The program for design of steel cross-sections and members according to EN 1993-1-1 and EN 1993-1-4 (Eurocode 3). The program can work as a standalone application or verification module in programs FIN 2D and FIN 3D.
The program works as a standalone application or as a designing module in programs FIN 3D and FIN 2D. In this mode, the structure is created in FIN programs, that calculate deformations and internal forces. These results are transferred into the program Steel. This program performs the verification according to the given standard. Results and updated cross-sections are transferred back into FIN programs. Such mutual communication leads to efficient optimization of structure design.
The program has been developed in collaboration with a team of specialists from the Faculty of Civil Engineering of CTU in Prague. Technical guarantor of the project is Prof. Ing. Frantisek Wald, Csc.
The program Steel works separately, however the work can be simplified when using it together with the following programs for structural analysis:
This program can be also used for design of steel structures:
Each program solves one task. The software therefore stays intuitive and easy to use.
Easily verify the applicability and validity of the analysis.
Text and graphical outputs with a possibility of complex output range editing.
I appreciate the simple, clear, and quickly performed verifying of elements, whether manually entered internal forces, calculated by the program itself, or imported from a csv file.
The strength of these programs is their ease of use and clear output documentation. You can choose between summary outputs on one page or more detailed ones.
Without analysis restrictions and for free.
