RE: Moment Frame Algorithms??

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Aren't there some sub $500. 2d frame programs like FastFrame, Enercalc, or
whatever. I use Multiframe and I can input and analyze a small simple frame
in a few minutes.


|~|I need to analyze a single bay moment frame. This problem is soooo simple
|~|and straightforward, I do not want to build a model in STAAD (or
|~|just to do this. I should be able to (if I had the algorithms)
|~|to create a
|~|spreadsheet and enter loads and the geometry such as height of
|~|frame, width
|~|of frame, Ic and Ib.
|~|Does anyone know of a GOOD source of such algorithms? Don't tell me Roark
|~|because it leaves out a LOT (still have to do development - it
|~|only solves
|~|for the unknowns) or Kleinlogel (out of print and I wasn't smart
|~|enough to
|~|snag my mentor's before he retired).
