- Latest AISC v14.1 & v14.1-SI

Version 9.2

Most common sections according to BS EN 1993-1-1:2005 / BS 4-1:2005

Properties can be displayed in either their original units (English for AISC libraries, Metric for Canadian and UK) or converted to the opposite system with the click of a button. Even fractional values from AISC (the detailing properties) are converted to metric values (in numeric form)

[steel hd] allows sorting of the sections within a library given a specific property. Note that trying if the sort criteria does not apply to a specific library (i.e.: plastic modulus for ASD) or is not available for a specific section type (i.e.: IY for 2L sections in AISC libraries), that library / type will be sorted by the Default order, all other sections type for which the sorting criteria applies will be arranged properly (the actual sort value is alway displayed below the designation)

[steel hd] lets you find a section with a quick search function, where, for example, "W16 x 89", "W16x89" or simply "W1689" will locate the same section or its closest approximation.
