Some useful construction programs for Structural Engineers
Go through the huge lists of engineering spreadsheets which can be used for structural analysis and design of concrete and steel structures efficiently. The spreadsheets are usable with the following construction software.
Go Beam – It is an exclusive construction program to analyze continuous beam easily and efficiently. If offers the functionalities with static and moving loads, support settlements, non-linear analysys of beam on elastic foundation and influence lines analysis. It also facilitates elastic and column support conditions, hinges and variable beam stiffness. The updated version of this construction program can carry out plastic analysis of continuous beams, progressive collapse or moment redistribution to optimize design.
ShortCol – It estimates bending moment/axial force interaction diagram on behalf of rectangular, T-shaped or circular reinforced concrete column containing typical or irregular rebar layout. Besides, it measures crack width under working stresses. It adheres to ACI 318, AASHTO and AS3600 design codes.
ShortColEC2 - Eurocode 2 edition of popular ShortCol spreadsheet that can be applied for reinforced concrtete column capacity estimates. The latest version can estimate crack width containing new graphics and a new wizard interface.
Column Shear Capacity – Computes shear capacity and confinement reinforcement concerning circular and oblong shape reinforced concrete columns according to seismic provisions of AASHTO 17th edition and and AASHTO LRFD.
SectProp – Figure outs structural properties of general cross-section. It also estimates torsional properties of thin-walled section together with shear center and warping moment of inertia.
PSGSimple - This spreadsheet initially accomplishes analysis of a precast prestressed bridge girder at the prestress transfer and service phases. It sizes the girder and establishes the amount of prestressing steel (AASHTO LRFD design code).
SmartComb - Generates load combinations and locates highest/least force envelopes for structural members.
