Structural Engineering Calculation Software

2D Frame Analysis & Design

Module Summary

  • Provides general purpose 2D frame analysis capability
  • Incorporates stress checking based on ASD or LRFD design methodology
  • Frame Wizard offers the ability to quickly define geometry parametrically for many typical configurations of trusses and frames
  • Features free-form definition of joint coordinates and member incidences
  • Joint generation function facilitates the automatic generation of joints and members for repetitive geometry
  • Allows loads to be applied to joints and to members
  • Offers option of fixed or free boundary conditions
  • Includes full wood and rolled steel section databases
  • Offers the convenience of fill-in-the-blanks style forms and instantaneous recalculation to facilitate the evaluation of “what-if” scenarios
  • Provides highly efficient results summaries as well as generous detail in the on-screen and printed results
