Cold-Formed Steel Member (Design Only) Calculator to AS 4600:2018

Easy to use online Cold-Formed Steel Member (Design Only) software for Australian & New Zealand standards.


The Cold-Formed Steel Member Design Only calculator to AS4600 is perfect for the fast capacity design of light gauge steel members where engineers already have analysis results available (for example, when forces are being taken from a 3D analysis model of a cold-formed steel structure). By enabling easy input of analysis forces on the member, the CFS member calculator enables the fast, optimised selection of cold-formed and light gauge steel members from our comprehensive library of of Australian CFS sections.
