Design Review Facts

Design review - technical name is “PEER REVIEW”.
Peer Review is a process of final check, making sure that the calculation represents correct interpretation of a formula or tabulation. For instance, a tabulated capacity of a column is 40 kips, inexperienced designer may just take it as the column design capacity without knowing that there is a condition that this column must be braced at certain point. This stress of 40 kips is for a fully braced column. If this column has no brace this column will collapse.
A beam’s tabulated bending stress is 24 ksi . The beam must be fully braced in order to reach this stress. A portal type frame subject to lateral wind load. If there is no moment connection at the two top corners, this frame will collapse.
Peer Review before construction is a small investment to catch drastic errors. One small catch will be worthy the review fee for the entire project.
