*ASDIP STEEL Structural Engineering Software*

## Design Your Steel Members Quick and Easily

## ASDIP STEEL

ASDIP STEEL is structural engineering software utilized by engineers for design of steel base plates, steel and composite beams, steel columns, and other structural steel members. ASDIP STEEL is based upon the latest AISC specifications (AISC 360).

ASDIP STEEL software is also utilized to design anchor rods and shear lugs per the latest ACI provisions. ASDIP STEEL substantially simplifies time-consuming calculations for structural engineering design.

## TESTIMONIALS

The suite of design programs ASDIP is an excellent complement to the analysis of concrete and steel structures. We use them in most of our important structural projects such as tall buildings, industrial plants and special projects. The results are presented in a format that is useful to keep track of the calculations, and the software easily allows you to change the input and optimize the results.Alberto Ordóñez Curotto
