Poimu software for designing load-bearing sheets

With the Poimu software, you can design load-bearing profiles produced by Ruukki. Load bearing profiles are designed in the Poimu software as one-metre-wide continuous beams. A Poimu profile must have the same type throughout the construction, but the thickness can vary. Basic loads such as uniform snow load and wind load can be easily given with a few parameters. Also, more complicated load types, such as snowdrift loads, can be given. The software also calculates fasteners both for the support structure and side overlaps. Fasteners and forces caused by roof stressed skin design can also be calculated.

PurCalc software for designing purlins

With the PurCalc software, the user can design roof and wall purlins produced by Ruukki. The purlins are designed as continuous beams. The purlin type must be the same for the whole structure, but the thickness may vary. One of the purlin flanges is assumed to be supported with the profile sheet. The other flange may be either supported or unsupported. Basic loads such as uniform snow load and wind load can be easily given with a few parameters. Also, more complicated load types, such as snowdrift loads, can be given. The software calculates the necessary fasteners for the supporting structure as well.
