CSA S16 Member Design

Steel Member Design Software as per CSA S16 (2014)

Among the many design standard SkyCiv offers, is CSA S16 – Design of steel structures. With this software, you can design common steel shapes with the following features:

  • W-Shapes, HSS Shapes (RHS, SHS, CHS), Channels and Angles
  • Bending, Shear, Axial Checks – Capacity and Ratios
  • Combined, Slenderness and Deflection Capacity and Ratios
  • PDF Design Reporting (Custom logo on Enterprise)
  • View Capacity Results on Model (Integrated Version)
  • Import and Apply Multiple Load Combinations (Integrated Version)
  • Verified with third party results

Version 1 – Integrated

This module is fully integrated with our powerful structural analysis software analysis that allows engineers to model, analyse and design with one model. With a single click, the software will pull your entire model and test each member against the criteria of the Standard to determine whether or not it passes/fails the requirements of CSA S16. Loads, members and design parameters will automatically be imported for you.
