How to Use Prokon 2.6 for Frame Analysis and Design
To illustrate how to use Prokon 2.6 for frame analysis and design, we will use a simple example of a two-storey steel frame with pinned supports at the base and lateral loads at the top. The frame dimensions are shown below:
The steps to perform the frame analysis and design are as follows:
Launch Prokon 2.6 from the Start menu or desktop shortcut.
Select Frame Analysis from the list of programs.
Create a new project by clicking on the New button on the toolbar or selecting File > New Project from the menu.
Enter a project name, description and location in the dialog box that appears and click OK.
Add nodes to the frame by clicking on the Add Node button on the toolbar or selecting Edit > Add Node from the menu. Enter the node coordinates in the dialog box that appears and click OK. Repeat this step until all nodes are added.
Add members to the frame by clicking on the Add Member button on the toolbar or selecting Edit > Add Member from the menu. Select the start node and end node of each member in the dialog box that appears and click OK. Repeat this step until all members are added.
Add supports to the frame by clicking on the Support button on the toolbar or selecting Edit > Support from the menu. Select the node where you want to add a support in the dialog box that appears and click OK. Repeat this step until all supports are added.
Add loads to the frame by clicking on the Load button on the toolbar or selecting Edit > Load from the menu. Select the load type (point load, distributed load or moment load) in the dialog box that appears and enter the load magnitude, direction and position. Click OK. Repeat this step until all loads are added.
Analyze the frame by clicking on the Analyze button on the toolbar or 061ffe29dd
