Merlin - Section properties calculator and BS5950 design tool
Merlin is the BS5950 equivalent of QuikEC3 and remains an effective tool for creating custom sections for export to Quikport, Quikjoint, Quikframe and Quikbeam.
Merlin speeds the repetitive calculations required for steel design to BS5950-P1:2000. The program deals with a comprehensive range of section shapes including semi-compact and slender and even facilitates the creation of custom made rolled and fabricated sections.
Use Merlin to try out ideas or perform complete member design.
