CSC upgrades software
CSC is releasing new versions of its software products during the first half of 2006. The first available is the TEDDS® calculation pad software – Version 9. The new version contains many new library calculations from snow loading to enhanced retaining wall analysis and design. Additional calculations for steel as well as other materials are included and many improvements have been made to the mathematical functions. CSC provides regular updates to ensure continual improvement of all their different software products, and compliance with the latest design standards and guides.
CSC has also launched a new Fastrak Wind Load Modeller. The new auto wind loading is in accordance with BS 6399 and has been developed for the Fastrak Building Designer. It calculates the wind loading for a structure using BREVe software using 3D models. The system can give significant time savings and can apply the wind load to automatically created zones for any shaped structure.
