2D structural concatenated beam models can be created and analyzed. There is an emphasis on quick and precise input of high-resolution data through graphical tap-and-drag interaction, with numeric input available as an alternative. Automatic concurrent analysis ensures that up-to-date results are conveniently available after every edit. Clear graphical representations of deflections and force envelopes are interactive with slider bars for reading off results at any point along the members.
A concatenated beam is one in which each end of each beam connects to no more than one other. By way of example this includes multi-span beams and simple portal frames, but not frames with ties or bracing nor multi-bay or multi-storey frames.
