Correction to error reported in by Jobeandog 2014-11-14 21:16
"I believe I have found a couple errors in the spread sheet. I tried to post the corrections, but they don't show up. Cells C77 and C79 need to limit the drift height to less than or equal to hc. Also, the drift width cannot exceed 8hc."

Thank you Jobeandog and Epyon1077 for your good comments and corrections. I have extended both your XLC Pro subscriptions by 3 months by way of thanks.

I was using the spread sheet. I am old enough that I started out in my career doing drift calcs by hand, so I had a feel for what the results should be. When they were larger than expected, I dug into the equations and found the problem.

Thanks, the drift height and width for lower roofs have been limited to hc and 8hc respectively. Just curious, did you discover these errors because you were actually using this sheet and getting unexpected results or did you just do a more thorough job of checking the equation boundaries than I did?
