No doubt that section was written with computers in mind; an excel form would do that math pretty quickly.  I haven't looked at it recently, so I don't know how sensitive it is to the damping coefficient. I've got a project this spring (monoslope awning on a single pole)  that will have to deal with it, and I figured I'd just run a bunch of cases with damping in the 0.1% to 0.3% range to see what the effects are.
