However, I have not tried the multi-spring models. Using those models in the program, you will be able to model the axial load-moment interaction in columns. I am using only elements with uniaxial hysteresis models and I have not used multi-spring or biaxial elements of this program. I checked the program for few months using three and seven story buildings with three frames. By using symmetric-elastic, symmetric-inelastic, asymmetric-elastic and asymmetric-inelastic modelling for the buildings, I checked the results against the results of SUPER-ETABS, DRAIN-2DX, PC-ANSR, and DRAIN-TABS and found very close agreement between them. Regarding the hardware, I am using the program both on SUN Workstation and on PC. About the easiness of use, it is easy to use but like any other program one should work with it for a while to be sure that computer models the building the same way that you intended to. If you have more detail questions, you can ask Dr. Li (the developer of the program) directly using his email address: kangning(--nospam--at)aicom.com Abdi (A.S.
