What's New

Coming soon...

We are currently working on a number of Analysis features which will be available to Structural Toolkit users with the Analysis Standard and current subscription including:
- Querying results (nodes, and members with filters) to find maximum results.
- Creating member segments (restraints).
- Creating member designs directly from the Analysis using the results and calculating segments and alpha m values for steel design.
- Creating end plate designs, apex designs, haunch designs and portal knee designs directly from the Analysis.

About V5.5.3.1

This is a minor update including formatting and corrections.

For a full list of changes refer to the Change Log

About V5.5.3.0

This update adds several new features including a Project Values Editor which enables wind pressures and wind serviceability to be automatically filled and changed automatically; and a new quick timber change button on the member ribbon for changing between F7 and MGP10 grades.

There are minor module updates, which are generally formatting. The Concrete Column has been revised to consider the biaxial compression and bending at the top and bottom separately. The Steel Member has also had a correction to the torsional capacity of CHS sections.

The analysis viewer has received a number of updates including the ability to create mono-sloped portals from the Wizard as well as drawing refinements of user result points (Wizards and User Result Points are only available with Analysis Standard)

About V5.5

This major update includes support for the AS2327-2017 Composite Structures (simple beams), AS3600-2018 Concrete Structures amendment 2, AS1170.2-2021 Wind Actions, Australian Rainfall and Runoff (ARR) 2019 AEP method for rainfall intensity, double span steel roof and floor beams added Smart LVL 13 timber grade and more. Multiple module Preset features have been added, and there has been significant interface updates to add new dark and light modes. Analysis frame wizards have been added, the analysis view has been updated, additional print view features including automatic print view setups have been added, a new member length feature added to adjust the length of members, and analysis printouts refined to match the scale of Structural Toolkit printouts. We also have new learning documents for the composite, concrete, wind and ARR changes. The .NET framework platform has been updated from 4.6 to 4.8. And lots more...

About V5.4.3.6

Addresses some freezing issues on some systems as well as minor corrections and improvements.

About V5.4.1

Minor updates to AS3600-2018 Concrete modules as well as the introduction of variable and uniform torsional udls to the Analysis. Intermediate results for non-uniform axial elongation was also corrected which could result in a linear analysis failure. And lots more...

About V5.4

This major updated includes support for AS3600-2018 Concrete Structures as well as a number of minor updates to modules. A problem with slow panning in the Analysis Viewer (on some systems) has also been addressed. And lots more...

About V5.3.4

The main components (spreadsheet support, analysis viewer and PDF) have been upgraded. Reactions calculation options have been incorporated and the member summary now includes span. Support for on-demand analysis seats on a network license has also been developed. And lots more...

About V5.3

The .NET framework platform has been updated from 4.0 to 4.6 as well as a number of framework components meaning that XP is no longer supported. There are also minor program improvements including a correction to reactions from unopened linked analysis members and several module updates.

About V5.2

Version V5.2 introduces the ability to apply reactions from other floor and roof members (See the tutorial in the Learning Centre), refinements to the Concrete Column FRP and addition of quasi-dead case for timber (refer appendix G1), linked Timber Member analysis dead combination check, as well as other minor refinements and fixes. The Analysis has received some improvements to the move functionality and some other minor interface improvements and corrections.

Read the article on using reactions.

About V5.1

Version 5.1 introduces an extensive update to the Timber Library incorporating 20 additional timber selections (including Hyne, Unilam, LP Building Products, Smart LVL, SolidStart LVL and formwork products); timber service class and variable J2 for certain timber sections; new Steel Library incorporating revisions to the Steel Iw and J properties for PFC's from the OneSteel Edition 7 and associated amended Steel Properties module reflecting changes; Custom Steel sections have E and G definable; auto Page Numbering of Exported Projects; modification to shear capacity of RHS/SHS sections including non-uniform shear; smoother Preview and PDF measuring; and in the Analysis improved corrections (including not allowing Linear Analysis corrections); fixed the sign of the local intermediate rotations; and also corrected intermediate unform axial load deflections and intermediate global rotational displacements for pin ended members.
