Stand-Alone Programs for Steel Structures
The CRANEWAY stand-alone program calculates and performs all required design checks of crane runway girders according to Eurocode 3.
You can optionally select between bridge or suspension cranes.
The stand‑alone program PLATE‑BUCKLING performs plate buckling analysis of rectangular plates according to EN 1993‑1‑5:2006 or DIN 18800-3:1990‑11.
It is possible to apply horizontal or vertical stiffeners to the plates (for example flat plates, angles, T‑stiffeners, trapezoidal stiffeners, C‑sections).
Moment frame design according to AISC 341-16 is now possible in the Steel Design add-on of RFEM 6. The seismic design result is categorized into two sections: member requirements and connection requirements. This article covers the required strength of the connection. An example comparison of the results between RFEM and the AISC Seismic Design Manual  is presented.
