Re: STAAD vs ...

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Nora,

	Consider either of the following.

GTSTRUDL from Georgia Tech
Leroy Emkin
casec(--nospam--at)cegatech.edu
(404) 894-2260

or

mTAB STRESS (a variation of SAP)
contact
Structural Analysis Inc., Austin, Texas
(sorry, no phone or fax)

	I've used the last one quite a bit; but I suspect that the first may be
better for your use.

				Regards,

				H. Daryl Richardson
