wood design programs-Multi-Lat

Hi Paul:


You may want to look at Multi-Lat by list contributor Dennis Wish


I used the 1997 UBC version, and it was outstanding.  I have not worked with his new version for the IBC, but I’m sure it will be unique as well.


Let me know.

Subject: wood design programs


what is the consensus on a good wood design program for lateral force design. i am looking for something that can do rigid diaphragm analysis, perforated shear wall design, accomodate irregular geometries and torsion, system offsets between levels, and model steel elements that could be part of the system.  is woodworks a good program or is there something better.


thanks for your response.
