WELDING CAPACITY CALCULATOR
Redem S. Legaspi
This a standalone application which calculates Welding Capacity by INSTANTANEOUS CENTER OF ROTATION Method written in Visual Basic . The application provides a graphic interface [like AutoCAD drawing editor] where welding can be drawn graphically -- represented by LINE objects. The editor supports typical drawing utitlity functions such as DIMENSIONING, MOVE, ZOOM, ROTATE, EDIT, PAN, ERASE and etc. -- more or less simulating AutoCAD. It also has SNAP tools used to snap to Object's Snap Points when drawing a Line namely: ENDPOINT, MIDPOINT, NEAREST, INTERSECTION and PERPEDICULAR. After drawing all the LINES (which represent the WELDS), weld capacity calculation can be then performed by just clicking on the assigned button. The application also includes the following calculators: 1.) Complete Scientific Calculator 2.) Bolt Coefficient Calculator -- which is used in calculating Bolt Group capacity by instantaneous center of rotation method. Hard to calculate manually, these values are usually derived from Table 7-7 to Table 7-14 of AISC Steel Construction Manual, 13th Edition. 3.) Weld Coefficient Calculator -- which is used in calculating Weld Group capacity by instantaneous center of rotation method. Hard to calculate manually, these values are usually derived from Table 8-4 to Table 8-11 of AISC Steel Construction Manual, 13th Edition. The application is in its early stage of development and released/posted here in STEEL TOOLLS as BETA Version. I will be glad to receive comments...
