New design software for composite deck design

Posted on by in News

nSMDscreenshotMay14Structural Metal Decks (SMD) has launched SMD Elements, a new software package for composite deck and slab design.

Elements is said to provide a number of improvements over the company’s previous design tool, such as an improved user interface and support for Eurocode design.

“The main focus has been to provide improved functionality, ease of use and flexibility to the user.  A new loading interface and 3D slab display make producing slab designs simple, while the ability to customise or auto-calculate design parameters allows the calculation to be easily tailored to the needs of every project or user,” said Jamie Turner, SMD Technical Director.

The Elements software package is available for free download on the SMD website ( and a special CPD event to support the launch is being held at the SMD manufacturing facility near Leeds on Thursday 10 July. For more information contact:
