CMU Lintel Design Software

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I recently received a CMU lintel design program from the NCMA.
The program uses a Windows platform and can design both CMU
and precast lintels. Design can be accomplished via either the allowable
stress or strength design methodolgies. The design requirements set forth
by either ACI 530-95 or ACI 318-95 are utilized. Concentrated, uniform or
joist/rafter design loadings can be inputed. You can specify that arching
be considered and the program also considers the wall's self weight.. A
companion "Design Tables For Concrete Masonry and Precast Concrete Lintels" is
also furnished. No User's manual is provided but the design 
inputting is rather straightforward. The cost is $30 plus $6.00 for shipping.
If anyone is interested, the NCMA website is www.ncma.org
