Design of Metal Structures from Thin-walled Cold Rolled Sections
Cold Formed Design
The add-on Cold-Formed includes the design of steel structures from thin-walled cold-rolled sections based on EC3 and the corresponding national attachments.
The additional tool (add-on) Cold-Formed refers to the design of thin-wall cold-formed steel structures created according to EC3 and the national annexes. In the designing procedure all types of structural elements are included, not only the simplified method of chapter 10 for the pulrins.
It also includes, extended library of sections and materials, the bill of materials as well as, the production of the full report of the project.
Prerequisites: SCADA Pro Steel
Design – EC3 part 1-3
Design of steel structures and their connections according to EC3.
SCADA Pro performs all the checks referred in EC3-1-3 for the design of cold-formed steel structures. Different types of steel structures may be modelled such as industrial structures, canopies etc.
The ideal cross-section with the influence of rounded corner taken into account is computed as well as the effective cross-section under Axial/Bending load (EN1993-1-3 & EN1993-1-5).
Cross-section resistance checks are performed:
Bending and tension
Bending and compression

Bending, axial force and shear
Members resistance checks are performed:
Flexural buckling under axial load
Torsional buckling under axial load
Torsional-Flexural buckling under axial load
Torsional-Flexural buckling under bending load
Combined buckling and compression
Combined buckling and tension
Serviceability checks are performed:
The critical length can be computed automatically or can be defined by the user in terms of actual values or coefficients.
Accurate estimation of the bill of materials.
SCADA Pro produces the quantities of all the materials of a project in a well-organized tabular form.
For steel structures, the bill of materials is available per floor, per member’s section or per type of structural member (columns, beams, girders, purlins, bracing etc.).

Report of the project
User friendly interface for the creation and editing of the report.
In SCADA Pro the user simply selects the sections to be included in the report of the project.
