From EngiSSol: We challenge you to try out this frame analysis program, as there are other analysis programs out there, but you will convince yourself that Engissol Frame 2D is unique because of its features and the ease in using it. Use of highly flexible, general, finite element method. Static Analysis of Multi span beams, 2D Trusses and 2D Frames. Unlimited number of Nodes and Beams. 3 Degrees of freedom per Node, 6 per Beam. Compatibility with any consistent system of units. All type of boundary conditions (fixed, rollers). Bent support conditions with respect to the global coordinate system, e.g. roller at 30 degrees in Node #4.(Nodal constraints in all directions). Separate Coordinate System for each node. Rotational Springs. Unlimited number of translational around a node (direction and stiffness for each one). Consideration of any translational and rotational displacements of the support conditions. No need to define first Nodes and then Beams, Nodes are produced automatically Consideration of thermal loads. Ability to modify the beam material properties easily and fast. Static Load is given with respect to the global or local system of each beam or Node. Quick release 1 to 3 degrees of freedom at the starting or ending node of each beam in a user defined local coordinate system. Vertical and Horizontal Distribution Load on beams.
