Use this software for steel and concrete structural designs

| By Chemical Engineering

SCIAThe recently released Engineer 16 structural-design software features over 350 updates upon previous versions, including important enhancements in concrete and steel design. For concrete designs, new workflows, a new shear-wall and frame module and improved beam and column design functionalities have been added to the software package. For steel projects, improvements have been made in the areas of composite floor members, cold-formed steel design and bi-axial steel-connection design. The software’s analysis and results capabilities have also been updated to include extensions for plastic strains, additional yield criterion and triangular finite elements during meshing for membrane elements. — SCIA nv, Herk-de-Stad, Belgium
