Import loads from S-FRAME Analysis results
Export section with reinforcement layout to AutoCAD DXF file.
Export drawings with numerical results to MS Word.
Batch Processing Mode
Processes large numbers of S-CONCRETE models (.SCO files) in batch mode (the .SCO files must already exist).
Generates various comprehensive reports with numerical and graphical information pertaining to the code check results and reinforcement details for all reinforced concrete columns, beams and walls
Multi-Story Designer for ETABS
Link with ETABSto import column, beam and wall forces from an ETABS analysis.
Automatically create S-CONCRETE models (.SCO files) corresponding to all columns, beams and walls present in the ETABS model.
Perform preliminary design of an unlimited number of columns, beams and walls through a flexible engineering workflow built on S-CONCRETE’s powerful reinforced concrete design engine.
Generates various comprehensive reports with numerical and graphical information pertaining to the code check results and reinforcement details for all reinforced concrete columns, beams and walls.
