The Steel Design software module in FEM-Design allows you to design and perform structural analysis on steel, columns, beams and truss members.
The fast auto-design helps you find the most suitable cross-sections. All section shapes and classes, including class 4 profiles, can be checked for all relevant effects (for example all types of buckling and stability) and for utilisation.
Perform manual or auto-design calculations to find the most suitable steel bar cross-sections. Run a check to verify, or design steel structures for fire effect. Thickness optimisation can be done for bars modelled with 3D shell components.
Steel Frames and Trusses
Three-dimensional frame and truss structures are easily modelled, analysed and designed in FEM-Design.
Common structures can be generated along with loads in a few simple steps using the parametric input wizard. The section editor allows complex arbitrary section shapes (opened or closed) to be created for bars, beams and columns.
