The SteelSmart® System Roof Trusses module is the only program available that is capable of designing ‘cee’ section truss members, connectors, and fasteners all at once.
Updated features within the Roof Trusses module include:
User input of bracing requirements for analysis and design trusses
Drawing and analyzing a custom truss shape, aided by the capability of importing an AutoCAD® DXF format drawing
Option to specify plated connections or back to back web connections
Users may select from 8 standard truss shapes or create a custom truss design. The standard truss shapes are the following:
- Box Truss
- Gable Truss
- Half Gable Truss
- Scissor Truss
- Half Scissor Truss
- Step-Up Truss
- Half Step-Up Truss
- Gambrel Truss
Each design scenario results in the selection of the members, connectors, and fasteners for the assembly.
Basic Software Modules
Choose from a wide-variety of common curtain wall applications, such as bypass, infill, spandrel, parapet, and opening conditions. Complete the assembly with TSN's connections and Hilti's fasteners.
Optimize load bearing stud elements in low and mid-rise structures. Select fromStandard sections or the optimal SigmaStudsection.
Shear wall design is simplified with the power of SSS 7. Newly added special seismic design requirements provide clients with multiple design options.
Choose from TSN'sPrimeJoistor Standard sections to quickly select a steel-framed floor system.
Design roof rafters and joists quickly and easily with SteelSmartSystem's Roof Module.
Select from a variety of common trusses, or create your own truss to design the members, connections, fasteners, and lateral bracing elements.
Simplify and optimize the design and construction of a short wall or half wall in residential and commercial cold formed steel framing.
Advanced Software Modules
The Lateral Load Generator/Distributor tool uses the dimensions and load specification for a building and calculates the total lateral wind and seismic loads according to ASCE 7 Standard “Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures”.
Plots framing layout of the wall and adds the connection design data (clip designation, number of fasteners, embedment, and screw pattern) to the typical connection detail. The drawing also includes framing members’ cross-sections and shapes. The drawing can be exported in AutoCAD;DXF format.
Advanced Structural Analysis
Extreme Loading for Structures Software or ELS, is an advanced non-linear structural analysis software tool designed specifically for structural engineers. ELS allows structural engineers to study the 3D behavior of structures through both the continuum and discrete stages of loading.
