S-STEEL Design
Quick-Start Guide

1.0 First Steps


S-STEEL is S-FRAME Software’s steel design program. S-STEEL is not standalone and requires S-FRAME for the
analysis results. With S-STEEL you can perform a Code check or Automatic design to steel structures
according to a number of different International Design codes;

· AISC 360-10 & 360-05 LRFD/ASD · CSA-S16-2001, 2009, and 2014


· AISC ASD 89 · CSA-S16.1-M94
· AISC LRFD 94 · EC3:2005 (Singapore & UK Annex)
· BS 5950:1990 & 2000 · AS 4100-1998
· NZS 3404:1997. · SUOS – 05 and 11

Figure 1. Design Codes

The design codes are specified in S-FRAME by going to the Design Code tab of the Preferences dialog
(SettingsàPreferencesàDesign Code tab). Within this tab, you can specify the Building Code, the
Concrete Design Code, the Steel Database and the Steel Design Code to be used in the design process.

Figure 2. Design Codes Tab

Launch S-STEEL from within S-FRAME by selecting RunàS-STEEL or clicking the Build Steel Design Model
shortcut.

Figure 3. Launch S-STEEL

A model must already be open and analyzed in S-FRAME Analysis to access S-STEEL. If you
want, you can open Part 1.TEL (C:/Users/Public/Documents/S-FRAME Software/S-
FRAME/Tutorials/PART 1.TEL) to practice Part1 of this guide.

2016/10/20 © Copyright 1992-2016 by S-FRAME® Software Inc. 3


The Steel Database and the Design Code can
also be edited in S-STEEL, by going to
OptionsàDesign Code.

Figure 4. Design Code dialog box

A tutorial video demonstrating these features is available in our Online Resources (HelpàOnline
ResourcesàS-STEEL Design Videos, Tutorial 01 – S-STEEL Overview).

2.0 The S-STEEL Graphical User Interface


The S-STEEL graphical user interface is quite similar to S-FRAME’s. It has a Command bar, Combo bar, Data
bar, Shortcuts bar, Structure bar, Status bar and Aerial window.
There are five Views in S-STEEL

1. CODE INPUT– Graphical view for inputting steel properties (steel grades, length factors,…) used
during a code check process.

2. CODE RESULTS – Graphical view showing code check results (utilization ratios, …)

3. DESIGN INPUT – Graphical view for inputting criteria (sections, steel grades, …) used during an
automated design process.

4. DESIGN RESULTS – Graphical view showing design results (sections, utilization ratios, …)

5. STEEL SPREADSHEET – Spreadsheet view showing input data and results.

Figure 5. The S-STEEL Graphical User Interface

Navigating in the graphical Model Space


S-STEEL’s navigation options are the same with S-FRAME’s. Please refer to chapter 2 of S-FRAME’s Quick Start
Guide.

Selection and mouse pick operations


Similar to S-FRAME, the selection tool in S-STEEL provides multiple ways to select or unselect objects in the
viewport. This tool is also common to all graphical windows. Note also the existence of the Select Special
dialog, which you can access from any graphical window in S-STEEL.

Figure 6. Selection options in S-STEEL

The Selected (active) and the Unselected (inactive) objects are indicated by solid lines and filled circles, and
dashed lines and unfilled circles respectively. In addition to S-FRAME, S-STEEL displays the defined sections’
shape wire frame.

2016/10/20 © Copyright 1992-2016 by S-FRAME® Software Inc. 5


S-STEEL Design
Quick-Start Guide

Figure 7. Selected Unselected Objects in S-STEEL

If a member cannot be selected but is displayed with a black dashed line, then S-STEEL does not
recognize that members’ section. S-STEEL does allow users to import custom sections. For more
details, please review the following topic ‘Append the AISC or CISC steel table’ in our Help
System, and the ‘Tutorial 07 - Importing Custom Sections Databases in S-STEEL’ in our Online
Resources.

You can also display or hide additional information such as the Group names, Effective lengths,
Steel Grades, etc., by selecting the appropriate option in the View Design Model dialog box.

