The aim of project is to develop a software program (EC3 tools) which supplies modules for the application of Eurocode 3 part 1.1. It mainly consists in checking methods for the resistance of cross-sections, members, webs and fasteners. The program contains 33 modules. It allows the designer to easily input the data and to create a detailed calculation sheet with the data, the formulae, the intermediate results, some comments and the conclusion regarding the checking criterion. The documentation comprises the user's manual and the validation report. The program runs on microcomputers in the Windows environment. It is bilingual: English and French and the user's manual is available as an on-line help.
