Re: Residential Design Spreadsheet

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Vinod,

Getting into the Code and understanding it needs to come first.  The
spreadsheet is a marvelous tool -- Dennis and his collaborators have done an
impressively great job.  But they would not have done us a favor by making
the tool so intuitive and easy to use that we could [think we could] use it
without understanding the Code.

As you decide from the Code what you want to do, you'll probably find that
you can do it with the spreadsheet.  You'll get it.

Wishing you well,

Nels Roselund
Structural Engineer
