Simulate wind loads both locally and in the cloud.
The Direct Analysis Method (DAM) is an AISC approach for stability design applicable to steel structures of all structural system types.
Advantages of DAM implementation include:
Investigate the linear and nonlinear behavior of many structure types.
Run data on a wide range of projects of almost any type. Structural engineers can take advantage of simple and effective analysis of static, modal, and nonlinear structures, and run analysis on seismic studies, time history analysis, and more.
Fast, dynamic solvers enable you to carry out structural dynamic analysis for structures of any size.
Design and optimize efficient analysis algorithms for quad-core and multicore computer processors. Structural engineers have the calculation speed to deliver accurate engineering analysis results for demanding structures in minutes, rather than hours.
Create virtual wind tunnel simulations to test structural designs for wind loads.
Powerful auto-meshing generation techniques help structural engineers to work more easily with the most complex models.
Independently manipulate native automatic mesh generation and manual definition of meshing parameters for each panel. Utilize effective structural engineering software that helps to create a high-quality finite mesh.
Quickly access more than 60 global sections and materials databases.
Create reinforced concrete design and steel design modules based on more than 40 international steel codes and 30 reinforced concrete codes.
Depending on load duration and type, you can create different defined loads, such as dead, live, wind, or seismic.
Apply various types of loads (such as nodal, linear, or planar) to a structure to the defined load cases. Definitions of load combinations from many national standards, both manual and automatic, are also included.
The link between Revit building design software and Robot Structural Analysis Professional software supports an iterative design process and data exchange.
Enhance collaboration between designers and engineers and further demonstrate the value of Building Information Modeling (BIM) to structural engineers. Robot Structural Analysis Professional also helps integrate information into the BIM process and supports structural designers’ workflow needs.
Support multinational design teams using many languages.
You can perform structural analysis in one language and create output in another, including English, French, Italian, Portuguese, Romanian, Spanish, German, Russian, Chinese, and Japanese. Global users can also use both imperial and metric units simultaneously within the same structural model.
Robot Structural Analysis Professional uses Microsoft Component Object Model (COM) technologies for an open and flexible API.
