PocketStatics Features

PocketStatics provides analysis features that allow the efficient analysis of almost any two-dimensional frame or truss. Whether you need to analyze a single beam or column, multiple continuous beams, or a complex frame or truss, PocketStatics provides the capability to perform that analysis.

The user interface is very easy to use and very interactive and responsive which makes ideal for use in meetings, at construction sites, as well at your desk in addition to any other location. This allows you to quickly test ideas and document and analyze your structure whenever you want.

Analysis Capabilities


  • Analysis of 2D frames and trusses
  • Element distributed loads. Can be trapezoidal (non-uniform)
  • Node loads (forces and moments)
  • Element end moment releases
  • Define frame element properties (modulus of elasticity, area, moment of inertia)
  • Compute node deformations, reactions
  • Compute deformations, moments, shears, axial forces along element
  • Translational and rotational degrees of freedom can be individually fixed for each node.

Main User Interface Features


  • Highly intuitive interface which gives you the ability to easily and quickly sketch your structure
  • Unlimited Undo/Redo capability
  • Saving and opening of model files
  • Ability to share models between all devices
  • Help system
  • Immediate display of deformed shape, reactions, and moment, shear and axial force diagrams
  • Powerful zooming and panning capabilities

Detailed User Interface Features


  • Interactive definition of structure geometry, boundary condition and loads without having to type any values
  • Common boundary conditions (pin, roller, fixity) can be easily assigned through toolbar buttons
  • Further refinement of properties and load values can be easily accomplished using simple dialog boxes
  • Continuous analysis of the structure and display of results as you make modifications
  • Continuous feedback on the stability of the structure
  • Ability to show/hide:
    • Nodes
    • Node Labels
    • Node Forces
    • Node Moments
    • Frame Elements
    • Frame Labels
    • Frame End Releases
    • Frame Distributed Loads
  • Display of deformed shape, moment diagram, shear diagram, axial force diagram and reactions
  • The software displays the exact deformed shape and force diagrams (moment, shear, axial):
    • The point with maximum or minimum deformation or force is highlighted
    • The value of the maximum deformation or force is also shown which makes it easy to obtain results very quickly.
    • Control what values will be shown on diagrams (you can refine how many values you see in order to optimize your view especially on smaller screens)
