Standard CISC, AISC or European sections or parametric section shapes (over 25 shapes available).
All parameters required to calculate the resistance of the elements such as unbraced length, buckling lengths, buckling factors and others can be customized either graphically or from spreadsheets.
Latest revisions of CAN/CSA S16, AISC, ASD and LRFD, Eurocode 3 and 4 standards and Indian IS 800-2017.
Latest revisions of CSA S136 and AISI S100.
Singly symmetric, asymmetric and built-up section shapes are covered for all design codes.
Limit states design of the optimized structure are presented in colors.
Calculation of the bending, compression, tension, shear and combined resistance of steel and composite elements based on the results of a linear, P Delta, non-linear, seismic, dynamic or moving load analysis.
The design of composite beams accounts for long term deflections, partial composite action, plain slab or slab cast on standard or user defined steel decks and user defined studs.
The slab reinforcement can be considered in the calculation of the elements resistance.
It is possible to consider the analysis of composite beams with the full composite inertia or the effective inertia in positive moment regions or the steel beam inertia in negative moment regions.
Complete check of deflection according to a comprehensive set of criterions.
