The Structural Tools/Spreadsheets have been broken down into the following catagories

• Aluminum
• Concrete
• Concrete Beam & 1-way Slab Spreadsheet - Calculates the allowable flexural capacity of a concrete beam or 1-way slab (you are allowed to either provide the amount of flexural steel in the beam/slab or the minimum steel will be assumed automatically).
• Concrete T-Beam Spreadsheet - Calculates the allowable flexural capacity of a concrete t-beam (you are allowed to either provide the amount of flexural steel in the beam/slab or the minimum steel will be assumed automatically).
• Seismic Design
• ASCE 7-05 Equivalent Lateral Force Procedure Spreadsheet - Calculates the Seismic Force using the Equivalent Lateral Force Procedure (see ASCE 7-05 §12.8) for buildings (Chapter 12) and Non-Buildings (Chapter 15). This is a very common method of calculating seismic forces for a variety of structural systems including bearing walls, shear walls, moment frames, etc.
• ASCE 7-05 Seismic Demands on Non Structural Components Spreadsheet - Calculates the Seismic Force using ASCE 7-05 §13.3 for non-structural components (e.g. Veneers, cabinets, signs, HVAC's, elevators, generators, piping, ductwork, cabletrays, etc.). This method assumes the component is less than 25% of the weight of the building. Also this analysis assumes that the component is accelerated by the building.
• Statics
• Steel
• Steel I-Shape Flexural Capacity Spreadsheet - Calculates the flexural strength of a Steel doubly symmetric beam (I-Beam, double channel, etc.). Solves for: yield, compact vs. non-compact, lateral torsional buckling, & flange local buckling.
• Wood
