Aluminum Structural Analysis and Design

GSE Aluminum - Advanced Structural Engineering Software

Integrated within the GSE (General Structural Engineering) software, GSE Aluminum Structural Analysis and Design is the industry standard for the design and verification of aluminum structures of any type. The unmatched graphical user interface of the GSE software allows to create, analyze and design large and complex models quickly and easily.

The GSE Aluminum program allows to design according to the American code 2020 Edition of the Aluminum Design Manual published by the Aluminum Association (AA ADM-2020) and the Canadian CAN/CSA S157 design code.

Increase productivity using a Hybrid Solution

The GSE General Structural Engineering software offers the possibility to run multiple material design simultaneously. The program is specifically built to suit your workflow and optimize design time. With both graphical and numerical table definition of structures, you can design and complete projects faster than ever.

The GSE Aluminum software supports the following design codes:
American AA ADM-2020 (ASD and LRFD)
American AA ADM-2015 (ASD and LRFD)
Canadian CSA S157

Standard shapes and parametric shapes (over 30 shapes available) including angles and polygonal tubes are supported.
All parameters required to calculate the resistance of the elements such as unbraced lengths, buckling lengths, buckling factors, welding, slenderness limit and others can be customized either graphically or from spreadsheets.
Several design parameters can also be calculated by the program.
Comprehensive library of standard aluminum grades.
The Redesign feature allows to test different solutions without requiring to run the analysis each time.
Technical Features

Aluminum verification includes sections classification, resistance and stability checks according to the applicable standard.
The GSE Aluminum allows to perform verifications such as:
Torsion and warping

Calculation of combined resistance of aluminum elements based on the results of a linear, P-Delta, non-linear, seismic or dynamic analysis.
Complete check of deflection according to a comprehensive set of criterions.
Limit states (unity checks) can be displayed graphically on the 3D model by means of colors or numerically in spreadsheets and reports.
All intermediate results required to verify the calculations are provided in spreadsheets

The welds have an important influence on the resistance of aluminum elements.
The program distinguishes two types of welds which are end welds and in-span welds.
Each of these types of welds may be full (affecting the entire cross section) or partial (affecting a portion of the cross section).
In the case of partial welds, the ratio of welded area for each flat segment must be specified.
Partial weld ratios on each segment are used in the calculation of the critical local buckling stresses of flat and curved segments in compression.
