S-FRAME ANALYSIS offers superior support for seismic load analysis, staged construction (4D analysis with discrete increments in time), concrete slab design, 2nd-order analysis for the new AISC 360-10 specification to account for P-Delta effects, Direct Analysis Method, linear and nonlinear static and time history analyses, moving load analysis, buckling load evaluation, and much more.
Featuring numerous productivity tools, advanced analyses, a variety of material models, flexible load combination methods, combined with fast and accurate solver technology and an intuitive user interface, S-FRAME ANALYSIS allows users to evaluate their structural designs using high-fidelity models under a large combination of environmental conditions to yield robust designs: designs that are less sensitive to loading conditions and deviations from intended design during construction.
S-FRAME ANALYSIS is fully integrated with our S-STEEL and S-CONCRETE design programs as well as with Revit®, Tekla® and TEDDS®.read more
S-CONCRETE performs comprehensive design and code checks for numerous international codes (ACI, CSA, BS and more) of reinforced concrete beams, columns, and walls with support for axial, shear, and moment loads, including torsion on sections.
S-CONCRETE provides axial force-moment interaction (P-M) curves for a wide range of reinforced concrete cross-sections with true axial force and bi-axial bending calculations based on strain compatibility of the section. Applied forces are plotted on capacity curves to easily show conformance for the analyzed design. Its powerful graphical output capabilities provide immediate feedback to the engineer as design parameters are changed. Once the design is complete, the ability to export the cross section with reinforcing to an AutoCAD DXF file showing the actual reinforcement layout, including primary and secondary bars, ties and stirrups, allows for quick and easy incorporation into engineering drawings.
S-CONCRETE Release 10.0
The design module S-CONCRETE™ R10.0 features both completely new and significantly updated codes, as well as expanded coverage of existing codes. At the same time enhancements to output and efficiency have also been made.
Release 10.0 supports the following design codes: ACI 318-08, 05, 02, & 99, CSA A23.3-04 & 94, BS 8110:1997 & 1985, UBC 1997, CP 65:1999.
Increase productivity and design accuracy with S-CALC, a powerful cross-section property calculator. Useful for simple, complex or multi-material sections, S-CALC is fully integrated with S-FRAME Analysis.
• Large variety of databases and parametric shapes
Choose between steel databases from USA, Canada, Europe, Japan and more, all with support for Metric and Imperial units, and displayed in region appropriate nomenclature. Selection of parametric shapes saves time and offers a high level of customization. Polygon shape lets users draw shapes by hand, and the built-up shapes tool combines shapes for efficient creation of capped, plated, mirrored and crossed sections.
• Comprehensive section property calculations including Shear Center, Shear Area, Torsional Constant and Warping Constant
Calculate geometric, polar, plastic, principal, shear, and torsion properties about the centroid or reference axis. Elastic, plastic and principal axes are displayed in the visual editor. Choose between database values, various closed form solutions, polygon calculation or Finite Element Analysis
• Multi-format IO for easy transfer to S-FRAME, CAD, or various structural analysis programs
Support for a variety of formats including TEL, TBL and DXF.
• Support for Multi-Material Sections
Create sections from a variety of included or user-defined materials and calculate properties based on a chosen reference material.
• Automation: Python IDE and .NET API
Built-in IDE with autocomplete allows automation of any workflow right from the S-CALC user interface using the Python scripting language. Alternatively, the included .NET API allows access to all of the S-CALC functionality in your .NET programs.
• Flexible and customizable multi-windowed user interface
• Powerful report generation with support for PDF and Excelread more
Use S-PAD DESIGN to quickly check a column, beam or brace without the need to build a complete detailed model. Simply input design loads and effective lengths of the steel elements – be it beams, columns or braces – then run that quick check in seconds, or even better, run an auto-design to identify an optimum section.
S-PAD DESIGN includes advanced code checking capabilities as well as auto-design to all the design codes supported by S-STEEL DESIGN for both strength and serviceability. S-PAD DESIGN can be used as standalone application with a simple spreadsheet-like interface to S-STEEL DESIGN’s powerful steel-design and code check capabilities.
