Version 3.002 - April 16 2014

  1. New help system.
  2. Improved bench and persistence analysis. Now can account for ubiquitous joints.
  3. Added correlation of beta and triangular variables for probabilistic analyses.

Version 3.001 - March 25 2014

  2. Fixed a bug with the display of passive bolts in the Info Viewer.

Version 2.041 - February 8 2010

  1. Probabilistic models with invalid wedges would plot incorrect cumulative distribution plots.

Version 2.040 - October 14 2009

  1. Active bolts with capacity greater than driving force would report a 0 factor of safety. Now they report 100 as the factor of safety.

Probability of Sliding has been added which is the same as the old probability of failure #failed/#valid simulations. There is a new section in the help describing this. This will change files where the failure plane angle has a finite probability of exceeding the slope angle.
