The A3C software allows the designer to perform the detailed verification of a single steel member or a composite steel-concrete column (partially encased or fully encased in concrete) according to the rules of the Eurocodes. A3C has been designed and developed by the cticm (Centre Technique Industriel de la Construction Métallique - France).
This software deals with uniform, simply supported or cantilever members (only for steel members). Members may be subjected to axial compression force, biaxial bending (axial force and/or bending moments about strong axis and week axis).
A3C may be used for working out technical solutions during preparatory engineering studies. Because of the complexity of the calculations involved, A3C is only for users who are able to make themselves an accurate idea of its possibilities, its limitations and adequacy to the various practical applications. The user is responsible for its use at his own risk.
