ASDIP is a structural engineering software for the design of structural members and components, capable to create complex calculations. But how exactly does ASDIP manage all these calculation sets in a project? This blog post discusses this important part of the software.Structural engineering is all about calculations, and even a simple project may contain several sets of

During a recent technical support session a customer asked how effective the anchor rods are, as compared to shear lugs, to resist high shear loads. The obvious answer was that shear lugs are by far more effective. Rather than arguing with theories, I decided to quantify the answer by testing, using our software ASDIP STEEL. This document

Shear connections are typically used to connect beams to other beams or columns. Such connections transfer shear, with minimum rotational restraint, as opposed to moment connections. This article is an overview of the AISC provisions for the design of shear connections. Our software ASDIP STEEL will be used to support the discussion. – Click here to download ASDIP
