Multiframe is intuitive, graphical software for the analysis and design of all types of framed structures.

Multiframe Structural Analysis Software is used by hundreds of engineering and construction companies (and Universities) around the world to model, analyse and design structures ranging from simple residential houses through to bridges, mining structures and high rise buildings.

Unlike traditional analysis systems, Multiframe features a completely graphical approach to modelling, analysing and designing structures. This provides a familiar and intuitive working enviroment resulting in greater design productivity, the ability to explore more design alternatives, and fewer modeling errors.

Multiframe conforms to Microsoft standards for all on-screen functions resulting in a system that is genuinely easy to use and consistent – even for infrequent users.

Multiframe’s unique automation technology allows you to create dynamic links between excel spreadsheets, Autocad drawings, and Multiframe models. This can be used both for generating structures and loads, and for post-analysis design checking and optimization.

The authors of Structures regard Multiframe so highly that a free CD is included with each book supplied! (Sixth Edition)

For courses in Structures or Structural Analysis and Design. With a focus on how structures really work, this book offers … expanded coverage in the areas of computer-aided analysis techniques, design of multi-story buildings, shell structures and cable supported beams. Reinforcing the real-world perspective of the text, each book contains Multiframe structural analysis software to engage students in sophisticated analysis and design activities.

Introduction to Multiframe Structural Analysis Software

Product Description / Key capabilities

Multiframe provides linear and non-linear analysis, static and dynamic options and buckling calculations. These analysis options are complemented by a full range of analysis-related modeling tools like master-slave, prescribed displacements, springs, thermal effects, offset members, additional masses and much more. Other modules allow you to draw section shapes and install them in the sections library and perform design checks for a range of design codes. Multiframe Automation allows you to prepare design calculations in Excel and link them directly with your Multiframe model. An ever expanding range of design add-ons also allows you to simplify steel code checking and optimization.

MULTIFRAME helps you redefine design excellence for any types of structures. Choose the version that fits your project needs:

MULTIFRAME:                 Linear analysis of frame and plate structures, non-linear analysis of frames, Section properties calculator, local steel code checks (AS4100, AS4600, NZS3404)

MULTIFRAME Advanced:  Mutiframe capabilities plus  dynamic modal analysis and time history analysis, International steel design codes (AIJ, ASD, LRFD, AISI, BS5950, EC3).

Multiframe and Multiframe Advanced are available as standalone products.

Or they are included with MAXSURF Naval Architecture software by Bentley.
