Software for the calculation of X-HVB Shear Connectors


Fast and reliable calculation of collaborating beams and now even more performing

Our Shear Connector Design software helps engineers to easily perform composite beam designs according to Eurocode standards. Manage your design workflows from the detailed design phase to project documentation.


Ready for your unique designs

Whether you’re working on a new design with standard steel beams and profiled sheeting or a delicate rehabilitation project with existing steel profiles, Shear Connector Design can help you to efficiently design the best solution.

All you have to do is enter critical design input and restraints, define load combinations and position connectors. Then the final report will show you your calculation descriptions, designs and drawings to help installation on the job site.

With our Shear Connector Design, you can:

Customise designs and precisely calculate:
  • Internal and edge beams in simply supported configuration, with customisable steel profile geometry and steel grade
  • Lightweight and standard concrete
  • Solid slab (with or without haunches) and slab with profiled sheeting
  • Distributed loads, line loads and point loads
  • Propped and unpropped conditions at the construction stage
  • Plastic design with full and partial degree of connection
  • Bending moment and shear resistance checks, including web and lateral torsional buckling verifications
