Design of Steel Structures

Design of Steel Structures


PORTAL is a software to be used for the Design of Steel Structures. It has been developed by CTICM (Centre Technique Industriel de la Construction Metallique - France) in the frame of an european research project partially funded by the European Community for Steel and Coal (ECSC Project No 7210-SA326 : "Modelling and Pre-design of Steel and Composite Structures" - 1996-1999). PORTAL performs the checks or automatically pre-designs single bay steel portal frames according to Eurocodes (ENV 1993-1-1 for resistance checks). 
The graphic user interface is very friendly and intuitive. Because of some simplifying assumptions, this software is to be considered like an aid for the designer to quickly get a set of profiles and an estimation of the frame weight. Detailed results are however provided in order to let the user know if complementary checks are necessary.
