This work intends to develop a computer program that performs pre-processing of two-dimensional frame structures functions through the Microsoft Visual Studio Community 2015 application. This program will be coupled with one already implemented by other students, which performs calculations to determine efforts and displacements of this type of structure. The program will be developed in object-oriented language, making its manipulation intuitive via a simple and friendly interface for Windows environment. In order to deliver results that allow the visualization of the structure entered data by the user, such as number of nodes and members, loads and supports, the software will enable a more dynamic interaction between user and machine, with the help of various visual elements. Its development will be of great utility and will increase the academic knowledge of the student, even for the academic and the professional communities by making a more practical and responsive definition phase of the structure desired by the user and simulating two-dimensional frame structures and buildings, essential to any civil engineer.
