PROKON FRAME

Precise analysis of structural frames and components

Prokon Frame Analysis software conducts precise frame and finite element analyses for both 2D and 3D structures. It offers a wide range of analyses, including static, buckling, modal, harmonic, and seismic. With an intuitive interface, users easily build models using beams, shells, and solid finite elements. Results seamlessly integrate with other Prokon modules and other software by way of DXF, DWG, CIS/2 and SNF (Strucad) files for further design tasks and documentation. Frame models can also be exported to and imported from Autodesk® Revit® using Prodesk.

FRAME USE CASE

Challenge

XYZ Engineering Ltd. needed to design and analyze a steel frame for an industrial warehouse. The objective was to ensure the structure could safely support heavy loads from machinery and storage while complying with local building codes and regulations. The project required precise structural analysis, including load distribution, stress analysis, and deformation analysis, with detailed documentation to support the design and approval process.

Solution

The engineering team utilised Prokon Frame to begin the project by importing the architectural layout of the warehouse and defining the frame geometry. Using Prokon Frame’s modelling tools, they created a detailed 3D model and assigned appropriate material properties to the steel members. They input various load types such as dead loads, live loads, and dynamic loads from operating machinery. 

The team conducted static and dynamic analyses to determine internal forces, moments, and potential deflections. Prokon’s design modules were then used to design and optimize the steel frame elements, ensuring they met local building codes and safety standards. Comprehensive reports and construction drawings were generated to document the design process.

Results

The industrial warehouse’s steel frame design was completed successfully, featuring a robust and efficient structural framework that optimized material usage and ensured safety. The project met all local building regulations, and the detailed analysis and design reports facilitated quick approval from regulatory bodies. XYZ Engineering Ltd. benefited from the streamlined design process provided by Prokon Frame, resulting in significant time and cost savings. The client was highly satisfied with the reliable and compliant structural solution, which ensured the warehouse could support the heavy operational loads safely.
