Steel Structural Design and Optimization Solution

Use S-STEEL to automatically design an entire steel structure or just a subset for strength and serviceability. S-STEEL supports numerous international steel design codes and an extensive range of optimization criteria and constraints.

Automatically generated engineering reports feature interactive formulas, equations, and graphics.

Fully integrated within S-FRAME Analysis for maximum efficiency.

S-STEEL operates seamlessly within the S-FRAME Analysis GUI environment, maximizing work flow efficiency with support for

  • Staged Construction
  • Composite beam design
  • linear static analysis
  • response spectrum analysis
  • linear and nonlinear time history (including base and multi-support base motion) analysis
  • linear and non-linear moving-load analyses

Access all S-FRAME's features including S-VIEW while performing steel design code checking and optimization.

R11 New Features
• S-FRAME and S-STEEL are integrated in one common environment
• Support for design of composite floors added to S16-09 Code
• New Composite Beam Support for:
    *  CISC S16-09 and AISC 360-10 LRFD/ASD codes *  Positive and negative bending moments
    *  Partial or full composite sections *  Shored and un-shored construction
    *  Metal deck configurations *  Parallel and perpendicular ribs
    *  Multiple concrete strengths and densities can be specified *  Strength and Serviceability checks
    *  Available for both automated Design and Code Check input windows *  Accounts for shrinkage and creep
    *  Automatic calculation of "Stud Capacity" and "Number of Studs Required" over shear span
• New Staged Construction Analysis and Design Module
• Span deflection limits can be assigned to each member, including cantilever members
• Assign member attributes to distinguish cantilever members from doubly supported interior members for service level deflection checks
• New design support the Hong Kong Use of Steel (SUOS05 and SUOS11)
• It is now possible to select only those Service Loads for which deflection checks are required
