The program is designed to calculate the optimum cross-section and perform strength check of slender struts strained for buckling. The program includes:
• Selection of six basic types of buckling. • Calculation of area characteristics of 20 types of cross-sections. • Design of optimum profile accommodating the set load. • Strength check of the strut. • Calculation and graphical representation of permitted stress dependent on slenderness rate. • A table of materials and a table of area characteristics of W, S, C and L profiles according to ANSI/AISC and I, U, L and T profiles according to DIN/ISO.
The calculation is based on data, procedures, algorithms (Johnson, Tetmajer, Euler, Secant) and data from specialized literature and AISC, ISO, DIN and BS standards.
