General design

PROSEC

Calculate the section properties of any cross-section Analysis

To calculate the of cross-sectional properties of general shapes it often involves the solution of equations that require numerical approaches. Prosec uses the finite difference method to calculate over 30 section properties.

You can import cross-sections from the section database or use Padds to sketch the section and then export the sketch to Prosec. The section database is fully compatible with Prosec, so custom sections created in Prosec can be saved for use in Frame, Sumo, a selection of the design modules and even third-party applications such as Autodesk® Revit®.

WIND

Code based wind analysis of rectangular structures Analysis

Wind eliminates the tedium of wind loading by computing the free stream velocity pressures, including frictional effects due to wind, on building structures based on a few simple inputs.

Three-dimensional depictions of input and output illustrate the wind direction and pressure vectors, thus reducing the effort of transferring wind loading to the correct regions of an analysis model. Cladded, mono- and double-pitched buildings are supported. Frame integrates with Wind via the portal and trussed frame wizards.

GUTTER

Design of gutters and downpipes for typical structures Design

Analyse gutters and downpipes that drain roofs of building structures.

Using the requirements of BS EN 12056-3 – 2000, the module design gutters and down pipes to drain roofs of building structures for specified rainfall intensities and design durations. The rainfall intensities can optionally be picked from a list of regions in the United Kingdom and South Africa. Gutter offers a 3D visualisation of the roof segment and a roof and gutter draining diagram eases result interpretation.

TIMBER BEAM

Design of timber members subject to axial and bending stress Design

Check and optimise timber members subjected to a combination of axial and biaxial bending stresses, e.g., beams, frames, and trusses.

The program primarily acts as a post-processor for the Frame and Sumo. It also has an interactive mode for the quick design or checking of individual members without needing to perform an analysis in Frame or Sumo first.
