Red Seat Software, a Structural Engineering Software Solutions Provider for S-FRAME Software, Inc. and Tilt-Up Design Systems, LLC., announced the availability of a video to augment their S-CONCRETE Design product for reinforced concrete beam design.

In less than 5 minutes, the viewer can readily see how quickly and how easily an engineer or designer can design, analyze, and code-check a reinforced concrete beam section. By starting with a predefined shape, such as a T-Beam, an Angle Beam or a Rectangular Beam, one can assess how much, and where, steel reinforcement is needed for the top or bottom of the beam, along with the amount of face steel needed along the sides of the beam. Stirrup configurations, along with clip details are shown to be added by simply clicking on icons within the user interface. While all of these features are being created and modified, a constantly updated code-check indicator, based upon the concrete design code being used for the project, is showing the status of the design to the user. In addition, functionality is shown within the video on how loads can either be input manually into the user-interface, or can be imported from S-FRAME Analysis.

“The concrete design capabilities within S-CONCRETE incorporate not only design principles, but also state of the art analysis techniques”, said John Parady, Principal at Red Seat Software. “This provides concrete designers tools to create the best reinforced concrete beam sections for their projects in the fastest, easiest, and most cost effective way possible. Videos, such as this, demonstrate the power and the ease of use of our concrete design offerings, and reduce the time needed to learn the software.”

The video can be viewed on the S-FRAME Software channel on YouTube and on the S-FRAME Software site at:
