Steel Design OptionExtend your workflow from

analysis into detailed design.

Say goodbye to “black-box”

approaches that hide the

calculations from the user and

increase the difficulty of checking

and submission.

Don’t need the detail? Produce

summary information instead in

graphical, tabular and report-

based formats and quickly see

pass/fail criteria.

Learn it fast. Existing users can

easily apply the new designer

because it works in exactly the

same way as the other tools they

have become familiar with.

Create design reports individually

or append them to the report for

the whole model.

Mix summary reports for the

whole structure with detailed

reports of critical members.

Create templates to speed

reproduction of similar content.

“One of the key benefits thatwe see in LUSAS’ new steeldesign capability is theprovision of fully-detailedcalculation output. This allowsus to easily check the steps inthe calculation. We are alsopleased to see that the facilitysits fully inside LUSAS, rather than as an external utility. Thismeans it functions in a familiar way for the engineer as therest of the modelling process.”

John Harrison, Structural Engineer, Reid International

Testimonials

We used key clients to help assess the Steel Design option whilst it was indevelopment. Read what benefits they see from testing the utility.

“The new section checkingfacility is a valuable addition tothe tools available in LUSAS,providing a convenient andvery rapid way to verify steelframe structures. Time savedextracting results and settingup post-processingspreadsheets enables the engineer to focus on the nonlinearand dynamic behaviour aspects that LUSAS has alwayshandled well. Output is available in convenient contour plotsof utilisation, backed-up by detailed numerical handcalculation-style reports. This provides everything the userneeds to interrogate and verify the implementation of thedesign codes, which is a welcome contrast to the 'black box'approach of some other software packages.”
