be more concerned if this were a high rise building and public safety was an immediate concern. I understand my obligations as an engineer, those being the reason we are having this conversation in the first place. If you do not, you risk being adjudged negligent in your practice Aco should be 1.
You have to be a little bit careful with how you approach him so that he doesn’t just dismiss your approach as being a “newbie” who thinks he knows too much.
Hokie66, Shear controls in this case. Public safety is not really a 30-08.
First, designs are not only tested by time. Join your peers on the Internet’s largest technical engineering professional community. Dealing with a job right now that is a complete disaster because of this.
