RE: Truss computer program

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Archon Engineering, P.C. had such a program available.  As I recall, it was
quite inexpensive.  The last information I have on them is:
Archon Engineering, P.C.

Columbia MO  65202-1623
(314) 474-9135
Don't know if this information is still current.

	Subject:	Truss computer program

	Greetings!

	Is anyone out there aware of a truss program (i.e. only does
trusses)?
	Obviously, trusses can be designed and analyzed in a standard
structural
	program like RISA or STAAD.  However, we would like a program that
just
	does trusses that would have pre-made templates for various truss
types
	and that does not require having "manually" define nodes, members,
	boundary conditions, loads, AISC design check criteria (i.e.
unbraced
	lengths).  Bascially, we would like something that requires easier
input
	than a standard structural analysis/design package.

	Thanks,

	Scott Maxwell, PE, SE
