I'm one of those engineers that has stuck with the old ASD. As I read over the new ASD (Allowable Strength Design) I realize that there is a huge difference in, well, almost everything. There are a few things that I like and am thinking about putting into existing calculation programs, but this would be a mixing of the old and new at least at the start. I don't see a problem with this except for the fact that the new spec probably hasn't been adopted in any building code yet.
If anyone has a comment about mixing the two, or comments about the new ASD in general, it might make for an interesting topic.
