Cold Formed


About the SAP2000 steel postprocessor:

1) Can SAP2000 design cold formed steel sections?
2) Does anyone here did any verification of the results of the steel postprocessor? Any bugs to report?

I used a soft that has a lot o bugs in the steel postprocessor.

Humm... one more: Is SAFE a good software? What is the number of the newest version of SAFE? (sorry if there is another forum for this question)

Thanks in advance!

RE: Cold Formed

The new Sap V8 is going to have cold formed sections design. It is still under development as for version 8.1.1 and I don't think is working correctly.  Safe it is a very good intuitive software and works great! The newest version is 7.01.

RE: Cold Formed

STAAD has cold-formed design for Canadian and US codes. I use it primalrily for ASD and aluminum but I know it comes with it for no extra charge.
