**SCAD, Kristall**

The length between restraints out of the bending plane can now be specified in the analysis of steel structural members. If 0 is specified (it is a default value), then a value equal to the length of the element is used. It applies to not lattice sections. The length between restraints specified by the user is not used in the calculation of lattice sections: the lattice spacing (**Kristall**) or the spacing of the fictitious lattice (**SCAD**) created according to the rules described in the documentation is used in the calculation instead:

*The parameters of the lattice are not specified in SCAD for the lattice bars. Therefore the lattice members are not checked in the calculation, and it is assumed that the lattice spacing for a hollow section from angles is equal to min(B, H), and for sections from double channels and double I-sections it is equal to the value В.*

The error that occurred at the selection of reinforcement in the case of the unification of DCF has been corrected.

Stricter adherence to SNiP at the stability analysis in the calculation of steel elements.

**Kristall**

Stricter adherence to SNiP at the stability analysis in the calculation of steel elements.

SNiP sections can now be found not only in the report but also in the *Factors Diagram *dialog box.
