1. About & Disclaimer

    This design software calculates the design resistance of Universal Beams (Advance ® UKB), Universal Columns (Advance ® UKC) and Hollow Sections (both hot finished Celsius ® and cold formed Hybox ®), subject to axial compression. The design resistance is calculated in accordance with BS EN 1993-1-1 and the UK National Annex. The user must select the steel grade, member type, section type and buckling length.

    Although care has been taken to ensure that the calculated resistances are correct, users should verify the output. The Steel Construction Institute and other parties associated with this software and website assume no responsibilities for errors or misuse of this software, or damage arising from use of this software
