David,

I use SODA too. I also published a link to the program several months ago. If you cant find it in the archives e-mail me privately and I will send it to you directly.

Regards,

H. Daryl Richardson

David,
I too couldn't stomach the cost of P-Frame or S-Frame.
You might try Soda (Structural Design Optimization
Analysis) from Acronym Software in Waterloo, Ontario.
It works to both Canadian and American codes.  It is
cheaper but will do 98% of what I have to face, i.e.
single practitioner.

David,

I just received a "sales" package for S/P Frame from Softek, John Ng.
I, too couldn't figure out S Frame from P Frame and figured that if
the software didn't clarify that, using it would be a nightmare.  The
prices for this software did not impress me, but maybe those are
Canadian dollars?  No, I just looked and they're Yankee dollars.

In my opinion, I need simpler software because I don't want it
thinking for me.  Just something to crunch the numbers and let me
decide my reinforcing, etc.  Softek looks too complicated for me - how
will I know if there is an error somewhere in there.

Best Regards,

Bob Garner, S.E.

Subject: S-Frame/P-Frame

I'm looking at structural analysis software.  Since college (I
graduated back in '98), I've the Research Engineers product STAAD and
it's many builds and versions.  I have grown to know the program,
however, there are a couple of things I don't like about it, whether
it be the company or the program itself.  That being said, I am
looking for another Structural Analysis software.  I am currently
researching S-Frame/P-Frame.  I am assuming the difference between S
and P is S is 3D and P is 2D.  I am interested in hearing what others
have to say about this program, and if there are people out there that
could give me a side by side comparrison between S-Frame and Staad.
I'd certainly entertain just about any commentary you could give me on
this software package and comparrissons.

Sincerely,
David Maynard, PE
Gillette, Wyoming
