Structural Analysis Program - STRAP

Structural Analysis Program - STRAP

Structural Analysis Program - STRAP

Has anyone used the structural analysis program called "STRAP"?
I am just looking for something that will do moment frames and other small type analysis, not real complex systems

Any input is appreciated


RE: Structural Analysis Program - STRAP

I herd about STRAP and evaluated a demo.
I own a licence of AVANSSE ( www.avansse.com ) and I am very happy with the program. I invite you to visit the web page and get a demo.
The software is very user friendly. I am using it for small problems as so for big problems.
Let me hear your opinion afer visiting the site.

RE: Structural Analysis Program - STRAP

I have not used STRAP, but I use RISA-2D, and it works great for the purpose you described. I use STAAD-III for complex, 3-D analysis, but it is bug-ridden. One drawback: RISA 2-D is only for DOS (works on Windows 95, 98, NT), but the windows version will be out very soon, I hear.

RE: Structural Analysis Program - STRAP

I'd second the vote for RISA...great program.

RE: Structural Analysis Program - STRAP

Our office uses strap for moment and braced frames. We have also used the software for concrete walls and tanks. The program interface takes a little time to get used to, but it works well. The concrete and steel postprocessor are an excellent tool for member designs and re-designs.
