    FTOOL Alternatives

    FTOOL is described as 'program that is aimed at teaching the structural behavior of plane frames, occupying an area little explored by educational programs, which are more concerned with the teaching of numerical analysis techniques, or educational versions of commercial programs, more'. There are more than 10 alternatives to FTOOL for a variety of platforms, including Windows, Linux, Online / Web-based, Windows Mobile and Android. The best alternative is Frame Design, which is free. Other great apps like FTOOL are Optimal Beam (Freemium), LinPro (Free), Telaio2D (Free) and Smart Frame 2D (Free Personal).
