Re: ASCE 7 wind software

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Bill,

I am currently using their software, but have found two possible 
programmatic errors in their calculations of open structures.  One of their 
 errors causes a conservative result; however, the other one does not. 
I've notified them over two months ago and they have not provided a patch. 
Instead, I recently asked for an update and received an email stating, "I'm 
 sorry we are not moving fast enough for you.  We are working on a complete 
 overhaul of the software and these things take time."

I have not mentioned this on the boards because I do not want to slam the 
company.  Personally, I don't think this was an appropriate response from 
them.  It does concern me that they have software out there that may be 
incorrect.  I've notified them about it, but they don't seemed too 
concerned about letting their consumers know.

Brian
