CCS has developed upon agreement with ArcelorMittal, the Trusses+ software for the pre-design of large span trusses according to EC3. The Windows and mobile software versions are freely distributed by ArcelorMittal’s site.
Trusses+ software is dedicated to the pre-design of large span trusses in conformity with the European rules for steel structures (EN1993-1-1:2005).
The software can be used as an automatic pre-design tool for:
– Verification: based on sections imposed by the user, Trusses+ checks the design criteria of each member of a truss (upper and lower chords, bracings).
– Optimization: from basic data supplied by the user (main geometry, lateral restraints and loadings), the software estimates the dimensions of the cross-section of elements of the structure.
