Click here to download the latest version of the Shearfix design program. Please update your software without delay to take advantage of new functionality. This download replaces any version prior to 18th July 2011.
The latest software enables the user to carry out designs to BS 8110 and Eurocode 2. It will also take account of openings in the slab. Details of voids can be inputted into the program; the software then calculates the perimeter reductions and automatically updates the design. The software also allows direct input of effective shear load (Veff) as well as design shear loads (VEd or Vt).
Please note, the ‘Download’ should be saved over the existing version of the software. When you next open the program, you will be able to use it as normal.
