Fachwerk calculates strut-and-tie models used by structural engineers for analysing and designing reinforced concrete structures. The program only uses the equilibrium conditions, thus it is not assuming elastic behaviour.

This release improves the look of background images. The background drawing can be stored.
0.4.408 Mar 2016 21:10
This release adjusts the tolerances used for final equilibrium checks to the size of the forces.
0.4.303 Feb 2016 00:31
This release adds an export function to generate **customized illustrations** of the strut-and-tie model. Fachwerk exports the model and background to an editable Drawj2d-drawing. Various settings like colours or labelling (e.g. tension forces only) can be adjusted.The independent command line program Drawj2d (http://drawj2d.sourceforge.net) then easily generates vector quality pdf, svg or emf (MS Word) graphics.
The fallback language has been set to English. Mac OS X users will notice the better visual adaption to the system, the menu bar is anchored to the top of the screen.
The way the source code is compiled and the software is packaged for distribution has been simplified. The java-based **build tool Ant** is used. Unused parts of the math library have been removed, thus avoiding external build dependencies. The project's source repository is self-contained, the code compiles on JDK 8 (requiring at least JDK 6). A spec (https://build.opensuse.org/package/show/home:qwert2003/Fachwerk) file for building Linux rpm software packages is provided.
0.4.204 Sep 2014 19:24
This release adds the possibility to rotate the model.
