SAISC launches the Connections eToolkit
Do you design steelwork connections?
Do you sometimes wish it was a simpler process?
The Connections eToolkit is a revolutionary digital design instrument created by the SAISC with the following characteristics and features:
An intuitive digital tool on your laptop, tablet ... and in time even your smart phone!
Selecting of SAISC standard connections from 5 major groups
Selecting member sizes from a full data base of sections
Selecting bolt diameters, numbers and the connecting plate
Calculating the capacity of the connection at the click of a button
Finding "the weak link in the connection" with your cursor
Checking the connection for combined loads from analysis
Opening a to-scale sketch of your connection with all stiffeners, dimensions and weld sizes specified, transferable to the construction drawings
Reviewing examples, discussions and commentaries relating to your design
Saving and printing a summary of the connection design and filing it in a logical paper or traceable electronic manner.
Promoting (and actually tutoring) sensible best practice.
Conveniently referencing and working in synergy with content from the SAISC's Handbook for Steelwork Connections (the 'Green Book') and relevant limit states. (It is not intended to replace these hard publications.)
