My very dear OMS,

one of the things that perpetually fascinate me about posting on the forum is the manner in which people read, not the words I write but the words they seem to think that I meant to write. And there was me thinking for many years that my wife held the universal monopoly on such a skill?

let me repeat that I have no quarrel whatsoever with everything you have written; this whole thing kicked off when I in advisedly remarked that you cannot design for the unexpected and that, so long as you do your best, there is no need to lose sleep when people get killed. It goes with the job?.

I fully understand why someone can become offended should I doubt their ability or integrity but why on earth do they have to manufacture insults against themselves?

I'm not offended Ken, I was simply offering a view that appears to be different to yours over the "we cannot oppose the forces of nature"

Regards

OMS

One of the methods for connecting seismic forecasts to building design is through numeric modeling. Earthquake engineering is greatly enhanced by modeling the ways in which a certain type of structure will respond to seismic activity. Mannvit has experience in using the latest versions of advanced computer finite element analysis (FEA) programs such as SAP2000 and Etabs to assist in design and modeling.

Depending on the form of the structures being considered, different analyses may be necessary, including linear and non-linear, as well as static, quasi-static and dynamic analysis.

Mannvit´s projects include both residential and public buildings ranging from single family houses to complex buildings, such as power plants, dams, bridges, data centers.
