Quickly build and analyze 2D frames for static
and dynamic loads.  Calculate deflections,
stresses, moments, shear and axial loads for
static, frequency and transient responses.  
Natural frequencies can also be calculated.
Determine linear and nonlinear buckling
loads for complex constrained axial
members including lateral and
rotational  springs.
Analyze beams for static and dynamic loads.  
Calculate deflections, stresses, moments
and shear loads for static, frequency and
dynamic responses from sinusoidal or
transient excitations.  Natural frequencies can
also be calculated.
Calculate heat sink temperatures for multiple
heat sources for forced or natural convection.  
Steady-state and transient options are both
