Section Profile Calculation Software

With Sectionwizard you can quickly and accurately calculate section properties and retrieve stress values for all of your custom and assembled shapes, within the familiar STAAD.Pro interface. Save time by quickly building sections using custom profiles, standard libraries, parametrically defined sections, or imported shapes with metric or imperial unit systems. You can easily calculate elastic and plastic section properties of custom and built-up shapes, including area, moment of inertia, plastic and section moduli, torsional and warping constants, and many more. Quickly visualize and compare stress values at any point of a cross section using axial forces and moments on your shape profile to verify the adequacy of your section.

  • Analyze gravity and lateral load

    • Design and analyze simple or complex structures for a wide range of loading conditions, including those induced by gravity such as dead and live loads, including skip conditions, in combination with lateral loads including wind and seismic.

  • Comply with seismic requirements

    • Design and detail seismic force-resisting systems, generating seismic loads according to the relevant building code. Consider these forces in the design of elements and, where applicable, the design of frames and the larger structural system. Enforce the ductility requirements of the selected design code in element proportioning and detailing.

  • Design and analyze structural models

    • Quickly model your entire structure, including decks, slabs, slab edges and openings, beams, columns, walls, braces, spread and continuous footings, and pile caps. Efficiently automate many of your time-consuming design and analysis tasks and produce practical system and component designs that are document ready.

  • Generate design loads and load combinations

    • Apply code-prescribed wind and seismic loads to the structure using built-in load generators. Calculate relevant loading parameters automatically based on the structural geometry, mass, and selected building code provisions without the need for separate hand calculations. Combine these lateral load cases with gravity and other types of loads using load combination generators.

  • Import section shapes created in DXF

    • Quickly import metric or imperial custom-defined section profiles detailed in DXF drawings. Alternatively define regular shapes with simple key dimensions or pick from a range of standard libraries.

  • Produce section property reports

    • Quickly calculate section properties and easily produce detailed reports on your custom section profiles.

  • Share structural models

    • Transfer structural model geometry and design results from one application to another and synchronize changes over time. Quickly share the structural model, drawings, and information with the entire team for review.

  • Utilize international section profiles

    • Complete your structural model using a vast array of international section profile databases, which are included at no extra charge. Take advantage of global design opportunities around the world.
