Some of the prominent features of PLAN23D are here:


  • Produces ready-to-go input files for general purpose structural analysis software packages
  • Fast, easy and error-free modeling of multi-story buildings
  • As a self-learning tool, the user learns it fast
  • Enables the user to model multi-story buildings without using any manuals
  • Has a new modeling approach based on the following principles:
         All input data relates to the floor plan layout.
         The user does not have to visualize the 3-D structure prior to starting input.
  • Offers the power and flexibility for fast and easy modeling of multi-story buildings
  • Frees the user numbering of elements, joints, bays or columns before starting the input data.
  • Frees the user from the complexities of local and global axes in defining sections
  • Generates live load patterns with a few clicks of the mouse
  • Distributes loads to the beams automatically for one-way and two-way slabs 
  • Allows section assignment to beams and columns with a click of the mouse
  • Allows the user to specify the wall loads with mouse clicks 
  • IBC 2003 response spectrum for users specified soil properties
  • Rigid diaphram modeling with a single click of the mouse
  • PLAN23D is just a modeling tool for multi-story buildings. It produces a ready-to-go input data file for your structural analysis software package of your choice. PLAN23D does not perform structural analysis.
