Logo SPACE GASS for Windows

SPACE GASS is a general purpose 3D analysis and design program for structural engineers. It comes with a full range of features that make it suitable for any job from small beams, trusses and portal frames to large high-rise buildings, towers, tanks, cable structures and bridges. Specialist features include plate finite elements, cable elements, tension and compression-only elements, photorealistic 3D renderer, moving loads and links to many other CAD and building management programs.


1. SPACE GASS is a mature Windows program which has had years of development.

2. SPACE GASS has BS5950 & Eurocode 3 integrated steel design modules available.

3. SPACE GASS has a reputation for being functional and dependable because it incorporates the tools and features that clients ask for.

4. SPACE GASS incorporates many new and unique features
You can use the built-in graphical shape builder to input, combine and manipulate shapes to create the exact cross-section you want. It is an invaluable tool for modelling those non-standard cross-sections.

Multiple Viewports allow you to display and work on different views of your structure simultaneously offering ease of use and easy interpretation of your structural model.

Multiple subset profiles enable you to break down complex structures into more manageable sub-frames eg. sets of transoms, standards, braces etc

The modelling features include semi-rigid joints, direction nodes and axes, dummy nodes, optional copying and deleting of loads with nodes and members, an option for incremental renumbering, stress diagrams, 3D member offsets etc

5. SPACE GASS is an easy structural analysis and design package because it is tested on engineers during development. If they are not satisfied then things get changed.
6. SPACE GASS is under continuous development and improvement. If there is something that you want to see in the program, then ask.
7. SPACE GASS is available, in the UK, from Purbeck Design Services Limited.
