How Limcon Can Help You Design Steel Connections Faster and Easier
Steel connection design is a crucial aspect of any structural engineering project. It involves checking the strength, stability, and safety of the joints between steel members, such as beams, columns, braces, and plates. Steel connection design can be complex and time-consuming, especially when dealing with different codes, standards, and connection types.
That’s why you need a software tool that can help you design and verify steel connections quickly and accurately. Limcon is a productivity-geared steel connection design software that can handle virtually any connection type and limit state. Whether you need to design shear and moment connections, member splices, brace end connections, base plates, or hollow section connections, Limcon can do it for you.
Limcon is based on a library of standard connection templates that cover a wide range of international standards, such as AISC, AS/NZS, BS EN, CSA S16, GB 50017, IS 800, and more. You can choose from over 200 connection types and customize them to suit your project specifications. Limcon will perform all the necessary calculations and checks for you and provide you with a concise summary of the results. You can also output your connection designs to CAD format directly from Limcon for further detailing and documentation.
