If there is one aspect of building that confounds most
contractors, it is properly sizing structural components.
Poorly drawn plans, conflicting building codes, confusing
span tables, and a lack of understanding of basic principles
can add up to sagging roofs, bouncing floors, or even unsafe
structures. A computer is no substitute for the knowledge
and experience of a good structural engineer, but with software
like StruCalc, you can do some of the preliminary
work-and chop hours off your engineering bill.
