Jim: I visited your site and found it very informative. I noticed that structural calculations for Z-frame are done in accordance with 9th edition of AISC specs. As the frame is made out of cold-formed sections they should be checked against 1996 AISI code. You can look at capabilities of STRAP at http://www.atir.com/coldform.html as this is the only program that will do both analysis (including UBC) and design of cold formed sections (both ASD and LRFD). You can actually model and design the whole house or structure of any shape in STRAP in light gauge steel. Regards, Garrick Goldenberg, P.E.
