The Engineer's Toolkit
A compendium of some 20 applications compiled for use
by structural engineers in the offshore oil and gas industry.
It includes versions of 'AISC steel design' and '2D frame' that incorporate the requirements of
American Petroleum Institute (API) recommended practice RP-2A, both working stress (RP 2A-WSD) and Load and
Resistance Factor Design (RP 2A-LRFD).
The included version of '2D frame' also carries out code checks to AISC and API (ASD and LRFD).
Also included are applications for calculating and generating wave loads and for the analysis of ring
stiffener sections using the method of Roark.
This application analyses a 2 dimensional frame under a set of member and node loads.
It produces member forces and deflections.
