COST EFFICIENT – 3D SOLID ELEMENT – NONLINEAR DYNAMIC ANALYSIS
Extreme Loading® for Structures Software (ELS) is the ideal nonlinear dynamic structural analysis tool to study the behavior of cold-formed steel structures against seismic, wind, progressive collapse, and blast. In addition to standard structural elements, the tool allows the user to easily model light gauge steel studs & track, floor & roof systems, and X-braced shear walls in a fully volumetric 3D model without the need for outdated transition elements, providing significant improvements to the model and its results.
Cold-Formed Steel – Model any CFS shapes, like The Steel Network’s SG600™ SigmaStud®.
Composite Decking – Model composite metal deck, hollow core slabs, and poured in place concrete.
X-Braced Shear Walls – Model X-Braced Shear Walls along with their bolted connections.
It’s what’s on the inside that counts
