Hi, Karen: This is in response to your inquiry about Roark & Young "Formulas
for Flat Circular Plates of Constant Thiskness" as presented in Roark's
"Formulas for Stress and Strain". 

< Below are the programs our engineering/computer group has developed. Among
them are three (3) programs from Roark's Formulas for Stress and Strain.
Because of the complexity of our programs we do not have demonstration
versions available. We do, however, have a 60-day money-back guarantee for
every program purchased from us. 

Note: Since one of our programs is marketed by the Amercian Concrete
Institude (ACI), you are invited to call ACI and inquire whether ACI is, in
fact, marketing our RECON program to structural engineers in the U.S. and
worldwide (see RECON program below). This inquiry would serve as "the best
reference" we could possibly provide for someone who would ask "who are we?".
 The procedures established by ACI prior to ACI marketing effort required
that the RECON program be examined and approved by Civil Engineering
Department of two major universities in the U.S. with respect to its accuracy
and compliance with ACI Code.

Since 1990 the RECON program is also marketed by the American Concrete
Institute (ACI), POBox 9094, Farmington Hills, MI 48333-9094. Tel:
810-848-3815.  Attention: Jennifer Stutler. (ACI's code for the RECON program
is 30SKW1).

AISC CODE CHECK - is a computer program complying with 1989 AISC
Specification (latest ASD). The program is written specifically for
practicing structural engineers. It contains a database of all rolled steel
sections as displayed in the 9th Edition of the Manual of Steel Construction
including W, M, S, HP-shapes, all Channels, Angles, Double Angles (both LLV
amd SLV), Pipes, Structural Tubing and WT-, MT- and ST-sections. Non-standard
sections made of any material and of any configuration can also be entered
into the program. Once the numerical values of X- and Y-moments, axial force
and member lengths (in X- and Y-direction) are entered, the AISC Code Check
performs instantaneous check of the member displaying equations H1-1, H1-2,
H1-3 and H2-1 stress ratios for applicable 1989 AISC Specification including A
ppendix B5-2-b. 
C(m), C(b), K(x), K(y), max KL/r(x) and (y) can also be entered. Complete
documentation is provided. Price $75. After November 1, 1997 the price is
$125.

------------------------------------------
GIRDER - Steel Plate Girder Analysis and Design Program of constant depth.
Complies with 1989 AISC Specs.
 * Designs / Analizes plate girders, simply supported, continuous or fixed
conditions (one or both ends)
 * Allows input of all commercially available steels and designs hybrid
girders
 * Allows input of virtually all loads and moment possibilities including
pre-calculated moments and shears. 
 * Allows input of different plate sized for top and bottom flanges
 * Checks flange stresses at side panels and checks web crippling and
sidesway web buckling
 * Establishes intermediate stiffener requirements and calculates end and
"next" panel stiffener spacing
 * Checks the girder by "moment of inertia" method and calculates inflection
point locations
 * Establishes additional stiffener spacing and designs bearing and
intermediate stiffeners
 * Checks web stability for different conditions of top flange restraint and
checks interior shear, 
   combined shear and tension stresses
 * Finds bending moment and shear at any location on the girder and
calculates deflection of 
   the girder and deflection / length relationship
 * Displays graphically Moment, Shear and Deflection Diagrams. Full
documentation is provided. Price $75.

CRANE - Design of Steel Crane Girders.  The database includes all W- and
S-sections and all channels as published in the 9th Edition of the Manual of
Steel Construction. The program designs the girder and examines stresses of
W- and S-shaped members and channels subjected to vertical, lateral and axial
loads from crane action complying with 1989 AISC Specifications. The program
displays graphically Moment, Shear and Deflection Diagrams in both
directions. Full documentation is provided. Price: $75.

Factors of Stress Concentration for Elastic Stress (FSC)
The FSC program is based on "Factors of Stress Concentration for Elastic
Stress" by R.J. Roark and W.C.Young, published in "Formulas for Stress and
Strain", 5th Edition by McGraw-Hill Book Company, Table 37. The elastic
stress concentration factor "k" is the ratio of the maximum stress in the
stress raiser to the normal stress computed by the ordinary
strength-of-materials formulas using the dimensions of the net cross section
defined otherwise in specific cases. The user of the program determines the
"type of form irregularity or stress raiser" in addition to "stress condition
and manner of loading" as presented in Table 37 in a sketched outline. Price:
$75.

Formulas for Circular Flat Plates with Constant Thickness (FPC)
The FPC program is based on "Formulas for Circular Flat Plates and Constant
Thickness" by R.J. Roark and W.C.Young published in Tables 24 and 25, 5th
Edition, by McGraw-Hill Book Company. The user of the program determines the
"Case Number and Edge Restraint" as presented in a sketched outline. The
program follows the nomenclature and the numbering system of Table 24. Price:
$75. 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------
Formulas for Flat Plates with Straight Boundaries and Constant Thickness
(FPS)
The FPS program is based on "Formulas for Flat Plates with Straight
Boundaries and Constant Thickness" by R.J. Roark and W.C.Young published in
Table 26,  5th Edition, by McGraw-Hill Book Company. The user of the program
determines the "Case Number - Shape and Supports" as presented in a sketched
outline. The program follows the nomenclature and the numbering system of
Table 26. Price: $75.
