Win | English | .rar | 5 mb

CAST utilizes a single interface for creation or modification of strut-and-tie models, truss analysis, selection of reinforcing steel, and capacity checks of the struts and nodes.

Graphical User Interface


Define D-Region boundaries graphically
Define strut-and-tie models graphically and numerically
Guidelines, grid points, and snap tools for accurate dimensioning
Toolbars and dialog boxes for defining common elements, such as the imposed loadings, material properties, supports, and bearing plates
Templates for common truss models
Standard drawing and editing features, such as cut, copy, paste, delete, undo, redo, move, find, glue, and unglue
Easy access to member information by mouse right button click
Display of structural model, including reinforcement positions, labels, and areas, in multiple windows with various zooming and panning options
Context sensitive online help

Analysis Types


Design calculations (evaluation of truss member forces and truss member dimensions)
Detailed analysis of nodal zones
Simple truss capacity prediction
Load-deformation analysis
Truss Solution
Truss analysis and stress check at command
Statically indeterminate trusses
Truss stability checked with warning messages
Illustration of member forces and identification of member characteristics for dimensioning
Pushover analysis per user-defined stress-strain relationships of struts and ties with options to use load-controlled or displacement-controlled

Multiple Load Cases and/or
Strut-and-tie Models



Organize multiple load cases and/or strut-and-tie models in one database
Present multiple load cases and/or strut-and-tie models in multiple windows

Truss Member Dimensioning

Manual or automatic selection of effective widths of struts
Single or multiple layers of tie reinforcement
Checks of bearing plate stresses
Quick check of the adequacy of strut-and-tie model components through color identification
Support explicitly ACI Code requirements
Output Features



Graphical and tabular output
