Version 1.02.13 Released – Expanded Load Types

1.02.13-1

CloudCalc is pleased to announce the release of Version 1.02.13, the application’s 33rd update since its initial launch on June 2, 2014.  You can verify that you automatically have this latest version by clicking on the Help Menu – the bottom of which shows the active version number.  (If, for some reason it does not show this version, you may need to force a hard-refresh of your browser, via Ctrl-F5 on a PC or Cmd-Shift-R on a Mac.)

The highlight of this release is the expansion of the available Load Types from the previous four types (Self Weight, Dead Load, Live Load, and Occasional Load) to nine types: Self Weight, Dead Load, Live Load, Roof Live Load, Earthquake, Rain Load, Snow Load, Wind Load, and Other Occasional Load.  Additionally all Concentrated and Uniform Loads may be assigned user-created Load Names, either individually or in groups.  Since loads may be manipulated (edited, displayed, or analyzed) either by Load Type or by Load Name, this effectively provides an unlimited number of predefined or users created Load Types.  Up to eight different Load Types or Load Names, each with individual Load Multiples, may be assigned to each of the Static Load Cases.

In the past we have heard from a number of our users that CloudCalc loses its effectiveness as the model size increases.  Typically as the models extended beyond a few hundred elements, the analysis time would often exceed the time out settings of the user’s browser.  Additionally, data-intensive operations, such as displaying the List View mode for very large models, often exceeded the patience of the user.
