COLUMN SPLICE

Design of bolted cover plate splice connections for I- and H-shaped columns.
Design

This module allows users to efficiently generate a connection layout with minimal effort. With Splice, engineers can choose from three distinct column splice types: internal plates, external plates, or a division plate.

S01 Member design for actual stress 200x200 1

STRUT

Steel members subject to axial stress
Analysis | Design 

Effortlessly design and optimise basic steel members subjected to axial stress, e.g., truss members.

The module primarily acts as a post-processor for the Frame and Sumo modules, but also has an interactive mode for quick design or checking of individual members without first performing an analysis in Sumo of Frame.

S02 Member Design for Combined Stresses 200x200 1

COMBINE

Steel members subject to axial, bending, and shear stress
Analysis | Design

Effortlessly design and optimise basic steel members subjected to a combination of axial and bending stresses, e.g., beams and columns in frames.

Easily process your analysis results from PROKON’s Frame and Sumo modules or use the interactive mode for quick design and checking of individual members without the need to first perform and analysis in Sumo or Frame. Simplify the design of a frame by breaking it up into different design tasks.

S05 Crane Gantry Girder Design 200x200 1

CRANE BEAM

Steel runway beams for gantry cranes
Design

Swiftly design and optimise multi-span crane gantry girders with one or two cranes.

The program allows for continuously or simply supported girders. Multiple combinations of main beams and capping beams, including standard I-sections, plate girders and box girders are also supported. The design procedure for crane gantry girders is like that used for statically loaded girders. Crane Beam calculates the envelopes for all the required design forces, including vertical loads and horizontal effects of the moving cranes, moments, and deflections.

  • Calculates force envelopes.
  • Crabs can have up to four wheels.
S06 plate girder design 200x200 1

PLATE GIRDER

Built-up plate girders
Design

Plate Girder can design I-shaped sections with identical or different top and bottom flanges.

The program also allows you to vary the section properties along the length of the girder to model a tapered element. The program checks the behaviour of girders under specified loading and gives guidance regarding bearing and intermediate stiffeners. The analysis output can be viewed graphically, or you can view the detailed design calculations.
