When analyzing an existing structure for new loads, where the original design was "working stress" with the allowable working stress of the concrete reinforcing steel at 16ksi, how would you convert that to a value that could be used with strength design and factored loads?
Or would the more appropriate thing to do be to analyze it using the working stress method?
