PT Designer - Design of Post-Tensioned Concrete Floors

PT Designer is a program for the design and analysis of linear post-tensioned concrete floor systems. It is developed around the robust computational core of two popular programs – PTData.Net and PTPlus.Net, which many engineers have come to trust over the years for its accuracy and flexibility. PT Designer builds upon that by incorporating a user-friendly interface and attractive PDF outputs for a more efficient use of the program. LEARN MORE 

RTWall - Design of Concrete and Masonry Retaining Walls

RTWall is an easy-to-use computer program for analyzing masonry and reinforced concrete cantilever and restrained retaining walls. It checks the wall and footing for strength and stability under a variety of loading conditions including soil, water, dead, live, wind, and seismic loads in accordance with the provisions of the 2015, 2012 and 2009 editions of the International Building Code.

Quick Anchor - Anchor Design for Concrete per ACI 318

The Quick Anchor program calculates the tensile and shear strengths of cast-in-place and post-installed anchors (single or a group) in accordance with the provisions of Appendix D of ACI 318-05 through -11 and Chapter 17 of ACI 318-14. The program sports a simple and intuitive interface, and uses a sophisticated computation algorithm to address a wide array of situations that one can encounter in the field, and generates a simple output to provide just the final results as well as a detailed output to display all the calculation steps. It is an ideal tool for doing quick iterations for design purposes as well as computing the design strength of existing anchor(s). LEARN MORE

PTData.Net - Design of Post-Tensioned Concrete Frames

PTData.Net is a Windows-based program for the design and analysis of linear post-tensioned concrete frames. The software is extremely easy to use and is intended for both occasional and regular designers of post-tensioned concrete floor systems. PTData.Net can be used to design and analyze prismatic frames where the cross-section of the beams or slabs can vary from one span to another span, while the cross-section remains constant between supports in any given span. The maximum number of spans in the PTData.Net frame is 25 plus a cantilever at either or both ends. LEARN MORE

Anchor Pro - Anchor Design for Masonry per MSJC Code

Anchor Pro calculates the tensile and shear strengths of a single anchor or a group of anchors in masonry in accordance with the provisions of the 2005 through 2013 editions of TMS 402 masonry code. Headed or bent bar anchors designed by ASD or Strength Design are supported. A simple and intuitive interface makes it very easy to input all the necessary information quickly, and two output reports offer the users a choice to quickly check the final results or to go through all the critical steps of anchor design.  LEARN MORE

Wind Simple

Wind Simple is an intuitive program that implements the simplified procedure included in ASCE 7-10 and ASCE 7-16 that applies to enclosed buildings having a mean roof height up to 160 ft that meet the limitations in Part 2 of Chapter 27 in ASCE 7 for main wind-force resisting systems (MWFRS) or Part 4 of Chapter 30 for components and cladding (C&C). Wind Simple takes the design pressures from the applicable tables and sections within ASCE 7, automates the multiple interpolations that are involved, calculates the required adjustment factors , and provides all the results in a series of clear and simple tables and colorful illustrations. Provide the basic wind speed, exposure category, mean roof height, building plan dimensions, and roof type and slope and Wind Simples will provide MWFRS and C&C design pressures for all wall and roof zones. That's all it takes! LEARN MORE
