Steel Member (Design Only) Calculator to AS 4100:1998 (R2016)

Easy to use online Steel Member (Design Only) software for Australian standards.


The Steel Member Design Only calculator to AS 4100:1998, is perfect for the fast capacity design of steel members where engineers already have analysis results available (for example, when forces are being taken from a 3D analysis model of a steel structure). By enabling easy input of analysis forces on the member, the steel member calculator enables the fast, optimised selection of steel members from our library of thousands of Australian steel sections.

Presets Available

Presets enable you to quickly design a wide range of different calculation types using smart, prefilled settings to save time.