S-STEEL Design
Quick-Start Guide

3.0 Code Input Window


Once you have selected a steel table and design code, your next task is to specify the structure’s design
model (the input required to code check members)
The input information and its associated tool are shown below;

Effective Length Factors

Steel Grades

Connection Type

Bending Coefficients

Cost Factors

Negligible Forces and other constraints

Deflection Criteria

Figure 9. Code Input Tools

The Code Check Input window provides two additional dialogs not available in the Design Input window.
For non-UK codes, you can specify a back-to-back gap for double angle members. For non-USA codes, you
specify hot rolled vs. cold formed for hollow sections. In the Design Input window, you can enter this data
via the Design Sections for Study tool, but the data applies only to the design process, whereas the Code
Check Input dialog data applies only to the code check process.

Run a code check


From this window, you can code check the selected members for selected Load Cases, by going to
RunàCode Check or by clicking the Run shortcut.

Figure 10. Run Code Check command

4.0 Code Results Window


After a code check process this graphical window becomes active and displays one of the following:
· Pass/Fail status of selected code checked members
· Colour coded utilization ratios (with legend) for selected code checked members
· Colour coded utilization ratios and ratios as numerals for selected code checked members
· Governing members
· Sections + Studs + Camber

A tutorial video demonstrating these features is available in our Online Resources (HelpàOnline
ResourcesàS-STEEL Design Videos, Tutorial 02 – Code Checking Steel Members).

5.0 Design Input Window


This graphical window lets you define and view S-STEEL's design model and design criteria. Where the same
tool occurs in the Shortcuts bar for both graphical input windows, the data is shared.
In this window only, you can define a group of members and assign to it a specific section shape, type, and
sections for study.

Design Sections for Study tool


Length Factors tool
Steel Grades tool
Connection Type tool
Bending coefficients tool
Member Cost Factors tool
Design Constraints tool
Deflection Criteria tool

Figure 14. Design Input Tools

Both the graphical input windows allow you to assign cost values to sections in a steel table via the Section
Costs dialog.
Once you define the design criteria that meets your requirements, an automated design can be performed
through the run menu (RunàDesign) or by clicking the Run shortcut.

Note the presence of the Iterative Design. You can find useful information on this topic, in S-
STEEL’s Help System (Help à Contents à ‘Search Tab’ ) under the ‘Run Design/Analysis
Iterations’ and the ‘Iterative design’ topics.

6.0 Design Results Window


Similar to the Code Results window, this graphical window displays design results (optionally) along selected
members or all members. From this window, you can override a group's proposed section and rerun an
analysis.
Design results (proposed sections and their utilization ratios) are displayed graphically:

S-STEEL Design
Quick-Start Guide

Using Scratch-Pad to refine a member


You can also launch Scratch-Pad. Scratch-Pad allows you to code check or design alternate, "what-if?"
scenarios independently of S-STEEL. You can use Scratch Pad to study members from the S-FRAME structure,
or you can study hypothetical scenarios where you enter the forces, factors, and lengths manually. Scratch
Pad allows you to divide an S-FRAME member into smaller segments whereby Scratch Pad calculates forces
and coefficients (related to stability checks) for that particular segment rather than the entire member. If you
design a member in Scratch Pad, you can assign an admissible section to the member for re-analysis.

You can find useful information for Scratch-Pad in S-STEEL’s help system under the topic
‘Introduction to Scratch Pad’. A tutorial video is also available: ‘Tutorial 04 – Using Scratch Pad
to refine a design or code check a given member’.

7.0 Steel Spreadsheet Window


Similar to S-FRAME, in S-STEEL input information and results can be viewed in a spreadsheet view. You can
sort the displayed information by selecting the appropriate options in the Members and View list boxes.

Figure 19. Short information in Spreadsheets

The Members (list box), provides the following exclusive choices:


· All
· Selected (4 choices, one per graphical window)
· Governing each group (2 choices, one each for Code Check and Design)
The View (list box), provides the following exclusive choices:
· Code Details (2 choices, one each for Code Check and Design)
· Member Data
· Quantities (2 choices, one each for Code Check and Design)
· Summaries (2 choices, one each for Code Check and Design)

A tutorial video demonstrating these features is available in our Online Resources HelpàOnline
ResourcesàS-STEEL Design Videos, ‘Tutorial 05 - Displaying S-STEEL Results’.

