The increasing complexity of roof decking projects makes any software aimed at easing the process very welcome indeed. To aid this, Tata Steel introduced the RoofDek quick selector, a web based structural analysis tool.
It allows a user to rapidly select the most appropriate deck for the application and structural requirements using a PC or tablet, including iPad.
The software provides an optimised RoofDek specification, and it also allows the user to choose an alternative RoofDek profile. The RoofDek quick selector page contains pre-populated span and load figures as an example, but users can then modify these to their own requirements to find the right decking profile for a given project. All calculations are carried in accordance with Eurocode 3 on one screen and may be printed out as a record of the design.
The RoofDek quick Selector augments Tata Steel’s suite of roof decking software, which includes RoofDek Analysis Software.
Our RoofDek Analysis Software has been created in partnership with leading software developer, Trimble, using their widely-adopted structural calculation software, Tekla Tedds, as the platform for the deck analysis software.
This software compliments and enhances our RoofDek quick selector, allowing users to conduct full deck analysis.
It also completely satisfies the need to comply with Eurocode 3 Design of Steel Structures and Eurocode 9 – Design of Aluminium Structures.
Users are able to input up to four spans, two of which can be cantilevers. Extended end laps can be included as internal supports. Thickness of deck can be varied each side of extended end laps.
