6.74.16 is Stable and can be trusted!

Just a note to recognize that there were a few updates/patches to this version to get it correct. If you were one of the users impacted by this over the past week, we do sincerely apologize. We are looking into how this happened so that we can put in better software release controls; ideally prevent...

Attachment Geometric Load Nonlinearity

As most people know, Quick Pole has two options related to Load Nonlinearity associated with wire attachments. Both change the loads applied to the structure being evaluated, by monitoring the structure's deflections as the nonlinear iterations adjust the structure's deflection to find convergence. ...

Maintenance Release - 6.74.16

This update is being released to provide adjustments to the Nonlinear Analysis Convergence process to better handle difficult poles. Some poles were brought to our attention that reported as unstable, which was not seen as reasonable. In many cases attached guys were fluctuating between slack and ti...

QP 6.74.15 Update - Weather Load Cases and Structural Analysis

In this update an additional weather load case has been added called "special". You have full control over wind speed, ice thickness, ice type (glaze, rime, etc) temperature. This will help some customers address their unique requirements. As part of this update, the Structural Analysis pr...

QP 6.74.14 Update - Plan View Improvements

This update contains a few small changes that should help users in the Plan View when zoomed in and trying to select poles or spans. The span lengths now change color on mouse hover, the same as the span itself. This helps you select the exact span that you want. For poles, the “hit” area for a mous...

QP 6.74.13 Update - Structural Analysis Improvements

This update contains a new convergence methodology for Structural Analysis of structures. First and very significant, is that the new Catenary Cable Elements we introduced in earlier updates are now fully integrated into the structural analysis process. What this means is that during nonlinear analy...

QP 6.74.12 Update - SQLite Data Import

Starting with this update, we are Beta testing the import of Field Data into Quick Pole using a database as the source. SQLite format was chosen because of its small size and the ability of many devices and applications to generate this format. We are seeing some customers opting to load all their f...

Update to version 6.74.11 Recommended

The Attachment Geometric Nonlinearity feature used in a Nonlinear Analysis, is responsible for changing the DIRECTION of span attachment tensions to match the deflection of the structure under analysis. This feature can make a small difference in %utilization in some cases, particularly tangent pole...

Mandatory Update required to 6.74.10

Unfortunately we discovered late that a bug existed in version 6.74.09 that impacts guy loading calculations. The bug resulted in guy wires being modeled as being thicker than they really are, which made them stiffer, which in turn resulted in them having higher tension loads. We apologize for this ...

QP 6.74.09 Update - Span Profile Improvement and Wind Loads

In this update we added one additional feature to the Span Profile. You can now select if you wish to see the Minimum Clearance to ground level. Due to ground slopes and other factors, this may not be at the Maximum Sag point of the wire/messenger. If the lowest clearance is at one end, this will be...
