Load Bearing-Shear Wall Wood & Light Gage Panelized Systems

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

Does anyone know of any software program that would allow the combination of shear walls, load bearing walls,  floor joists, headers and posts all in one user-friendly input system for the analyis and design of low-rise residential buildings ? I have not been able to find a software that would allow to model panels of shear walls, walls, and joists, all with a simple four click step that will create the joists or studs all in one simple step.  These buildings are becoming more popular but far more difficult to model all in one single model due to the great number of studs and joists when closely spaced, specially when the buildings have irregular shapes in plan.
