Software Name: Connection Study Environment (CSE)
Description: CSE is a software program dealing with steel connections. The main innovation of CSE is that is can be used to design connections freely placing components, and, afterwards, check them. The program offers a wide coverage of issues regarding steel connections: it uses automatic internal rules, user-defined rules, and is also able to create automatically fem models of components (members with their workings, plates, cross-section trunks, angles, double-angles and more). CSE is the result of a research dating since 1999. The main aim of CSE is not drawing or detailing, but checking connections. It does not use "kitchen-recipes" to allow a limited number of connections, but lets the user build up their connections freely. A number of tutorials for various connections types is available with the program.
