SusProg3D - Suspension by Design.
===================
Version 5.100 has a number of enhancements.

Thanks to all of those who made comments and suggestions.

In no particular order.

V5.100A (Build 1350.0)

bullet

SusProg3D is now available in 64-bit.
For all supported versions of Windows 64-bit.
A small performance improvement has been found compared to the 32-bit version.

bullet

Added the functionality to input parameters to generate a 4th order polynomial to calculate the tyre radius and the contact patch centroid offset.
The required parameters are the tyre radius and contact patch centroid offset at zero camber, static camber and maximum camber.
Thanks to Julian for this one.

bullet

Added a stop ring for primary and secondary coil springs. The position of the stop ring controls the transition point from the initial spring rate to the final spring rate.
Thanks to Adriano for this one.

bullet

Changed the spring calculation to use frequency or wheel rate to calculate the spring rate.
Removed an unnecessary Calc button and combined the spring calculation into the usual Apply button.

bullet

Excel input and output now include all four ride heights and reference points.
Previously if you were working with the front or rear suspension, then only the ride heights and reference points for that end were included. Now both ends are included.
Thanks to Neel for this one.

bullet

Excel output now allows for specifying separate bump and droop, roll and turn sections.
Previously all data was in one section. This now makes it easier to export just the sections of interest.
Thanks to Dimitrios for this one.

bullet

When specifying a front suspension with both top and bottom A-arms with "virtual pivots", the calculated and specified caster can differ by a small amount.
To correct this,  adjust the entered caster until the calculated caster equals the required caster.
Thanks to Alex for this one.

bullet

Using File | New caused an exception. Fixed.
Thanks to Terry for this one.

Your feedback and suggestions are always appreciated.
