Construction of arbitrary 2D compact cross-sections. Geometric, Elastic and Plastic Section properties. Elastic and Plastic Bending Analysis. Fully Programmable. Integrates with Excel or Matlab.
Version: 2.0.4Structures Office L.L.C. is a new company, with the objective of offering high quality structural analysis tools, at low cost, which integrate well with commonly used engineering tools such as Excel and Matlab.
License: Free To Try $12.00
Operating System: Windows
In Release 1.2, Structures Office supports construction of arbitrary compact cross-sections, computes area, elastic, and plastic section properties. Performs elastic and plastic bending analysis.
Plastic analysis is performed by a numerical method, as well as Cozzone's method. IGES Import / Export.
The program can be run stand-alone, or may be embedded inside of Excel, where it can be driven with VBA to greatly extend Excel spreadsheet analysis.
It may also be used with any tool which can communicate through COM, this includes MATLAB, MATHCAD, Active Perl, ActivePython.
Geometry is defined with Non-Uniform Rational B-splines (NURBS). Written entirely in C++, it offers excellent performance, and works with advanced graphics cards.
Training is provided through a set of on-line very detailed video tutorials at www.structuresoffice.com.
Cross-Sections may be exchanged through IGES.
Version 2.0.4: A new Cozzone's method for plastic bending analysis of unsymmetric sections. Steel Section Database Integration for AISC, UK, and European standards.
Version 2.0.1: Changed code signing certificate Added splash screen Minor bug fixes
Version 1.2: IGES import & export. Minor bug fixes.
