CASA Plane Frame 2D

Structural / Civil Engineering App for static elastic analysis of 2D plane-frames.

With CASA PF-2D an engineer can create 2D structural models of plane-frames and obtain both the numerical results and graphical representation of the deflections and forces. There is an emphasis on quick and precise modelling with graphical interaction. Results are graphically interactive with a sliding readout of numerical results at any point along a member.

More information about this App can be found in its integrated help and on our website. The App also contains "Replay Demonstrations" which describe and enact its use.
