Re: Structural Design in Excel

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I have to agree with Eric on this one.  I have tried
many of those over the counter programs, and I still
find the best ones are the one that I have written
myself in Excel.  Mine also have incorperated IBC,
AISC etc.  I rewrite as necessary, but find once I
have the main eqs down, it's basic to what I need. 
Try it, it's fun!!
