RE: Moment Frame Algorithms??

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
To: Mark Rodgers and Jeff Smith
Having the software isn't the problem. I have STAAD III. I just want to
build a spreadsheet. I intend this spreadsheet to design the connections,
pad footings and grade beam in one operation.

Get Real :o)!

|| Aren't there some sub $500. 2d frame programs like

|| |~|I need to analyze a single bay moment frame. This problem

|| |~|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).
