An Up-Close of the Modules
Sumo is PROKON®’s flagship analysis tool and the centre of the PROKON universe. The program is a three dimensional graphical modelling and analysis tool. Sumo performs frame and finite element analyses of structures. With Sumo you can build 3D models of structures using physical structural components such as beams, columns, and slabs. With its grasp of industry standard file formats, Sumo sits comfortably in the modern BIM process.
Frame performs frame and finite element analyses of 2D and 3D structures. It can perform linear, second order, stage, and non-linear static analysis as well as, buckling, modal, harmonic, and seismic analyses of 3D models. Frame is easy to learn and simple to use. Build your model using a combination of beams, shells, and solid finite elements. Analysis results can be exported to various other PROKON® modules for design purposes. The design links include steel member and connection design, timber member design and reinforced concrete design. Results can be viewed and added to a Calcsheet, both in graphics format and analysis reports. Frame also links to other software by way of DXF, DWG, CIS/2 and SNF (Strucad) files. Frame models can also be exported to and imported from Autodesk® Revit® using Prodesk.
The Plane Stress module can be used to perform finite element analysis of a membrane of any general geometry subjected to plane stress or strain. You can combine simple polygons to model complex geometries, and the program automatically generates a suitable mesh for the analysis. Multiple load cases comprising point loads and UDL’s can be applied to the outline of the model.
The Single Span Beam module can be used to analyse a beam quickly. The beam can be a single span beam, or a single span taken from a continuous beam with the appropriate end conditions. The analysis results of steel beams can be post-processed with the steel member design module for combined stress.
Elastic Support Beam was developed for rapid analysis of a beam or a slab on an elastic foundation. This module allows for the analysis of beams or slabs with varying cross-sections along their lengths. Elastic foundations may include variations or gaps in the elastic medium, and rigid supports. An unlimited number of loads may be entered.
Design single and multi-span reinforced concrete beams and slabs, with rectangular, T, L, or I shaped, and inverted T and L-sections, as well as tapered sections. You can analyse sub-frames and the module automates the pattern loading of dead and live loads at ultimate limit state. Continuous Beam allows redistribution of moments and shear to a user specified percentage. This module can be used on its own or as a post-processor for Sumo. Generate complete bending schedules for beams and slabs.
Captain (Computer Aided Post Tensioning Analysis Instrument) designs most types of continuous prestressed beam and slab systems from single span to twenty-spans, encountered in typical building projects. Cross sections can include a mixture of rectangular, I, T and L-sections as well as user defined sections and tapered sections. The module automatically applies pattern loading to entered dead and live loads. At ultimate limit state, moments and shears are redistributed to a specified percentage. Captain can calculate estimates for quantities and tendon profile schedules can be generated for use with Padds. Schedules can be edited and printed using Padds
Design rectangular reinforced concrete flat slab panels with a variety of edge supports. You can enter multiple load cases comprising of point loads, line loads, and UDLs, and combine these with ULS load factors. The module calculates steel reinforcement using the formulae stipulated in the relevant design codes. Reinforcement is automatically added to the slab
Rectangular Column designs solid rectangular concrete columns subjected to axial forces and bi-axial bending moments. The simplified design approach set out in most codes is used for the design. The module can be used independently, or as a Design Link from Sumo. The Design Links automate data entry by linking analysis results and geometry with the design module
Circular Column designs solid circular concrete columns subject to axial forces and biaxial bending moments. The simplified design approach set out in most codes is used for the design. The module can be used independently, or as a Design Link from Sumo. The Design Links automate data entry by linking analysis results and geometry with the design module.
Analyse concrete retaining walls for normal soil and surcharge loads. The module can design most conventional retaining walls, including cantilever, simply supported, and propped cantilever walls. Analyse walls with complex geometries like backward or forward sloping walls as well as walls that have a varying thickness through their height. Optionally include a toe in the base. Choose between the Rankine and Coulomb theories and incorporate seepage in the analysis. A water table can also be specified
Padds, short for Parametric Drawing and Detailing System, was developed specifically for structural engineers and their draughting personnel. With its intuitive and uncomplicated interface, new users can be productive within the first couple of hours of using the program. Without the bloat of modern CAD systems, all that remains is a lean and powerful tool for drawing and structural detailing.
Design reinforced concrete sections to meet specific crack requirements. Both rectangular beam and slab sections can be designed to resist the effects of axial tension, bending moment and temperature and the combination thereof. Temperature effects are also included to evaluate early cracking and long-term thermal cracking. The module accounts for concrete shrinkage due to hydration by a combination of the thermal expansion coefficient and the restraint factor. The design method employed by the codes is ideally suited for non-temperate regions like Europe.
Design reinforced concrete flat slabs for punching shear at internal, edge, and corner columns by specifying the distance from the support to the slab edge; the module automatically determines the shear perimeters. You can enter the amount of longitudinal reinforcement present at the critical perimeters, in the two main directions. The design output gives the critical load case with corresponding amounts of punching shear reinforcement needed for each perimeter, as well as suggested reinforcement configurations and detailed calculations.

Pronet is an extension for Autodesk® Civil 3D®, which allows you to add analytical data to pressure network objects; this includes pressure pipes, fittings, and appurtenances. The network is analysed using a modified 64-bit EPANET engine. The analysis is fast and is performed within the Civil 3D environment. After installing Pronet, the easy-to-use ribbon opens directly from the Civil 3D tabs
Perform advanced analyses between two version of the same model. Choose which elements to compare and what tolerances to verify. The change management tool also features a dynamic coordination tool that enables model coordinators to manage model changes and keep track of issues with elements in question.
Manage Navisworks® clashes directly in Revit®, without the need for Navisworks. The tool requires a Navisworks Clash report (generated through Navisworks), after which it enables model coordinators to manage, find, and solve model clashes directly in the Revit environment, using the Clash Navigator.
Effortlessly design and optimise steel members subject to a combination of axial, bending, and shear stress, e.g., beams and columns in frames. Easily process your analysis results from Sumo and Frame or use the interactive mode for quick design and checking of individual members without the need to first perform an analysis.
Swiftly design and optimise multi-span crane gantry girders with one or two cranes. The program allows for continuously or simply supported girders. Multiple combinations of main beams and capping beams, including standard I-sections, plate girders and box girders are all supported. Crane Beam calculates the envelopes for all the required design forces (including vertical loads and horizontal effects of the moving cranes), moments and deflections.
Plate Girder designs I-shaped sections with identical or different top and bottom flanges. The program also allows the user to model tapered elements. The program checks the behaviour of girders under specified loading and gives guidance regarding bearing and intermediate stiffeners. The analysis output can be viewed graphically, or detailed design calculations can be shown.
Hollow Sections performs design checks on welded hollow section joints in lattice structures. The connecting members transmit axial force and can be circular, square, or rectangular hollow sections. The main chord can be I, H, or hollow profiles. Supported connection layouts include K, T, N, X, and Y joints and combinations thereof. The module allows you to enter factored design forces in the chord and braces.
The beam module allows you to design a composite section for flexure. Composite construction methods are becoming more popular globally due to the rapid construction potential and efficient use of materials. The module forms part of the PROKON structural analysis and design suit together with the three other composite design modules.
