Compos is a unique composite beam design software program. No other software enables users to analyse the effects of using the damping systems on composite floors.
From handling variable slab widths and thicknesses to calculating the response factor from footfall-induced vibration (composite beam footfall), Compos is a powerful tool. The program handles tapering plate girders easily, as well as web penetrations and notches, with or without stiffeners. With the additional benefit of being able to analyse the effects of damping systems, Compos is used by many engineers looking for the complete composite beam analysis software offering.
With Compos, users can design to ultimate and serviceability limit states, such as vibration frequency, deflection, beam weight and depth. Beams can be linked together, so that secondary beams load primary ones. The software does everything an engineer needs to analyse and design composite steel beams at construction and final stages — including automatically selecting beams and studs.
