The software performs Analysis, Design, Estimation & Costing of Structural Steel Floors and Columns. Floor Plan shall be at a given Uniform Level (2D). Multiple Level Floors (3D) cannot be analyzed.

All Columns shall be 2MC T/T or 2MB T/T Box.
The Software basically requires a User to enter floor data for Joints, Columns, Beams, Slabs (Grating or Chequered Floor) , Point loads & Continuity. The rest of the things are taken care of by the software.

The results are displayed in the form of BM & SF, Beam Design Details, Quantities, Cost & Column Loads.

Graphics option are available for display and tabular Format is available for Editing and Deleting Data.

A User should Delete / Edit Input-Data through the various Program Options only. If any editing is done outside the design environment than Data files may become corrupted.

Extensive Printing options are available under each display. Printing is straight forward with default set of values ( Arial Font, 8 mm Thick, Bold, Portrait ).

The best way to go about the software is to Mark on the Floor Plan, Joint, Beam, Column and Slab Numbers. A Joint represents a Column location or an intersection between 2 Beams. The Beams are represented by its location in the form of Right Hand Side (RHS) & Left Hand Side (LHS) Joint numbers. The Slabs are represented by LEFT BOTTOM & RIGHT TOP joint numbers. All Joints will have X & Y Co-Ordinates, Top Left corner is taken as origin (0, 0). Joint / Beam / Column / Slab numbers should start with " 1 " and should not be repeated.

The Program will generate automatic Joint, Beam, Column & Slab Numbers from the information given in Project File. Some of these Numbers / Members may not be required & shall be deleted in a systematic manner as explained in the following chapters. The Final Plan Graphics should look exactly as the Floor Plan.
Cantilever beams cannot be analyzed.
Only Vertical Loads & End Moments on Beams are Envisaged.
Lateral & Compressive Loads on Beams are not Permitted.
Beams / Columns / Slabs shall be along two mutually perpendicular axis (X and Y). Polygonal (Multi-sided) Floors cannot be analyzed.
Only three (3) Load Cases can be analyzed per File, viz :

● DL + LL

● { DL + LL + Wind Or Seismic End Moment (WL1). } * 0.75

Wind Or Seismic End Moment shall be entered by the user on individual beams having Columns supports.

● { DL + LL + Wind Or Seismic End Moment (WL2).  } * 0.75

Whatever will the value of WL1, the program will reverse its sign (Multiply it by
 - 1) and use it as the default 3rd Case.

● Multiplication Factor of 0.75 will be applied within the Program by default.

End Moments (Wind or Seismic) are obtained by running 2-D or 3-D Portal Frame Analysis programs separately. User may use our 2-D Frame Analysis software for calculation of End Moments.

More cases can be obtained by manipulating initial values as given in the project file or individual Beam and Slab files. For example Analysis option can be re-run with LL decreased by 0.8 (0.5* 0.8 = 0.4 T/M2). Similarly masonry thickness can be decreased to get desired loading on the floor. However a designer has to 1st copy the original file in to another file (using Copy Option) & do the above mentioned modifications.
Export to Excel :

When the " Analysis Result -> Bending Moment & Reaction " option is Run, a Text file is automatically created. This File will open in Any Text Editor. You can also Open this Text File in EXCEL.
Start Excel -> File -> Open -> Delimited ->Next : Delimiters -> Comma ->Next -> Finish.
Now you will notice that Complete Data is displayed in Excel Spread Sheet.
If more than One File is Created, Corresponding to Each of Load Cases, than Open Excel Sheet for Each File (Load Case). In Excel Sheet Editing, Deleting, Sorting, Printing & Merging of Data/Files/Excel Sheets is Extremely Easy. This way any no. of Load Cases can be Manipulated.

Similar Text files are created in " Shear Corrected BM & SF " (Design BM & SF)  &
" Column Loads " option for Exporting Results to Excel Spread Sheet & its subsequent Manipulation.
Intersecting Joints between two Beams (Main & Secondary) is assumed as Hinged. Hence no Moment transfer is envisaged.
Connection between End Column and Beam is considered as Hinged. Hence no Moment transfer is envisaged between Column and Beam. However End Moments can be applied at joints as mentioned above under Load Case WL1.
For Std. Design of Chequered Plate & Grating, refer SUPER CIVIL CD SOFTWARE.
For End Connection Details Refer Standard Drawings.
