    I've been searching for scantling software tools, and this is what I've found:
    ISO 12215-5: Scantling Calculator
    ISO is developing software to be released as part of the standard with its next edition. Till then, legitimate owners of ISO 12215-5 will have access for free to the Scantlings Calculator.

    ISO 12215-9:
    There is also a free downloadable software (10mb) to check Keel Design: ICOMIA Keel-Checker v3-0-1 (10MB)
    Users should obtain the six-digit code to unlock the evaluation version from Dr Robin Loscombe (Robin.Loscombe@solent.ac.uk).

    More info at the ICOMIA site:
    www.icomia.com

    Bureau Veritas: VeriSTAR offers a wide range of scantling applications, most of them for free:
    Bulk
    ComposeIT
    Mars2000 Scantlings
    MarsInland
    MarSpeed Scantlings
    SteelWin Demo

    All this and more can be downloaded from:
    http://www.veristar.com/wps/portal/!ut/p/.cmd/cs/.ce/7_0_A/.s/7_0_1476/_s.7_0_A/7_0_1476

    Please post here your feedback ;)

    I've found awesome (and useful) this combination of a complete Scantling Rule:
    (Rules for the Classification and the Certification of Yachts (NR 500), last release march 2012)
    and ComposeIT, a very practice (free) Scantlings Software (see previous post).
    No unlocking codes, no evaluation version: it just works.

    NR500 can be downloaded for free from:
    http://www.veristar.com/wps/portal/...s&PC_7_1_8J3_publication=veristarinfo#7_1_8J3

    Other Bureau Veritas Rules can be downloaded from:
    http://www.veristar.com/wps/portal/!ut/p/_s.7_0_A/7_0_141K

    I don't understand why BV offers for free what ISO charges a little fortune, marketing in a gobernment level perhaps? :confused:
