Using actual effective length and input loads
The app uses actual effective length and input loads to calculate the best-match section sizes, so eliminating the guesswork involved with the traditional tabular approach. What’s more, users can now apply filters on the app, such as specifying a maximum or minimum size within the calculation, making it even easier to further control the information provided.
The app lists results based on structural efficiency, including the relevant technical details for each, providing structural engineers with all necessary information in one place and allowing for quick, efficient and informed decisions to be made about the steel section – saving valuable time and effort. Users of the app can easily save their results by simply emailing the details direct to themselves for future reference.
