Calculator Programs has several different modules for calculating the
most common steel detailing and checking problems. The modules are sold
together as one program.
Create bolt lists and bolt
Calculate the camber of a beam or
Add, subtract, multiply & divide
using the "FT.IISS" or decimal formats. View charts on bolt values, edge
distances and weld sizes, pipe dimensions, and dimensions for AISC shapes.
Solve right and oblique triangles.
Solve circles and arcs.
Design gusset plates.
Design connections in tension and
Design beam connections using clips,
shear end plates, seats, or wing plates.
Calculate end reaction, tension,
compression, moment, and web crippling.
The calculator can be used in the
FT.IISS, DECIMAL or METRIC mode. FT.IISS mode allows you to input in feet,
inches and sixteenths where FT = feet, II = inches, and SS = sixteenths.
Thus 25'-3 3/4'' = 25.0312. DECIMAL mode allows you to input in decimals.
METRIC mode allows you to input in milimeters. When in one mode the answer
is displayed for the other two modes. There are two memory registers and
three stack registers.
Valid operations in the Calculator are
addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, exponent, square root,
change sign, store, recall, 1/X, swap X and Y and trig functions.
The Calculator uses reverse polish
notation. To add 2 + 2 + 5 use these key strokes: 2 enter 2 + 5 +.
Convert decimal feet to FT.IISS or
Convert FT.IISS to decimal feet or
Convert metric to decimal feet or
View charts on bolt values, edge
distances and weld sizes, pipe dimensions, and dimensions for AISC shapes
in imperial and metric units.
Solve right triangles
Solve oblique triangles
There are two circle calculators. One
for FT.IISS and one for decimal units. Determine the radius, angle, chord,
height, arc length, and rise at an offset from one end of the arc. Enter 2
parameters and the others are calculated. "Lock" the radius and then enter
only one other parameter and the others are calculated.
There are two right triangle
calculators. One for FT.IISS and one for decimal units. Determine the base,
rise, slope, angle and bevel. Enter 2 parameters and the others are
calculated. "Lock" the angle and bevel and then enter only one side and the
other two are calculated.
Solve any oblique triangle. You must
know one of the three following conditions: 1 side and 2 angles, 2 sides and
1 angle, 3 sides. If you input 2 sides and 1 angle and the angle is not the
included angle there may be two solutions possible. If there are two
solutions the program will notify you that there are and you can switch back
and forth between the two solutions.
