STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS & DESIGN SOFTWARE

⇦   AxisVM 13

New Features in AxisVM 12

1.  General

•   64 bit version, full memory access in calculation, also in pre- and post processing. Resulting in much faster analysis of more
      complex models. ( 64 bits upgrade and 64 bits operating system )

•   Supporting WIN7 type Open/Save dialog boxes.

•   In the Table Browser the user can save the actual state of the displayed and hidden columns.

•   Import PDF drawing files as active model framework or as a background layer. ( PDF module )

AxisVM News

Import PDF drawing files as active model

•   AutoCAD 2004 compatible DXF export/Import (RGB colours and Unicode text).

•   The program handles the boolean operations in IFC import (cut, union, etc...).

•   Colour code display according to the chosen property (material/section/hinge type/ thickness/column/beam/plate/wall, etc...).

AxisVM News

Different architectural elements (beam, column, wall, slab) shown in various colours

AxisVM News

Different cross-sections shown in different colours

•   The user can set, modify and save the Colour legend properties.

AxisVM News

Default colour gradient

AxisVM News

New (user-defined)
colour gradient

•   User can set the size and colour of the structural elements and graphical symbols (nodes, lines, hinges, supports, loads, etc.).

AxisVM News

Changing the colour of beams from red to black

3.  Elements
Top of the page  ⇨

•   New properties for modelling brick walls in the material database.

•   Editable shear stiffness of walls (between 10~100%), for better simulation of brick walls.

•   Parametric quad mesh generation for „regular” regions.

•   Editable load groups relationships (simultaneous, exclusive, either).

•   Snow and wind load generation for structures presented in the design codes ( SWG module ).

•   Load panel editor.

AxisVM News

Domain as load panel

 

•   Snow and wind parameter definition and calculation.

5.  Analysis
Top of the page  ⇨

•   Elastic-plastic and nonlinear material models. -elastic-plastic/material nonlinear analysis for beams, ribs, plates, shells
      ( PNL package ).

AxisVM News

Elastic-plastic analysis of a membrane with a hole

AxisVM News

Plastic behaviour (hysteresis response) under cyclic load

•   Parallel processing in the postprocessor (stress, reinforcement, crack width, etc. calculations). ( MT module )

6.  Results
Top of the page  ⇨

•   Program can display the relative deflections of the beams.

AxisVM News

Total displacement

AxisVM News

Deformations relative to displaced endpoints

•   User can define and save various envelopes or use pre-defined ones (envelopes of ULS or SLS combinations).

•   Display the relative rotation of the pushover hinges.

•   Display the elastic/plastic or final deformation of the elastic-plastic analysis ( PNL package ).

•   Version 12 displays the pad footing geometry with option to show all dimensions automatically. ( RC4 module )

AxisVM News

Rendered displaying

AxisVM News

Wireframe displaying

•   New built in Mcr moment calculation for lateral torsional buckling check ( SD1 module ).

•   Steel section optimisation with design groups of members ( SD9 module ).

8.  Documentation
Top of the page  ⇨

•   User can display and add tables for moving load to the Report.

•   The Report maker can handle all envelopes of the model.

•   User can define and save Report templates for familiar models.

AxisVM News

Steps of making a report template

•   The version 12 can display calculation details of punching check and add them to the report. ( RC3 module )

AxisVM News

Punching analysis result

•   The version 12 can display the calculation details of pad footing design (in the same format as the punching check). ( RC4 module )
