Structural Analysis Software

Design, check and optimise wood panel sizes. APF WoodPanel aids in the analysis and design of XLAM wood panel frames for floor, walls and roofs

APF WoodPanel lets you design timber slabs (XLAM or CLT), according to Eurocode 5 (EC5).

All you have to do is specify the dimensions, the configuration and the actions. APF WoodPanel performs all the required checks for ULS, according to Eurocode 5.

APF WoodPanel reports warns you in case of unacceptable design of the timber panel

The results are displayed in the graphic environment and the user can save a detailed report with calculation details and images.

The user interface is designed to simplify your work. You can change every value (cross sections’ size, timber beam length, etc.), recalculate and the results are immediately available.

All the design variables, such as load coefficients, material properties (mechanical properties of timber), can be adjusted by you, according to your needs (or the requirements of any National Standard or National annex to the Eurocodes).

APF WoodPanel performs a structural analysis of the panel calculating the normal and shear stresses in the crossed layers. The forces and stresses acting on the panel faces are displayed by the graphical interface, for each load case separately.

The following ULS are checked:

  • Tension (parallel)
  • Compression (parallel)
  • Bending (transverse and longitudinal)
  • Shear (transverse and longitudinal)
  • Stability (axial load)
  • Torsion
