Click through for this facinating article that I hope you will share with your colleagues.
GeoPrac.net is very pleased to present this article on Load Resistance Factor Design (LRFD) for Bridge Substructure Design by Naresh C. Samtani, PE, PhD. This will hopefully be the first in a series of technical notes by Naresh on this topic. He is the lead instructor for the Ryan R. Berg and Associates, Inc. team of instructors for the LRFD Course for design of substructures offered through the FHWA’s National Highway Institute (NHI).
Visual Basic for Applications or VBA used in conjunction with Microsoft Excel is a tool that many scientists and engineers have yet to take full advantage of. This article is the first in a series designed to provide you with the basic understanding of how to use VBA and Excel in your practice.
