StruCalc 10.0 for Windows Beta version is now available. We are releasing licenses in the order they are requested slowly at this time. Please contact me directly if you are interested in a beta license. Note that this beta will automatically upgrade to the public final version when it is released.

Here are the two latest features in StruCalc 10. The long awaited point load on the Collar Tie module has been completed. We have also enabled the continuous footing on the Footing Module to work with distributed loads in Load Tracker. We believe these two new exciting features will help our users in their designs immensely.
