CSiCOL

DESIGN OF REINFORCED CONCRETE COLUMNS

CSiCol™ is a comprehensive software package for analyzing and designing concrete, reinforced concrete, and reinforced-concrete composite columns. CSiCol’s Quick Design Wizard provides access to all the forms needed during the column design process, making design simple, organized and efficient. The design can be completed in accordance with major international codes. Analysis and design are interactive.

DESIGN AND ANALYSIS CAPABILITIES

Import columns from ETABS along with their materials, sections, loads and framing.

CROSS-SECTION GENERATION

Start from any of the predefined parametric shapes, including a variety of solid, hollow, and flanged shapes. Select from a large selection of standard steel shapes. Draw your own shapes, or create new shapes with merge and subtract operations.

Cross Sections

Import shapes from text files and .DXF files

GENERATED RESULTS AND REPORTS

Plot multiple P-M or M-M curves in the same graph with varying values for either Compressive Strength of Concrete (fc’), Steel Tensile Strength (fy), or rebar sizes.

P-M Curves

Generate a one-page report containing details such as section and material properties, rebar details, and the governing load combination for each of the columns in the project.
