Technical Specifications

  • Designs and checks using both ASD and LRFD design codes.
  • Beams can be wide flanges or channels.
  • End conditions include pinned supports, fixed supports and cantilevers.
  • Beams can be Non-composite, Encased-Unshored, Encased-Shored, Composite-Unshored and Composite-Shored.
  • Slabs can be designed with or without a metal deck.
  • Both Long-term and Short-term deflections are computed.
  • Slab reinforcement over supports can be input to accommodate negative moments due to continuity.
  • Cover plates can be added to the bottom flange to increase the section’s capacity.
  • Load input includes concentrated, uniform, linear and triangular force distributions. End moments can be input to account for continuous spans.
  • User-defined load combinations.
  • Reports are in Microsoft Rich Text Format, which works with Microsoft Word and is recognized by nearly every word processor.
  • Printable shear and moment diagrams.
  • US customary and metric units.
