Combine properties of both steel and concrete to design and analyze their composite action. Perform analysis between floor plates and beams in accordance with local code requirements.
Create virtual wind tunnel simulations for early testing of structural designs for wind loads. Use wind generation results for further analysis or to verify a code-based approach. Help reveal surprising and detrimental wind-induced building responses before structural system changes become costly.
Powerful auto-meshing generation techniques help structural engineers 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.
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 almost any structure 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.
