Under Seismic Action Tab for ASCE 41-17 CODE-BASED SPECTRA, I hope you consider adding a SITE CLASS D (DEFAULT). If SITE CLASS D is selected as DEFAULT, site coefficient Fa should be at least 1.2 as provided by ASCE 7-16 Section 11.4.4, and this value is greater than the values in ASCE 7-16 Table 11.4-1 for Ss > 0.75. Looking forward to this inclusion. Thanks!
Thank you for your suggestion. We will consider making this change in a subsequent version of the program.
