Developing structural programs using spread sheet based software

Abstract:During last decade, computer processing has been exceedingly replacing manual calculations in performing structural analysis and design. Proprietary software gained great popularity because of their reliability and the saving they achieve and has covered a large area in designlanalysis work requirement. Yet, a number of structural tasks is still uncovered and requires customized software that should be developed to the specific requirement of users who are - in majority - structural engineers (not necessarily specialized in computer programming). For those users who need to develop customized programs to address the areas uncovered by readily available proprietary software, SPREAD SHEET BASED SOFTWARE offers a suitable base. In this paper, the term SSBS will mean a proprietary software based on spread sheet format which can be used as a media to develop customized programs to serve specific engineering requirements. As examples to that are the LOTUS 1-2-3 and the MS EXCEL.
