 Update to v1.1 4 Years, 4 Months ago Karma: 50 I re-formatted the appearance of the "MOVLOADS.xls" workbook calculation worksheet to make it easier to visually distinguish which wheel spacings correspond to what wheel loads. In doing this, I oriented the page to landscape mode instead of portrait mode. I also added some input data validation to restrict the input value of the Right Span (L2) to always be <= the Left Span (L1). This because the maximum moment, shear, and deflection calculations are only performed for the Left Span (L1). The only purpose of the Right Span (L2) is for determining the maximum column reaction at the center support between the two (2) simple span beams. Finally, I added a "CAUTION" message off of the calculation page to the right and a pop up message on the calculation page to alert the user that when the sum of the wheel spacings >= the Left Span (L1), then user must input all other possible groupings of wheel loads/spacings that will fit on the Left Span (L1) to assure that the maximum moment has been determined. The only exception is the case for all equal wheel loads with all equal wheel spacings.

 MOVLOADS update to version 1.2 1 Month, 2 Weeks ago Karma: 50 While recently using the "MOVELOADS.xls" spreadsheet workbook for moving loads analysis, I inadvertently discovered that the program does not work properly for wheels loads that are input with negative ( < 0 ) values. Thus, I added the user input data validation to restrict the input values of the wheel loads to values greater than 0. This workbook is now version 1.2.
