Design & Analysis Software:
PeerEngine uses a variety of structural analysis software tools from simplified SDOF and linear finite element, to advanced non-linear dynamic analysis software as well as proprietary cfs panelization software:
SteelSmart® System (SSS) provides PeerEngine with an essential tool engineered for both fast and accurate design, as well as presenting them with the budgeting necessary for light steel framing. Using SSS, PeerEngine engineers are able to design and detail members, connections, and fasteners for Curtain Wall, Load Bearing Wall, X-Brace Shear Wall, Roof Truss, Roof Joist, Floor Framing, and Moment-Resisting Short Wall. In addition SSS now allows for design against wind loads as well as the simple creation of construction drawings.
SteelSmart® Framer (SSF) provides PeerEngine with the ability to better design, estimate, and communicate light steel framing on projects using Autodesk® Revit® Building Information Modeling (BIM) software. Using SSF, PeerEngine engineers are able to utilize designs engineered in SSS to create a complete 3-D model with every stud, track, and connector to ensure estimates, panel drawings, and fabrication tickets are as accurate as possible.
Extreme Loading® for Structures Software (ELS), is an advanced non-linear structural analysis software tool designed specifically for structural engineers. Using ELS, PeerEngine engineers are able to study the 3-D behavior of structures through both the continuum and discrete stages of loading. This includes static and dynamic loads such as those generated by blast, seismic events, impact, progressive collapse, and wind.
