RE: STAADPro 2004 VS RISA-3D and others

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
These comparisons were done 8 and 10 years ago, and would be invalid today
as the programs have changed. I also disagree with the results then based on
today's programs regarding STAADpro, Etabs and SAP.

Several years ago, Modern Steel Construction had a
comparison of different software programs which was
useful.  I don't know if they have updated it since
then.  It would be great to see if the comparisons
have changed.
