Software for Design of Structural Concrete
Walls,Discontinuities and Box-shaped Structures
SPanCAD is shareware. So,
you can download and use it freely. The latest version of
SPanCAD is made in July 2001.
SPanCAD enables a
structural designer to draw a simple model of a concrete
structure or structural element, perform various analysis and
interpret the performance graphically. It can compute
deflections, force distributions, crack widths, ultimate loads
and ductility taking into account yielding of reinforcement and
cracking or crushing of concrete. In subsequent design cycles,
modifications can be easily made to shape, dimensions and
reinforcement. The program proposes dimensions and provides a
procedure for quick convergence of the design process.
In order to install SPanCAD
on your computer you need Windows 3.0 or higher and AutoCAD
version 13 or 14 or AutoCAD 2000 installed and configured.
SPanCAD uses only about 1.2 MB of your hard disk. Unfortunately,
SPanCAD runs only on English language versions of AutoCAD
