    Dear Jacques Tshilumbu,

    The version you are running is from 2001.
    The bug you are experiencing was most likely fixed a number of years ago.

    Please upgrade to the latest version of SAC, v101.5. It can be obtained from IRIS at

    I get a segmentation fault generated by sac2000 but I don't find why it doesn´t run correctellly.
