RE: Dome Analysis

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Not sure about dome analysis, but RISA-3D is a good general purpose
Structural Analysis program but not sure if it has a dome model generator
yet.  Might check their website ( or tech support e-mail.
The windows version has excellent report generation capabilities over their
earlier DOS versions (print out in table format like a word document).
Prefer RISA-3D over M-Strudl, Staad, and others...  can not say I have seen
the newest versions though.