S-STEEL Design
Quick-Start Guide

8.0 Example
In this example, we perform a code check and design to an industrial building. We will focus on the design
process only. Creating the model is covered in our S-FRAME Analysis R11 Quick-Start Guide. We
recommend you read this guide before the S-STEEL Quick-Start Guide.

1. Open ‘’PART1.TEL’’ (C:/Users/Public/Documents/S-FRAME Software/S-RAME/Tutorials/PART 1.TEL.)


2. Note the analysis model details in the Geometry window:
a. 1-storey braced portal frame
b. Beams – W21x147 and S6x17.25 section
c. Column – W10x49 section
d. Braces – 2L6x6x1 section

Example Figure 1.

3. In the Loads window, five load cases are defined for dead, live, snow, wind and crane loads.

Example Figure 2.

2016/10/20 © Copyright 1992-2016 by S-FRAME® Software Inc. 13


S-STEEL Design
Quick-Start Guide

Switch to ON the display loads switches in the status bar below, and review the defined loads.

Example Figure 3.

4. Select Settings à Preferences à Design Codes and from the drop-down list, choose a Steel
Database and Steel Design Code. In this example, choose AISC 2011 US and AISC 360-10 ASD,
respectively.

Example Figure 4.

5. Run -> Analysis and select “Linear Static” for Analysis type Options.
6. After the analysis phase, the results (member forces, displacements, etc.) can be viewed graphically
and numerically in the Graphical and Numerical Results windows respectively. Briefly, check your
results. Alternatively, Force Diagrams for each member can also be viewed in ISD or Scratch-Pad.
We will look more into this later.
7. After validating the results, we can proceed to the design process. Select Runà S-STEEL or click on
‘Build Steel Design Model’ shortcut from the top bar.

2016/10/20 © Copyright 1992-2016 by S-FRAME® Software Inc. 14


S-STEEL Design
Quick-Start Guide

Example Figure 5.

8. Note that S-FRAME’s Graphical User Interface is replaced by S-STEEL’s, and we are now in the Code
Input Window. Similar to S-FRAME, in S-STEEL changes are applied to active members only. Select
All, and right click on the ‘Edit Length Factors’ tool. This tool allows you to define the following
member data:
a. Unsupported flange lengths (top and bottom flange) for steel members.
b. Effective length factors (strong and weak)

Example Figure 6.

In this example, we use S-STEEL to calculate the unsupported flange lengths and use the entire
length of the members for compression capacity checks. Click OK to apply the changes.
9. Right-click on the Steel Grades tool to bring up the associated dialog. The names of the GUI
controls differ between codes, but generally, the approach is as follows:
a. Select a steel type or grade, which alters the available yield strengths and tensile strengths.
b. Select a yield strength or enter a value of your own.
c. Select a tensile strength or enter a value of your own. [Applies to non-UK codes.]

2016/10/20 © Copyright 1992-2016 by S-FRAME® Software Inc. 15


S-STEEL Design
Quick-Start Guide

Example Figure 7.

We use the A992 High-strength Low-alloy with a yield strength of 50Ksi and tensile strength of 65Ksi
in this example. Click OK to accept the changes.
10. Right click on the Connection Type tool; This Input tool allows you to declare whether the ends of
the steel member are welded or bolted. If you choose welded, S-STEEL sets the Anet/Agross = 1.0.

Example Figure 8.

11. Right-click on the Bending Coefficients tool. This tool allows you to determine whether to
calculate a member's bending coefficients, or whether to set them = 1.0. Set S-STEEL to calculate
the bending coefficients for us. S-STEEL calculates the Bending coefficients based on the moment
profile of the continuous member.

Example Figure 9.

12. Once you are finished with the input parameters, click on the Run shortcut to run a code check

2016/10/20 © Copyright 1992-2016 by S-FRAME® Software Inc. 16

14. The next step is to perform a design to our structure, as some of the members failed during the
code check process. Switch to the design input window, and note that in addition to the code input
tools, we have an additional tool where we can specify sections for study. The sections can be
sorted by:
a. Section Shapes
b. Section Type
c. Section Name
d. Min/Max section properties
