Re: AISC structural Database

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
The following is from the September 1999 issue of Modern Steel
Construction:

Version 3.0 - AISC Shapes Database - Available in November 1999

The third version of the AISC Shapes Database will be released in November
1999.  Two versions (one containing all cross-sectional properties in U.S.
customary units and the other in Metric units) and two editions
('Professional' and 'Software Developer') will be available.
The Professional Edition of Version 3.0 of the Shapes Database will contain
cross-sectional properties of AISC shapes, including HSS, W, M, S, HP, C,
MC, Angles, WT, Double Angles, MT, ST and Pipe.

The Software Developer Edition of Version 3.0 of the Shapes Database will
contain the following:
?  	Cross-sectional properties of AISC shapes, including HSS, W, M, S, HP,
C, MC, Angles, WT, Double Angles, MT, ST and Pipe
?  	AISC's official naming convention (i.e. the rules of the convention
itself) for all shapes for which cross-sectional properties are provided.
?  	AISC's official naming convention (i.e. the rules for the convention
itself) for flat, round and hex bars, plate, floor plate and sheet.
? 	Corresponding names (e.g. 'LLBB2x2x1/4' and not the actual rules for the
convention itself) for each cross-section.  This information will be
provided in a separate data column.

I am using Autodesk Softdesk 8 AEC detailer & Plans & Elevations  with
AutoCadd 14. Not only dose it have AISC details it also has
welding,concrete,& wood.
I have been using these programs for about 10 years when they were AutoPE &
AutoCad 6.
These programs have all the AISC members & code that are in the steel
manual as well as the ACI details & code standers.
If you want the latest AutoDesk has ArchitectDesktop 2 out now with the AEC
menus in it with AutoCad 2000.
