Posted on in MasonryUsing windposts, the lateral stability of a wall can be increased significantly against horizontal forces such as wind pressure or handrail loads. But designing of large masonry walls especially with openings can often be difficult.
Posted on in Composite designProperly bonded steel beam and concrete slab, acting compositely, can be much stronger and stiffer, which can result in significant savings in steel and/or structural floor depth. How can we provide the necessary shear connection between the two components and how is it designed?
Posted on in Composite designThanks to the many benefits of composite construction, this construction type has been dominating the multi-storey building sector for over twenty years. But how actually does composite construction work?
MasterSeries provides extensive in-built steel cross-section libraries and built-up and parametric cross-section creation possibilities to empower engineers to be able to create any kind of structural solution. But sometimes you need to import a new cross-section library or user-defined sections.

We know that sometimes all you need to do is a quick and easy beam design without the need for a robust 3D structural analysis software – with our upgraded Free Beam Designer you will deliver outstanding beam design with a detailed report.
Typically a four-bolt column base is usually considered to be a nominally pinned support in structural analysis. However, benefit can be taken from the stiffness of nominally pinned bases to reduce frame deflections and to reduce the effects of the deformed geometry.

The popularity of cellular beams has been rapidly increasing in recent decades for many building types. Beyond the aesthetic fashion for cellular beams, they have many advantages for a building project.
