RE: Moment Frame Algorithms??

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I think you can download FastFrame form Enercalc's website for free.
FastFrame has a "Frame Wizard" to quickly set up different frames and
trusses.

	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
	|~|whatever)
	|~|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).
