AISC 360-10 & AISC 360-16 Steel Design Software

SkyCiv Engineering offers steel design and analysis software for AISC 360-10 and AISC 360-16 specifications, allowing you to design, analyse and test your steel structures. It's also fully integrated with SkyCiv Structural Design and Analysis Software, you can directly load design codes inside of the program, and directly load design codes from the platform.

This AISC 360 steel design software comes with two versions: Standalone (free) and Integrated (built-in with Structural 3D). Available features:

  • W-Shapes, HSS Shapes (RHS, SHS, CHS), Channels and Angles
  • Bending, Shear, Axial Checks - Capacity and Ratios
  • Combined, Slenderness and Deflection Capacity and Ratios
  • Summary + Full AISC 360 Design Calculation Reporting
  • View Capacity Results on Model (Integrated Version)
  • Import and Apply Multiple Load Combinations (Integrated Version)
  • Fully verified with third party results
  • View full documentation for our AISC 360 Design Software
  • Review an example walk-through of how to design a moment connection frame using AISC 360-10

Optimize and Select the Lightest AISC 360 Design

The SkyCiv Design module, also lets you calculate the lightest section that passes the AISC design requirements. With a single click, you can test all the sections of the library to find the most efficient design to reduce material use and save your clients money. Have some design limitations? The Optimizer allows you to filter sections by depth, width and even names, to find the exact section suitable for your needs.

Single Click AISC 360 Design, integrated with SkyCiv Structural 3D

Still using AISC steel design spreadsheets? To make the job easier, SkyCiv has powerful Structural Analysis software that is completely integrated with AISC 360 for ASD and LRFD. Build your model, import ASCE load combinations, run the analysis and with a click of a button run an AISC 360 design check. Work quickly and easily by having your analysis and design completely integrated in one workflow.
