Wind pressure software

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I was wondering what wind pressure calculation software is being used out there.  (I am getting tired of doing this stuff by hand.)  I would like something that gives nice diagrams for calculation submittals - (not just numbers).  It would have to do Components and Cladding as well as Main Wind Force Resisting System loads.  I would like something that would do ASCE 7-98, ASCE 7-95 and BOCA '96.  I tried searching the archives but did not see much of a discussion. 
 
Perhaps a bit of a survey would help simplify my quest:
 
Type of software being used:
Components and Cladding (Y/N)?
Main Wind Force Resisting (Y/N)?
Diagrams for reports (Y/N)?
