Version 3.7

SoftwareWhat’s new in 3.7

  • AISC 360:
    • torsional and flexural-torsional buckling (Chapter E);
    • bending (Chapter F) - for double symmetric I-beams, circular and rectangular tubes;
    • shear (Chapter G);
    • combined and overall checks;
    • LRFD and ASD design - both are available;
    • Examples for 3 chapters: Design Examples of AISC.

Fixed Bugs

  • Plate Buckling ABS 2006, DNV95 and 2010 - Element Midplane Stresses(without bending), Use Plate Average Stress options;
  • Joint Check:
    • Gap calculations included with nodes offsets;
    • Section E-3.4 implemented (can recognition on a chord);
    • Updated calculations of in-plane and out-of-plane bending moments;
    • Overlapped brace rules included.
  • Multiload selector is completely updated (to handle huge amount of loads);
  • Report Designer:
    • report shortcuts (Ctrl+C, Ctrl+V, Ctrl+E and others);
    • sort plots and tables in check by loads;
    • 2 items per page;
    • New text editor;
    • Improved Loads Content;
    • Analyze Model together with Generating report;
  • Creation of Load Sets and Load Groups is speeded up;
