Application of ASCE 7 loading requirements can be complex. Simplify your work with this practical utility that runs independently or helps you work inside VisualAnalysis.
(VisualAnalysis makes it easy build models, apply loads, analyze, and perform code-checks.)
LoadHelper runs as a free utility to create named loads for your structural projects. You do not need a VisualAnalysis license to use LoadHelper. Your work can be saved as a report to use in whatever structural software you use for analysis and design. Dead and Live loads may be exported to someone else who does use VisualAnalysis.
Dead and live loads are saved for direct access inside VisualAnalysis when applying member loads. Seismic load criteria may be calculated directly inside VisualAnalysis. Wind loads may be applied to elements based on your LoadHelper report.
