Correspondence on Vulnerability of Existing Steel Framed Buildings (Following the 1994 Northridge (California, USA) Earthquake: Considerations f or Their Repair and Strengthening) by Mr. P. Maranian

Mr R.A. Webb (Prescott Consulting Engineers) I would like to ask for futher information on the following points from Mr Maranian’s paper. (1) Fig 1 types 3 (b) & (c) show cracks starting away from the backing strip, and thus it is assumed that they started at some form of inclusion. Is it known how good the original NDE work was -were any inclusions within the Code limit? If so, do these need modifying?
