LIMCON
Powerful Steel Connection Design Software



Limcon is productivity-geared steel connection design software. Connection types include beam to column, brace end, member splices, anchorage to concrete, and complicated multi-member joints. By using a library of standard connection types, designers can quickly arrive at results. Design calculations and CAD drawings can be produced directly within the software.

Comprehensive Connection Types
Limcon supports a wide range of connection types, including shear and moment connections, member splices, brace end connections, base plates, hollow section connections, and stiffeners. Design considerations include steel member sizes, plate dimensions and grade, bolting configuration, and weld details. Section properties are extracted from a library file containing standard steel sections. Section libraries are available for countries including Australia, U.K., U.S., Japan, China, and New Zealand. Users can edit libraries or create custom library content using the Section Library Manager.

Interactive Design
All connection information is shown on screen in the style of a connection engineering drawing, allowing for easy review of the design information. Connections can be proportioned automatically based on input loads and governing code provisions. Users can easily override the program selected design at any time by specifying specific connection details, including member sizes, plates, and bolts.

Reporting Results
Limcon produces concise calculation summaries, reporting results for all relevant limit states. Connection drawings can be produced in CAD format directly from the design environment. A navigable 3D view of the as-designed connection geometry can be reviewed.
