Automatic transfer of all structurally relevant geometric values.
Load distribution from rafters or purlins as area or point loads.
Structural dimensioning for different timber grades and standardised steel profiles.
Structural calculation of ridges and valleys. Indication of the structurally relevant cross-sections.
Modern architecture with open living area design often leads to large spans of the ceiling. In combination with additional structural point and area loads, there are high demands on the correct ceiling design and structural design.
Structural dimensioning of continuous beams with or without cantilever.
Load distribution from posts of the roof or adding of further load application areas by drag&drop.
Constructive design solutions of structural "problem areas" with main beams or additional steel profiles.
Fully automatic structural calculation of ceilings. All ceiling components are dimensioned in one calculation process.
Trusses have a long tradition in timber construction. In the different countries, trusses are used for roof constructions in houses and/or for larger buildings with few columns and wide spans.
Simple and fast design of studio, triangular and framework trusses with integrated auto dimensioning of the truss geometry.
Struts and booms are placed according to individual parameters in the truss and then calculated according to the shape of the roof.
All truss elements can be connected with traditional timber connections or with steel fasteners and brackets.
The new SEMA "3D Strut-and-Node Model" follows the 3D design approach of the SEMA software with a three-dimensional analysis of structurally relevant axes models for the export to 3D structural programs.
All structurally relevant axes are projected/displayed in the appropriate planes.
Structural nodes between individual components are displayed and can be modified or summarized in 3D.
Transfer of the entire 3D strut-and-node model to specialised structural software for structural dimensioning of the overall building, also for earthquake-proof construction.
To Meet Every Challenge
This is as easy as it gets: Timber and steel components can be analysed directly during the design stage - whether it is in Ground Plan or in 3D - and then be optionally transferred to the FRILO structural analysis software. All geometric data, component dimensions and material codes are automatically taken into account.
The company Friedrich + Lochner, with their main office in Stuttgart, Germany, has been developing calculation programs for structural analysis for 30 years. The new generation of standards with semi-probalistic safety concepts is quite a challenge for construction engineers as well as for software developers. FRILO has therefore extended and enhanced its existing programs and also developed new programs to meet this challenge.
Depending on the project and its location, the latest applicable standards are always used for calculations. With the constant adaption and enhancements of our modules and the close cooperation with Friedrich + Lochner we make sure you always work with the most up-to-date standards.
