S-CALC Section Property Calculator

  Select from a comprehensive section property list including Shear Center, Shear Area, Torsional Constant and Warping Constant and the newly added Principal Elastic Section Modulus

Automatically 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

  Large variety of databases and parametric shapes including the latest CISC and AISC databases

Select from numerous international steel databases with support for Metric and Imperial units, and displayed in region appropriate nomenclature. Define your own sections by customizing from an extensive parametric shape list.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.

 Support for Multi-Material Sections

Create multi-material sections from a variety of included or user-defined materials and calculate properties based on the chosen reference material.

  Multi-format IO for easy transfer to S-FRAME, CAD, BIM or various structural analysis programs

Support for a variety of formats including DXF, Revit, TEL and TBL. Powerful DXF features allow import control over sections, layers and shapes. Auto-connect lines and acs into section polygons. Automatically convert disparate unit systems and perform joint tolerance checks to unsure model connectivity. Import Revit section shapes and export calculated properties to S-FRAME.

 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.

 Multi Language Support

Available in German, or customize S-CALC by creating your own language or updating an existing language
