I was wondering the same thing! It would seem more like a 5 minute hand calc. (oops, I'm showing my age)

Just curious, but are you saying it would take you 8 hours to write a spreadsheet that would determine the base shear for a simple free standing platform?

The spreadsheet was created by another engineer who used company computer and time to create these spreasheet.  He left the company, without unlock the spreadsheet. 

 

I did not plan to buy excel speadsheet.  I did not plan to spend another 8 hour on reinvent the same spreadshet.  I thought spreadsheet is just like another word document free to shear and not mean to invold any legal, ethic or cheating.

It sounds like the locked spreadsheet is demo only showing what it looks like.  If purchased, I assume the spreadsheet author would have sent a password/unlock key or something of this sort.  Since this was not done, it appears that someone is trying to get something for free.

I have small free standing platform.  I found an Excel sheet to calculate seismic base shear base on IBC 2003, chapter 9.  But some one installed a lock.  Therefore, no change or edit is allowed even the text.

 

Can some one share an Excel copy that not lock.

TIA
