PocketStatics provides analysis features that allow the efficient analysis of almost any two-dimensional frame or truss.
Whether you need to analyze a single beam or column, multiple continuous beams, or a complex frame or truss, PocketStatics provides the capability to perform that analysis.
The user interface is very easy to use and very interactive and responsive which makes ideal for use in meetings, at construction sites, as well at your desk in addition to any other location. This allows you to quickly test ideas and document and analyze your structure whenever you want.
Analysis of 2D frames and trusses
Element distributed loads. Can be trapezoidal (non-uniform)
Node loads (forces and moments)
Element end moment releases
Define frame element properties (modulus of elasticity, area, moment of inertia)
Compute node deformations, reactions
Compute deformations, moments, shears, axial forces along element
Translational and rotational degrees of freedom can be individually fixed for each node.
Main User Interface Features
Highly intuitive interface which allows the use the Pocket PC stylus (PocketPC version) or mouse (Windows version) to easily and quickly sketch your structure
Unlimited Undo/Redo capability
Saving and opening of model files
Ability to share models between the PocketPC and Windows versions, just synchronize your file using ActiveSync!
Help system on both the PocketPC and Windows version
Immediate display of deformed shape, reactions, and moment, shear and axial force diagrams
Powerful zooming and panning capabilities
Detailed User Interface Features
Interactive definition of structure geometry, boundary condition and loads without having to type any values
Common boundary conditions (pin, roller, fixity) can be easily assigned through toolbar buttons
Further refinement of properties and load values can be easily accomplished using simple dialog boxes
Continuous analysis of the structure and display of results as you make modifications
Continuous feedback on the stability of the structure
Ability to show/hide:
Frame End Releases
Frame Distributed Loads
Display of deformed shape, moment diagram, shear diagram, axial force diagram and reactions
The program displays the exact deformed shape and force diagrams (moment, shear, axial):
The point with maximum or minimum deformation or force is highlighted
The value of the maximum deformation or force is also shown which makes it easy to obtain results very quickly.
Control what values will be shown on diagrams (you can refine how many values you see in order to optimize your view especially on smaller screens)
