1 Helping engineers around the globe design cold-formed steel structures since 1987 RSG Software, Inc NW Chipman Rd Lee’s Summit, MO ®

2 Sections Any cold-formed shape Composite shapes such as back-to-back Cees Open and closed shapes Cylindrical tubes Elements with holes Section libraries US and metric units Import/export DXF files ASTM carbon steel and stainless steel materials Custom materials Strength increase from cold-work of forming

3 Analysis Continuous beams, lapped members, beam-columns Several support types Continuously braced flanges Axial and lateral loads Load combinations for ASCE7, IBC, RMI Custom combinations Shear and moment diagrams

4 Output AISI North American Specification Editions: 2012, 2010, 2007, 2004, 2001, 1999 Full and net properties Torsional properties Effective section properties ASD, LRFD, and LSD strengths for tension, compression, bending, shear, web-crippling Interaction equations for axial/bending, bending/shear, bending/web-crippling Calculation trace

5 Direct Strength Method (DSM) Elastic buckling analysis using finite strip method Apply buckling load ratios to section characteristics Calculate design strength using DSM provisions
