Improvement in user defined truss modeling Improvement Lot of improvements in modeling of user defined trusses to save time in modeling.
Detail report on Pattern loading in PDF format. New Feature Under load - > Reports a PDF report for pattern loading is added which gives clear idea about various combination s of pattern loading.
Window selection option in column orient windowNew Feature In column orient view for multiple selection of columns window selection option is given to save time in modeling.
Footing level with node numbers in postprocessor New Feature In postprocessor mode for space-frame analysis an option is given to set the footing level to see the node numbers at footing level, this helps to check the support reactions from analysis report.
Use of Fe550 grade steel in design New Feature Use of Fe 550 grade steel in design of Slabs, Beams, Columns, Footings and Shear walls is implemented.
DXF drawing for beam design details New Feature A DXF drawing in beam design is introduced to give Ast required at support & Mid-span, BM at support & Mid-span as well SF at support.
User defined combination of bar and diameter New Feature Detailing of beam as per user defined bar and diameter data for beam design. The data can be modified as per requirement in excel sheet at specified location.
Design of beams by effective depth calculation New Feature Design of beam by calculating effective depth automatically as per detailing. If you give values for clear covers then depending on the reinforcement provided the effective covers will be calculated and accordingly the design will be checked.
