Ftool is a program designed for instruction on the analysis of plane frame structures. It fulfills a need not often explored by educational programs that usually focus on analytical (numerical) techniques, or by the educational versions of commercial programs. The objective of Ftool is to motivate learning of structural behavior. Educational experiences in this area have shown that knowledge of structural behavior is essential for better understanding of the analytical methods learning process.
Ftool provides a simple analysis program that merges, in the same interface, resources for effective creation and manipulation of the model (pre-processing), linked to a fast and effective code for visualization of the results (post-processing).
* FTOOL download link provides freeware version of the software for Windows and Linux.
FRAME is a spreadsheet program written in MS-Excel for the purpose of plane frame analysis of portal and gable rigid plane frames subjected to various types of loading.
A Plane Frame Analysis for bending moments, axial and shears forces in a plane frame structure under point loads, UDL's, linearly varying distributed loads (soil pressures) and moments.
2D Frame Analysis is a powerfull application which uses optimized finite elements (beam elements) in order to perform static analysis of beams, frames and trusses.
