Description  more details

Guy wire supported stack design can be extremely complicated. The designer must consider the nonlinearity of the cables as well as all combinations of load direction, corrosion and temperature in order to find the worst case for each element of the design. Most general purpose structural programs (StaadPro, Risa, etc..) simply don't handle guyed stack design adequately, or they make it extremely difficult and time consuming. MecaStack not only makes modeling a guyed stack simple, but it automatically constructs an array of load cases to ensure that the worst case scenarios for each element of the design is captured. It also helps with the selection of the appropriate guy wire hardware. The design of one guyed stack usually saves enough time to recover the cost of the software.

Outputs are customizable in MecaStack. The user may select which output is displayed before anything is analyzed. Then once the analysis is ran, the user can select from a table of contents which items are going to be presented in the final report. Also, clicking on any of the table of contents will take the user directly to that section. Sections involving “Pass” or “Fail” criteria are displayed with the colors and . This allows the user to quickly determine if there are any problems in the stack. GREEN (everything passing) RED (at least one Steel Stack design software.
