|An integrated and comprehensible software including all the structural Eurocodes. It is a work and studying companion for all the Eurocodes, from Eurocode 0 to Eurocode 8.
Eurocode 0, Basis of structural design
A detailed design report is produced for the designed structural components. Assumptions, graphics, references to the Eurocodes and the National Annexes are shown in the report. The user can select the applicable National Annex. Design code parameters, material values and default values can be adjusted.

Truss rafter roofs
Truss rafter roofs, carpentry connections
The design is based on a finite element analysis of the truss structure. The truss is considered a two-dimensional frame structure, and the stiffness of the connections is adjusted according to the selected degree of stiffness. The natural frequencies of the roof trusses are computed from a dynamic analysis.
Detailed drawings of the truss structure and the connections are automatically produced. A specialized CAD modulus is included to customize, preview and print the drawings. Export to DXF and PDF files.
Structural fire design is performed for every stress case. The structural fire design is performed according to Eurocode 5, part 1-2, reduced cross section method.
Connections properties you can specify are steel plate type, regular or BMF, plate thickness, the degree of stiffness of connections, and the type and size of the connection nails.
You can also select to use single or multiple plates with more than two members in the joints.
Splices are designed automatically for long timber members.
