Whether you’re designing shear, moment, brace or base plate connections, RISAConnection has you covered. Want to design HSS connections or seismically detailed connections? No problem.Available Connection Types
RISAConnection is at the cutting edge of next-generation connection design software and features full 3D visualization as well as expandable reports for every limit state. A robust library of steel connections (for US and Canadian codes) including shear, moment, brace and base plate connections. Quickly create a single connection or model multiple connections in a single project. Click through simple and easy windows and property selections. No drawing is required from users in the standalone software.

Design and optimize steel member connections using RISAConnection. Utilize practical seismic connection design for moment and braced frames according to AISC 341 and AISC 358. Analyze non-concentric connections such as Diagonal Brace Connections by using unlimited geometry design. RISAConnection analyzes several design code checks from AISC such as stability, welding, and steel material just to name a few.
To learn more about the design codes that RISAConnection supports, please visit our Design Codes section.
Comprehensive detailed reports including expandable limit state sections for each connection. Editable printed reports also to include 3D and 2D views along with expandable sections. Detailed connection drawings can be exported to DXF for final documentation. View results in RISA Connection or in RISA-3D (if using integration).
Seamless integration with RISA-3D and RISAFloor allows for load and properties established in superstructure to be leveraged for connection design. RISAConnection includes integration with Hilti Profis for anchorage design. Complete integration with partner software packages such as Tekla Structures makes for a seamless solution for the design and detailing of steel connection.
Easily control all properties and connection components from an extensive catalog of American and Canadian steel connection configurations.
Design seismically detailed moment and brace connections including frame ductility and overstrength considerations according to AISC 341 and AISC 358.
Integration with RISA-3D and RISAFloor enables comprehensive connection design based on loads and properties established in the superstructure model.
