About the Connection Design Calculator

The Connection Design Calculator helps engineers with steel and moment connection design calculations with its simple yet intuitive UI especially made for design engineers, contractors and fabricators. Students working on their project can also enjoy the ease of use of the software.

The steel connection calculator primarily features structural steel connections commonly found in building frame systems. You can find a range of connection types that suit your needs without dealing with cluttered UI systems that require a steep learning curve to even get started. Just pick your favorite connection type and the rest will follow intuitively!

With the full Connection Design Software you can access the full range of steel connection types to preform welded and bolted moment connection calculations.

American, European, and Australian Standards for Connection Design

In this steel connection calculator, a selection of connection types are available for AISC using W-Sections and HSS. Universal Columns (UC) and Universal Beams (UB) are also available under the Eurocode (EN) and Australian Standards (AS).

Shear and Moment Connection Design

Steel connection design in building frame systems makes use of the combinations of shear (simple) and moment connections. You can use shear plate tabs or web and seat angles to connect your floor joist systems made up of wide flange W-Sections (I-Beam or Universal Beams) onto your main girders or leaning columns. Or you can explore our available moment connections for your rigid frame systems - bolted moment connection or welded moment connection.

Detailed Calculation Reports

The paid version of the SkyCiv steel connection design calculator generates detailed calculation reports with all the calculation steps presented neatly together with the worked sections from respective design codes and standards. No more black boxes!
