S-FRAME Software delivers customizable, innovative structural analysis and design engineering solutions. Our integrated products make it possible to analyze, design and detail structures regardless of geometric complexity, material type, loading conditions, nonlinear effects, or design code requirements.
Structural Analysis Solutions
Model, analyze and design 3D structures regardless of geometric complexity, material type, loading conditions, nonlinear effects, or design codes.
S-FRAME Analysis integrates Concrete, Foundation and Steel design within a single work environment to ensure maximum productivity.
P-FRAME Analysis is a 2-D analysis solution with linear and non-linear capabilities, similar to S-FRAME Analysis Standard or Professional editions,
Ideal for quickly modeling and analyzing sub-sections of larger structures.
Easily view model geometry, tabular result data and graphical results within a single user interface view.
STEEL Design Solutions
Design and optimize steel structures with S-STEEL, an integrated steel design solution.
Code-check and auto design for both strength and serviceability to multiple design codes. S-STEEL supports composite beam design, staged construction, and numerous optimization criteria and constraints.
Design results and Engineering Reports include clause references and equations deployed to assist the engineer in efficiently targeting passing or failing steel members.
Steel Member Design and Optimization
Quickly check a column, beam or brace without the need to build a complete detailed model using the simple S-PAD design layout. Easily input design loads and effective lengths of the steel elements – be it beams, columns or braces – then run that quick check in seconds, or even better, run an auto-design to identify an optimum section.
CONCRETE Design Solutions
Design and detail concrete Column Sections, Beam Sections and Wall Sections.
S-CONCRETE, a structural design industry standard, quickly and accurately designs and details reinforced concrete sections.
Automatically check thousands of concrete section designs at once. Produce comprehensive and detailed design reports that include clause references and intermediate results for multiple design code support. S-CONCRETE incorporates both concrete design principles and state of the art analysis techniques, making it powerful and featured packed, yet easy to use.
Define and detail reinforced S-CONCRETE sections within S-FRAME Analysis.
Fully integrated within S-FRAME Analysis for maximum productivity, ICD enables users to build, analyze and edit concrete models, run code checks, perform design group optimizations and automatically generate detailed design reports. Design and Code Check the entire structure for strength and serviceability similar to integrated S-STEEL.
Continuous concrete beam design and detailing.
Analyze, design and detail continuous reinforced concrete beams. S-LINE´s versatility allows code checking and automated design and detailing to multiple design codes for beams having a variety of section types.
FOUNDATION Design solutions
Foundation Analysis, Design and Detailing
Analyze, design and detail foundations using the most adaptable and automated foundation management solution available.
Create virtually any foundation layout while S-FOUNDATION automatically manages the underlying finite element model as you design and optimize. Visual results quickly identify areas requiring further design.
S-FOUNDATION is integrated with S-FRAME Analysis to form a complete analysis and design solution for the entire structure. Optionally deploy it as a standalone application and use the data import capabilities for CSV files and 3rd party analysis software to generate your initial foundation model.
Company-branded reports include all foundation definitions, input model data, results, intermediate calculations and material quantities.
All processes can be automated, and program features can be further customized to meet your design requirements.
The solution for mass timber, light-frame and hybrid timber structure analysis and design.
Code-check and design Sawn Lumber, Glulam and CLT members with consideration for notches, bearing areas and boreholes, material take-off and cost.
Run a performance assessment to design and optimize Dimension Lumber, Glued-Laminated Timber (Glulam) and Cross-Laminated timber members, as well as timber Shearwall and Diaphragms systems.
Feature strengths in our other solutions are available in S-TIMBER, including automatic mesh generation and model management, automatic section and material property calculations, efficient model management tools plus built-in automation and customization capabilities.
S-CALC is an advanced section property calculator for engineers. Efficiently compute up to nineteen properties for simple, complex, or multi-material sections. Define section shapes three ways:
- Selecting from pre-defined standard section databases
- Importing DXF or Revit™ files
- Creating sections in the graphical editor using the built-in shape builder
Section properties are updated and displayed as parameters change for what-if design analysis.
Validation and Model Sharing
View and generate detailed images and animations in object, model or FE (finite element) views of your structural model. S-VIEW Standard is included with S-FRAME Analysis but can also be run independently, free of charge, making it an ideal tool for presenting model and analysis results to clients and partners.
S-VIEW Professional contains the additional ability to export video animations.
