The latest version of Elements® is available with an additional feature allowing calculations to be created for SMD roof deck profiles.
With over 2,000 downloads since Elements was launched in May 2014, the software has proven to be a good success with regular feedback from engineers stating that it’s the best software on the market!
Elements is used by an average of 623 users each month, because of this, the software has received a significant update with the addition of the Roof deck section.
Roof Deck Calcs
The new section of Elements allows the user to run calculations on all SMD roof deck products in a similar tabulated, step-by-step process to the floor deck process. The calculation process allows the user to add loading’s to their design finishing with a results page suggesting deck profiles which can be used based on the design criteria.
To accompany the new release, Jamie Turner, SMD Technical Development Director, created a tutorial with step-by-step guidance how to run a roof deck calculation.
