DESCRIPTION:



     The PERFORM HARMONIC ANALYSIS command and the DYNAMIC ANALYSIS

MODAL

command for a harmonic loading may abort due to an isolated data base

management error.  There is no known work around.  However, there is only

one reported incidence of this problem and since 1987 when the harmonic

analysis feature was introduced, harmonic analysis has performed without

incident and produced correct results.

     Harmonic Loading Condition Commands     Section 2.4.4.7, Volume 3

     Dynamic Analysis Commands               Section 2.4.5, Volume 3

                                               DATE: October 31, 1995

DESCRIPTION:



                              STEEL DESIGN



     Following parameters may exhibit print problems when an alternate

real value is specified for a list of members in the PARAMETER command.

These parameters include:



          BOLTTENS            Applicable to TOWER and TOWER2 code.

          TENFACT             Applicable to TOWER and TOWER2 code.

          UNLCFBF             Applicable to ASD9 code.

          UNLCFTF             Applicable to ASD9 code.



     When an alternate real value is specified for the above parameters,

the program tries to print the specified values as an alphanumeric value

rather than a real number.  This will cause an unreadable value to be

printed.  The three examples below illustrate this problem.



     1.   PRINT PARAMETER VALUES command.  Section 2.10.1 of Volume 2A



               Example:

                         PARAMETER

                         'CODE'         'TOWER'   MEMBERS 1 TO 5, 10

                                                  12 18

                         'BOLTTENS'     75.0      MEMBERS 10 12 18

                         'TENFACT'      0.8       MEMBERS 1 TO 5

                         'CODE'         'ASD9'    MEMBERS 21 TO 30

                         'UNLCFBF'      60.0      MEMBERS 24 TO 28

                         'UNLCFTF'      12.0      MEMBERS 24 TO 28

                         PRINT PARAMETER VALUES



     2.   SUMMARIZE command                  Section 2.9 of Volume 2A

               Example:

                         PARAMETER

                         'CODE'         'TOWER2'  MEMBERS 1 TO 10

                         'BOLTTENS'     75.0      MEMBERS 1 2 3

                         'TENFACT'      0.8       MEMBERS 5 TO 10

                         'CODE'         'ASD9'    MEMBERS 11 TO 20

                         'UNLCFBF'      60.0      MEMBERS 14 TO 18

                         'UNLCFTF'      12.0      MEMBERS 14 TO 18

                         'SUMMARIZE'    'YES'     ALL MEMBERS



                                                                 Rev. 2.2

          SUMMARIZE CODE CHECK ALL MEMBERS CRITICAL -

                         SECTIONS ALL VALUES



3.   Specifying a value of 2 or 4 for the parameter

     VALUES                                            Section 2. 1 of

                                                       Volume 2A

        PARAMETER

          'CODE'              'TOWER2'       MEMBERS 1 TO 10

          'BOLTTENS'          75.0           MEMBERS 1 2 3

          'TENFACT'           0.8            MEMBERS 5 TO 10

          'CODE'              'ASD9'         MEMBERS 11 TO 20

          'UNLCFBF'           60.0           MEMBERS 14 TO 18

          'UNLCFTF'           12.0           MEMBERS 14 TO 18

          'VALUES'            2              MEMBERS 1 15

          'VALUES'            4              MEMBERS 7

        CHECK MEMBERS 17      AS TRUSS

        CHECK MEMBERS 15      AS BEAMS



Work Around:



     When ALL MEMBERS option of the PARAMETER command is used, the output

from any of the above GTSTRUDL commands are correct.



Note:     The problem is only in the output of these parameters.  The

          user specified values for the above parameters are correctly

          used in the code check and design equations.



Applicable GTSTRUDL User's Manual:



1.   Volume 2A           Sections 2.1, 2.9, and 2.10.1

2.   Volume 2B           Section 2.2.3.1



                                                                 Rev. 2.2
