Software for Deck Properties

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

Dear Friends,

I am looking for some software which calculates the sectional properties of trapezoidal roof deck / mezzanine deck etc… in line with the AISI Cold Formed Sections design Manual. The software should read the Auto – Cad drawing of the given profile and calculate all the sectional properties considering the effective width of flanges/ webs etc as specified in the manual.  Is there any such package available in the market?


Also, In order to develop composite action in a composite deck profile, what is the minimum percentage of Embossments/indentations on the deck? Is there any reference or code recommendation?

Any ideas will be highly appreciated.


Thanking you in advance.


Best regards,


Sunil Thengale
