Rigid Diaphragm Analysis Spreadsheet

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Some time ago I mentioned that I had a spreadsheet for Excel that was created 
by James Lord SE in Northern California (SEAONC) who sent it to me for my 
use. I finally found the spreadsheet.
It is a basic one story rigid diaphragm analysis that relies upon the user to 
input corner points around the perimeter of the structure. It will find the 
center of mass, center of rotation and will distribute shear into various 
lines of resisting walls. The spreadsheet will also provide the user a 
diagram (chart) that can be annotated and printed.
If not too many of you request this from me at seaintonln(--nospam--at)aol.com I will 
email it to you. I will also send a copy of it to Shafat for posting on the 
SEAINT website. 

Hope it helps.
