The RISA Mat program is still in the concept stage.

I was thinking I received an advertisement from RISA that  they had come
out with a new matt foundation design module. I just went to their  web
site and apparently it hasn't been released yet. Anyone else hear
something about this new module from RISA?



P.S. I will endeavor to be more diligent regarding  clogging up the
bandwidth with forwarded virus messages.

No, STAAD does not have a module comparable to SAFE.  And yes, $1 is
expensive for STAAD.

I appreciate all the  responses. It seems to me that there are many offices
using SAFE, and are  happy with the program. However, none of the STADD
users replied. It leads  me wonder that either STADD does not have a module
which is comparable to  SAFE, or no user is using that module. The reason I
want to hear the  opinions from current STADD users is that we might be
able to get STADD at a  discount rate. However, if the program is no good
for us, $1 is  expensive.

Any feedback is  appreciated.

   Our office has used  SAFE since the version 5 days, and we are quite
   happy with the  program.  As mentioned in another posting, it does
   require a fair  amount of computing power, particularly when no tension
   problems are being  run.

   The design features  are very helpful, and the concurrent interface
   (SAFE, ETABS and SAP used  to be batch programs requiring you to run
   them in DOS and then switch to  Windows to view the results) is great.
   I highly recommend the  program, and CSI is very helpful with their
   customer support as  well.

   My 2  cents.

   We are considering  purchasing a computer foundation program that can do
   concrete mat  foundation and slab designs. I would like to hear from
   current users which  one you would recommend to purchase, their pros and

   Any help is  appreciated.
