## Using Redim and 3DFrame

I recently received a query about the 3DFrame spreadsheet failing to run. The problem was that the code was trying to Redim an array that had not been previously created with a Dim statement. This does not cause a problem … Continue reading

## Beam geometric non-linear effects

A quick and convenient way to allow for the effect of deformations on the behaviour of beams and columns under axial load is to adjust the beam stiffness matrix, so that the calculated deflections are in equilibrium with the applied … Continue reading
