Capabilities
  • Analyze gravity and lateral load

    • Design and analyze simple or complex structures for a wide range of loading conditions, including those induced by gravity such as dead and live loads, including skip conditions, in combination with lateral loads including wind and seismic.
  • Comply with seismic requirements

    • Design and detail seismic force-resisting systems, generating seismic loads according to the relevant building code. Consider these forces in the design of elements and, where applicable, the design of frames and the larger structural system. Enforce the ductility requirements of the selected design code in element proportioning and detailing.
  • Create finite element meshes

    • Use element generation to decompose physical elements such as slabs, mats, or walls into series of plates or solids. Efficiently generate finite element geometry for complex objects with openings. Optimize finite element analysis by choosing various plate shapes based on analysis requirements.
  • Design and analyze structural models

    • Quickly model your entire structure, including decks, slabs, slab edges and openings, beams, columns, walls, braces, spread and continuous footings, and pile caps. Efficiently automate many of your time-consuming design and analysis tasks and produce practical system and component designs that are document ready.
  • Design beams, columns and walls

    • Optimize or analyze beams, columns, and walls for gravity and lateral loads to quickly obtain safe and economical designs. Confidently produce designs in compliance with U.S. requirements and many international design specifications and building codes.
  • Design to international design standards

    • Extend the reach of your business practice and take advantage of global design opportunities by using a wide range of international standards and specifications in our design products. Complete your designs with confidence thanks to extensive support of U.S. and international standards.
  • Detail and schedule concrete rebar

    • Produce rebar placing drawings, including sections, plans, details, bar bending schedules, material take-offs and beam/column/footing schedules, all based on the 3D model. All schedules and drawings can be customized to adhere to your company’s standards for concrete projects.
  • Generate design loads and load combinations

    • Apply code-prescribed wind and seismic loads to the structure using built-in load generators. Calculate relevant loading parameters automatically based on the structural geometry, mass, and selected building code provisions without the need for separate hand calculations. Combine these lateral load cases with gravity and other types of loads using load combination generators.
  • Model building structures

    • Model, analyze, and design with intuitive applications tailored especially to the needs of building structures. Quickly obtain comprehensive and thorough designs that conform to U.S. and international building code requirements.
  • Model reinforced concrete

    • Model reinforced concrete shapes such as concrete beams, columns, slabs, walls, spread footings, and continuous footings, all with parametric behavior. Changes to the concrete shape cause the rebar to adjust automatically. Model complex reinforced concrete shapes, including curves, sloping, or non-orthogonal shapes using intuitive commands.
  • Produce structural concrete details

    • Produce rebar placing drawings, including sections, plans and details from the 3D model. Quickly create details of reinforcing, including automated rebar labels, dimensions, and notes. Customize all drawings to adhere to your company’s standards for all your reinforced concrete projects. Automatically update drawings based on changes to the 3D model. 
  • Produce structural design documentation

    • Generate structural design documents automatically, including necessary plans and elevations that are used to convey the design intent. Changes made to the 3D model are automatically updated in the documentation.
  • Share structural models

    • Transfer structural model geometry and design results from one application to another and synchronize changes over time. Quickly share the structural model, drawings, and information with the entire team for review.
