Study chapter 1 of the Underwood and Chiuni textbook carefully. Then write approximately 3 pages comparing chapter 1 with the loading according to the National Building Code of Canada (2015); omit earthquake and wind
loads. Then, study chapter 2 of the Underwood and Chiuni textbook carefully. Then write approximately 3 pages
comparing LRFD method as explained in chapter 2 with the limit state design according to the National Building
Code of Canada (2015). If available, use references like the CSA S16-09 Limit States Design of Steel Structures
or CSA A23.3-04 Design of Concrete Structures. Search and find a reference on working stress design of
structures and explain the differences in the concepts of the two approaches of working stress design and limit
states design.

You can use Internet resources; however the sites should be attached to an academic or wellknown research institution or organization. Write approximately one page about it. It is important to provide a
full citation for each source.
