Learn about the flexible solving options in Robot Strctural Analysis Professional.
Flexible solving options enable you to simulate where you want based on your needs. If you are testing the setup of an analysis, use your local resources to iterate and optimize your setup. When you are ready to kick off a longer, more computationally intensive simulation, use the power of the cloud and free up your local resources for other tasks.
Create virtual wind tunnel simulations to test structural designs for wind loads.
Results of the wind generation may be used for a further analysis or to verify a code-based approach.
Predicting wind load effects early in design can help reveal detrimental wind-induced building responses before structural system changes become a surprising and costly redesign issue.
The Direct Analysis Method (DAM) is a new AISC approach for stability design applicable to steel structures composed of all structural system types.
The link between Revit and Robot Structural Analysis Professional software supports the iterative design process and the exchange of data.
Powerful auto-meshing generation techniques enable structural engineers to effortlessly work with even the most complex models.
You can independently manipulate native automatic mesh generation and manual definition of meshing parameters for each panel. This functionality provides the ability to create a high-quality finite mesh.
Robot Structural Analysis Professional supports multinational design teams using many languages.
You can perform structural analysis in one language and output in another, including English, French, Romanian, Spanish, Dutch, Russian, Polish, Chinese, and Japanese, and you can use imperial and metric units in combination within the same structural model.
Take advantage of more than 60 sections and materials databases from around the world.
Create reinforced concrete design and steel design modules based on more than 40 international steel codes and 30 reinforced concrete codes.
Robot Structural Analysis Professional uses Microsoft Component Object Model (COM) technologies, enabling an open and flexible API.
Depending on the load duration and type, you can create defined loads of different natures, 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. Manual and automatic definitions of load combinations according to many national standards are available.
Investigate the linear and nonlinear behavior of many types of structures.
Enjoy simple and effective analysis of many types such as static, modal, non-linear, seismic, time history analysis etc. These analyses cover any type of necessary analysis that a structural engineer would have to conduct during a project of any type.
Fast, dynamic solvers enable you to carry out structural dynamic analysis for any size of structure.
The efficient analysis algorithms are designed and optimized for quad-core and multicore computer processors, giving structural engineers the calculation speed to deliver accurate engineering analysis results for demanding structures in minutes versus hours.
