Dear Mr. Surya,

After writing in your reply, last night, I had thought over it again on what could be a possible reason for you to be annoyed by my e-mail and yes I did get a clue.

I wrote:
If a client insists on getting a joint free structure, for any purpose, (which otherwise would have required one or more expansion joints as per the common practice) AND he is ready to pay for it, is there any lack of or restriction in, our "knowledge" of designing such structure? Or the CODES, for any logical reasons, forbid us to do this?

You probably thought that I was talking of the client paying (any amount) to me for designing any such structure that is otherwise not permitted by the common practice and the codes. In other words, the client is bribing me for some unethical or immoral act.

And what I meant was (as should be clear to probably everyone) that the client is ready to spend any money on his structure (of his choice). Because, of course if you want something more than the normal (like in this case, the structure will be designed for the temperature stresses and they can be tremendous, at times) you need to put in more money.

Anyway, if this is not what you understood out of me, then blame it on English language:)) Wish we could talk in our mother tongues on internet! But then probably we could not even fight as I assume that yours is not Hindi:))

Sincerely,

M.K.Mishra
