I noticed a serious bug in connection design in ARSA 2012 (version 184.108.40.20675). The software does not update the results when I change the connection configuration or the loads. Furhermore, when I open another connection design file the results are the ones from the previous file !! Only when I shut down ARSA 2012 and load it again does the problem go away.
Where can I find SP1 for ARSA 2012 that is mentioned somewhere else in the forum? It is not uploaded in the support site.
The bug is really serious, it does not update results even when I switch between connections. I have attached a screenshot where you can see the results of a base connection while I have clicked on a column-beam connection !
Also, I think there is a bug in the beam-column connection design for EC3. For gravity loading the beam moments either side of the column are taken with opposite signs when clearly (as also shown in the sign convention sketch) they should be of the same sign. This has serious implications on the design of the connection (see web panle shear).
The update bug also happens whenever I switch printout language, from english to greek and vice-versa, despite the fact that the software shuts down and reloads in between.
SP1 is removed from downloads \ updates for now. You will be notified when it is available again.
