Application for Generation of Height Span Charts Gable Frame Sheds
Excel/VBA Application used to generate height versus span charts for the limiting capabilities of structural sections used for gable frame sheds. Wind loading is to Australian code AS1170.2. Dimensions of frame can be changed along with most of the wind loading parameters, via the use of dialogue boxes. To change the structural sections used will have to change the VBA code.
WARNING: when run it takes about 20 minutes to generate one Excel XY chart, with several different height span curves.
NB: The opptional multiframe procedures will only work if have multiframe and provide a VBA reference to the multiframe COM object. The microstran procedures are suffering from improved feature: they don't appear to be working. I have other work books for that purpose. The span tables are working. Install into shared documents folder, and exelcalcs subfolder, and then a further subfolder schDesignEngineR01. DesignEngine is the main file, just press the big button and follow the dialogue boxes.
