You should also consider Visual Analysis/Visual Design. Our firm has used this software for most of this decade.

Osborn, 105422,501 To: SEAINT, INTERNET:admin(--nospam--at)seaint.org Date: 1/26/1999 11:42 AM RE: Question regarding best analysis/design software I am looking for recommendations on the best structural analysis and design software to purchase. Ease of use, detailed output, fast processing, and good support. are obvious criteria. I am currently evaluating Risa Technologies, Research Engineers, CSI and Enercalc, RAM International products. I am interested in 3D as well as 2D analysis capabilities and smooth integration with design modules and AutoCAD release 14. Typical projects might include complex single story, long span steel framed structures or multistory office buildings (steel or concrete), combined lateral load resisting systems (e.g. braced frames and shear walls in same structure), steel or wood trusses, tilt-up concrete panels, tall masonry walls, single and combined spread footings, continuous wall footings, pile cap foundations, cantilever retaining walls, supported concrete floor slabs/beams (one-way and two-way), concrete columns (square, round, rectangular), steel beams (continuous and simple span, non-composite and composite), steel columns and beam/columns, steel connections (moment, shear-tab, simple), etc. There doesn't appear to be one vendor that offers a universal package to cover all types of structural systems. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated! Thanks, Steve Osborn, P.E.
