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.

2D frame
This application analyses a 2 dimensional frame under a set of member and node loads.
It produces member forces and deflections.

GWZR translates structural models between these proprietary structural analysis programs;

  • STAAD (Research Engineers)
  • ASAS (Century Dynamics)
  • SACS
