Concrete Section Design and Optimization

Design, detail and optimize reinforced concrete beams, columns and walls with comprehensive design code implementations.

An industry standard, S-CONCRETE executes code checks and automated designs in an easy-to-use, interactive environment. View immediate feedback as design parameters are changed. Run simultaneous design code checks on multiple sections in batch mode. Comprehensive design reports generated by S-CONCRETE include clause references, intermediate results and diagrams.

S-CONCRETE supports axial, shear, moment and torsional loads and considers true axial force-biaxial bending interaction relations to produce detailed interaction diagrams with applied forces plotted on top of capacity curves to reflect the performance of the analyzed section. S-CONCRETE also incorporates seismic design and ductility provisions and the ability to export designs to DXF file formats with the reinforcement layout, including primary and secondary bars, ties and stirrups.

S-FRAME Analysis Release 11.1 and later integrates reinforced concrete section design via the Integrated Concrete Design (ICD) option. ICD enables users to build, analyze and edit concrete models, run code checks, perform design group optimizations and automatically generate detailed design reports.
