Analysis methods

  • Direct Analysis Method
    The Direct Analysis Method (DAM) is an AISC approach for stability design applicable to steel structures of all structural system types.
  • Wide range of analysis capabilities
    Investigate the linear and nonlinear behavior of many structure types.
  • Dynamic analysis solvers
    Fast, dynamic solvers enable you to carry out structural dynamic analysis for structures of any size.

 

Boundary conditions & meshing

  • Wind load simulation
    Create virtual wind tunnel simulations to test structural designs for wind loads.
  • Advanced auto-meshing and structural modeling
    Powerful auto-meshing generation techniques help structural engineers to work more easily with the most complex models.
  • Materials and design codes support
    Quickly access more than 60 global sections and materials databases.
  • Integrated solution for concrete and steel
    Create reinforced concrete design and steel design modules based on more than 40 international steel codes and 30 reinforced concrete codes.
  • Structural loads and load combinations
    Depending on load duration and type, you can create different defined loads, such as dead, live, wind, or seismic.

 

Analysis & simulation

  • Composite beam design New
    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.
  • Wind load simulation
    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.
  • Advanced auto-meshing and structural modeling
    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.
  • Direct Analysis Method (DAM)
    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:
    o Rigorous, practical, and customizable tools.
    o Easy-to-use and reliable results with negligible increase in analysis and design time.
    o Consideration of all code-required stability effects.
  • Wide range of analysis capabilities
    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.
  • Dynamic analysis solvers
    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.

 

Code-based verification & design

  • Materials and design codes support
    Quickly access more than 60 global sections and materials databases. With an array of 70 built-in design codes, structural engineers can work with country-specific section shapes, imperial or metric units, and country-specific building codes within the same integrated model.
  • Steel, concrete, and timber
    Create reinforced concrete design and steel design modules based on more than 40 international steel codes and 30 reinforced concrete codes.
  • Structural loads and load combinations
    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.

 

Collaboration & reporting

  • BIM integrated workflows
    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.
  • Localized for global markets
    Support multinational design teams using many languages. 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.
  • Open and flexible API
    Robot Structural Analysis Professional uses Microsoft Component Object Model (COM) technologies for an open and flexible API.
  • Reporting analysis results support
    Flexibly obtain and report structural analysis results. With so many ways to access and present analytical data, structural engineers can more quickly prepare final documentation suited to their needs.
