Following is the response which I received from Michael Brooks from Enercalc. I am posting his response to the list since a few people had concerns with the software or asked for feedback. I updated the software to Version 5.0.6 and my concern is now gone. (The absolute values of maximum moments and allowable moments are properly compared.) Thanks to all who responded. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ "Dear Mr. Armijo: Thanks for your resend of the post to the listserver. I was on vacation the 26th -> 13th, and did get the information but was having a hard time sifting through the progression of emails. At 03:10 PM 7/16/98 -0700, you wrote: >1. Which version of the ACI Code is being used? ACI 318-95. What the other gentleman said about us not thinking code references was a good idea is not correct. We've had that on a "to do" list for quite a while. >2. For the input above I get Maximum Moment, Mu = -19.56 K-ft and >Allowable Moment, Mn/phi = 16.48 K-ft and a note saying, "Beam Design >OK". Granted a positive number is larger thatn a negative number, but my >concern is that the absolute value, | -19.56 | is greater than the absolute >value of | 16.48 | and the beam design is NOT OK. Yes...this was corrected some months ago. Are you getting the maintenance releases? You can download the current 5.0.6 from www.enercalc.com. Also..... Fir this type of question, please fax in your printout so we can take a direct look. Even though you can recite the entry data, experience has shown that we really need to see the exact printout. If you sent it and I have not responded yet...I apologize. I am almost done with my technical support which I could not handle during my absence. Sincerely, Michael D. Brooks, S.E. Technical Services"
