Guideline for Practice (1987):

This 16-page document describes the traditional practice of structural engineering in Texas, particularly with respect to building projects. It provides a detailed Scope of Services to define what services a structural engineer in Texas is, and is not, typically responsible for. This document has been frequently referenced as the definitive statement on the ordinary and customary standard of care exercised by structural engineers in Texas.

Report on Design & Construction

Issues for Achieving Floors of Acceptable Flatness and Levelness (1994):
This 44-page document presents a consensus of opinions that assess the issues and suggest courses of action that will produce flat and level floors that meet the expectations of building owners. This document is directed toward structurally isolated and elevated floor slabs in office and commercial buildings, rather than slab-on-grade floors in industrial and retail buildings.

Concrete Tiltwall Panels on Pier Foundations (1998):

This 34-page document presents a new methodology for the design of tiltwall panels supported only at their ends on relatively small drilled pier foundations. This approach is the first published solution to this peculiar design problem, and yields results that are very economical when compared with the results of more generic tiltwall design methods. The document includes design rationale, analysis procedure, construction issues, an example problem, and a comprehensive Excel 5.0 template on floppy disk.

Price – Document + Disk – Member – $15.00
