spSlab analyzes beams, one-way slab systems (including standard and wide module joist systems), and two-way slab systems (including waffle and slab bands). With capacity to integrate up to 20 spans and two cantilevers of multiple floor system types in each model, the capabilities of spSlab are not limited to new designs. spSlab can perform strength investigation for evaluation and/or modifications of existing building slabs. This program is sure to save engineers time crosschecking designs with applicable design code provisions.
Save in both material and labor using the moment redistribution feature. It allows up to 20% reduction of negative moments over supports reducing reinforcement congestions in these areas.
spSlab also incorporates torsion into shear design and investigation of beam systems. Shear capacity including torsion is represented in terms of required and provided area of transverse and longitudinal reinforcement.
As a limited edition of spSlab, spBeam features torsion effects in the shear design and investigation allowing engineers to achieve more economical cross sections where coupled shear and torsion occur (in accordance with US and Canadian codes). Save more in both material and labor with the moment redistribution feature. It allows up to 20% reduction of negative moments over supports reducing reinforcement congestions in these areas.
spBeam performs a complete design for flexure and shear, and outputs resulting reinforcement schedules (including bar numbers, sizes, lengths, and spacing). Torsional effects and moment redistribution can be considered. spBeam offers a great deal of flexibility by allowing the user to modify the reinforcement configuration proposed by the program by switching from Design to Investigation mode. In the Investigation mode, the longitudinal and transverse reinforcement capacities of the entire system are computed for a given reinforcement
