Use S-LINE DESIGN to code check a variety of section types including: T-beams, L-beams, rectangular beams, and slab bands. Code checking includes strength and serviceability requirements for short- and long-term (cracked section) deflection estimations. S-LINE can automatically generate pattern loading and load combinations with the option to perform moment redistributions. Graphical output, including capacity envelopes on shear, moment, and torsion diagrams, provides clear, easy-to-read results.

S-LINE Features


Improved Operation

Option to manually enter specific values for the elastic modulus (Ec) and shear modulus (Gc) to be assigned to the beam and support members. Alternatively the program will automatically estimate Ec and Gc using the specified building standard or code. This allows modification of the analysis model and gives the engineer more flexibility in terms of shifting the bending moment and shear diagrams to and away from the supports.
