Software

Anstar has developed dimensioning software for designing the load-bearing frames of buildings. The software applications are used to specify the resistance and utilisation rates of the frame connections with Anstar products.  

  • The software has been designed for easy use and illustrative presentation.
  • The dimensioning of the structure is illustrated using colour graphics, showing the resistance of the structure and connection pieces as well as the utilisation rates and whether they are exceeded.
  • The software dimensions the connection according to the latest European standards.
  • The software performs the calculation for the erection stage, final stage and accident situations.
  • The software produces strength calculation materials for building control.
  • The user interface and printing language options are Finnish, Swedish and English.
  • The software can be used on Windows 7, 8 and 10.
  • The use of the software applications is facilitated by the product-specific design instructions available on the website.
  For structural design, Anstar has made Revit blocks, ACAD blocks and Tekla Structures components for its products, enabling the flexible use of Anstar products in the design work.

ACOLUMN 5.0

The ACOLUMN software is used to design column shoe/anchor bolt connections for concrete elements. The software is used for designing the following types of element connections:

  • Element column coupler and foundation connections Rectangular and round columns
  • Shear wall coupler and foundation connections
  • Moment stiff beam-to-column connections

    ASTEEL 2.3

    The ASTEEL software is used for designing following connections:

    •  Bolt connections between steel column and concrete
    • Anchor plates
    • ADE® and ADK® bracing connections for concrete columns

    Revision 20.11.2020
    FEM calculation of base plate has been improved, which means better resistance values.

    Revision 11.12.2020
    Fixed an issue in version 2.1 when creating an element model.

    Revision 28.02.2021
    Performance of the element model has been improved in the calculation of normal force and bending moment capacity.

      ABEAM 4.10

      The ABEAM software is used for preliminary design of A-BEAM S®- and W®-type composite beams in hollow-core slab floors for design-and-build deal reference plans.

      • The software calculates the preliminary dimensions for composite beams based on the loads.
      • The software uses the A-BEAM W®- and S®-type beam selection.
      • Anstar is responsible for the final dimensioning of the beams.
