[SEAOC] FEA of residential wood structures

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I am a CE/FP grad student at OSU and sent a message yesterday asking 
for information regarding FEA of wood structures.  My research 
involves using ETABS to model typical residential wood structures in 
order to determine if retro-fits are necessary.  I have heard that an 
engineer in California named Robert Crosby has used ETABS in the 
design of wood structures, and would be interested to hear how he used 
the PANEL element to model shear walls.  Unfortunately, I don't have 
an address for him.  If anyone knows Mr. Crosby or how to reach him, 
please contact me at the address below.  Also, I would be interested 
in hearing from anyone else who has used ETABS in the analysis of 
residential wood structures.
