Re: Software for metal building system

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Dear Mr. A.J. Young,

STRAP software is the best system for the analysis and desihn of steel
building. Using strap you can get not only least weight structure but
also most economical structure. Strap also handles light gause steel
deisgn and composite section analysis and design.

After analysis and design you can tranfer the file to STRUCAD for steel
detailing. STRUCAD is the maket leading and the best software for
structural steel detailing.

we are distributors for both the above products. For mpre details you
can visit our website at www.ramcadd.com

<br>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Are there anybody can kindly give me some advice
on the analyze &amp; design of the state-of-the-art metal building
system
which widely employed rigid frames with tapered elements (plate girders
&amp; plate columns) and cold rolled shapes.
<br>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Some manual method (still with the help of
MathCad) advise to divide the whole length by 500mm/1'-6" long
subsection
or just divide by 20 pieces of subsection (the typical length of
storage
12m/40? makes these two method the same). Are there any more accurate
method
for these frame per the rules of the ASD green manual? Can we do some
actual
modification to the monolithic stiffness matrix directly?
<br>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; I also want to know if a combination with
STAAD/Pro and some detailing software as the Xsteel ( <A
HREF="http://www.tekla.com";>http://www.tekla.com</A>
) can deal these well.
<br>&nbsp;
<br>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; I'm thinking perhaps there already come forth
some
tools to do the designing of metal building systems much more
productivity
than what the Butler are doing now. You see, I have tens of calculation
reports from them which show me the face twenty years ago! (Of course,
to develop a system for use within a firm means a great investment for
the logo of&nbsp; "proprietary").
<br>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Perhaps you can help me to do smart
choice.
<p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Thanks in advance for any assistance.
