Updated October 2014
Fix to equivalent moment factor (Cm) calculation for AISC. In some instances, the sign convention for single and double curvature was not accurately calculated.
AISC Interaction equation H3-6 had a sign error and it is now correctly implemented.
Fix to the calculation of the eccentricity for AISC torsion design in single angles.
The calculation of the section modulus for CSA member design in custom (not included in the standard) sections was mistaken. It has now been corrected.
Fix to the minimum shear reinforcement in columns where there was no shear demand in one of the local axis.
Reports with very large number of pages caused an “Out of memory” error when they were being generated. This is now fixed.
The Welcome Screen library (DLL) caused member design libraries to crash when it was active. The library has now been fixed and no longer affects the design.
The out-of-core analysis option gave a memory error. This has now been corrected.
The pivot point in the copy rotate command was not working. It is now functioning correctly.
The local axis position for braces was changed during the import of RAM Structural System models. This is now respecting the rotation from the original model.
The self-weight of vertical shells (representing walls) was not being considered in the automatic mass calculations (magnitude and center of mass location). This has now been reestablished.
The Masonry Wall module was missing the reduction factor for shear demand in special shear walls. It is now included.
For a continuous (multilevel) wall, the Detailing page in the Masonry Wall module was malfunctioning. This is now corrected.
Some stability results were not being properly deleted when the wall geometry changed. Now when the wall stem, heel or toe change dimensions, the results are lost as it should be.
Cracked section properties for single and/or double reinforcement are now being calculated with the proper critical moment of inertia (Icr).
Several other minor fixes.
