A full-featured online structural analysis software, including beams, plates and cables
reinforced concrete structure design software

Add beams, rebar, and loads within minutes

  • Run complete Reinforced Concrete beam design and RC column design for ACI 318, EN2, CSA, A23, BS 8110, and AS 3600.
  • Fully built into SkyCiv 3D Structural Analysis Software and Beam Software, or add your own beam input.
  • Add, edit and remove longitudinal and shear rebar, with graphics.
  • Add multiple layers of top, bottom, and stirrup reinforcement.
  • Import multiple load combinations from US, UK, EU, CAN, and AUS libraries.
  • Add in forces or use SkyCiv analysis software to pull in results.
  • A clear summary of results with green and red pass/fail results.
  • Helpful documentation, including verification models.

Detailed calculation reports

SkyCiv believes engineers should have access to all the information about their designs. This includes the calculations made by the software. SkyCiv Concrete Design reports show the full step-by-step calculations, which structural engineers can review:

  • References to relevant chapters and checks (for ACI 318, EN2, CSA A23, BS 8110, and AS 3600).
  • Custom Company logo and model setup information.
  • Detailed calculations of plastic centroid values.
  • Relevant assumptions and failure criteria.
  • Clear pass/fail summary results.
  • Download Sample Reinforce Concrete Calculation Report.

Custom section design

The SkyCiv General Section Designer module allows you to add reinforcement and loads to test your section's moment and axial capacities. Design your concrete sections easily, using SkyCiv General Section Designer:

  • Add template or custom shapes via Section Builder.
  • Easy reinforcement input and editing capabilities.
  • Load in common materials, or add your own custom materials.
  • Apply multiple loads, testing more than one case in one go.
  • Review moment and axial capacities, stress/strains, stress contours, and utility ratios.
  • Review real-time M-N interaction curves.

Integrated with SkyCiv Structural 3D

With nothing to download or install, you can instantly pull the forces, spans, loads, and load combinations directly from your structural analysis model. Instantly check your model for flexure, shear, axial, and much more.

  • Also fully integrated with SkyCiv Beam.
  • Forces automatically imported from structural models.
  • Supports load combinations from ASCE 7-10, AS 1170, EN1 and NBCC.
  • Spans, cross-sections and materials imported from your model.
  • Class and group members together, to complete one design for multiple members.

Reinforced concrete slab design

SkyCiv also has powerful slab design capabilities for ACI 318, AS3600 and EN2 for concrete slab and plate design! This is available under our slab design module, which includes the following features:

  • Automatically imports materials and analysis results from S3D.
  • Automatically imports cutouts, mesh and plate attributes from S3D.
  • Assign different reinforcement zones.
  • Design and optimize reinforcement.
  • Review moment and axial capacities, stress/strains, stress contours, and utility ratios.

SkyCiv KipCon testimonial
"The ease of use and the presentation of the results are both awesome.
I have had ongoing interaction with the support team and
everyone is excellent!"
Mitch Frumkin, CEO of Kipcon
SkyCiv TexasAM University Software Testomonial
It is used for various civil and mechanical engineering courses and the students
love it. We are happy with the continuous updates to SkyCiv as well,
highly recommended.
