Added functionality of new Effective Length Calculator

I am liking this new calculator it super cool. But I have two ideas to build on it

1) The training video that Bentley created to demonstrate this calculator had the demonstrator use the calculator and then open up the input file to delete out the K factors, why not have that as a check box to identify what you want to include, so you don't have to go into the input sheet to do that?

2) Another thing that is closely related to the L parameters is the DJ parameters. Is there any way to include calculating the DJ parameters along with the L parameters. I realize that it might not be able to be part of the L calculator and might need to be its own separate calculator, but having something that could do that would be huge for what we do.

    Many thanks for logging these ideas. I would strongly recommend that each idea be posted separately as it means if one gets introduced you may not get notified.
