Released 11-Mar-2022

Release Notes



The CSA A23.3-19 code has been added for concrete frame design.

The CSA S16-19 code has been added for steel frame design.


Concrete shell design per Eurocode 1992-1-1:2004 has been enhanced, including the ability to set design preferences and national annexes, improved iteration for determining the optimum amount of reinforcement, handling of variable-thickness shells, and the presentation of detailed results in tabular form.



Time-dependent behavior of concrete has been added for the AS3600-2018 code, including creep, shrinkage, and age-dependent stiffness.


The ability to enable/disabled the coupling between major bending, shear V2, and torsion is now available for channel and general sections.

23.3.0 | 23.3.1

Released 24-Sep-2021

Release Notes



Aluminum frame design has been added according to Eurocode 9.


Released 19-May-2021

Release Notes



Performance has been improved for models with frame elements in the presence of many load patterns. This includes speed increases in stiffness formation, event determination, and state-update operations. Nonlinear static, staged-construction, and nonlinear direct-integration time-history load cases will benefit the most.


The consistency of analysis results has been improved on Intel and AMD CPUs with an AVX2 instruction set, which includes most CPUs released in 2015 or later. This only affects sensitive or poorly conditioned models.



Aluminum frame design has been added according to the US 2020 Aluminum Design Manual. 

Database Tables


Performance improvements, by means of multi-threading, have been made for the recovery of results for frame hinge response tables.
