•   New SD8 module - Fire load cases

Fire load cases / load groups, fire parameters assignable to line elements.
AxisVM News
Fire load groups and fire load cases can be defined. Fire design parameters can be assigned to beams, trusses, ribs made of steel to perform enhanced steel design checking the structure against the required fire resistance time.
AxisVM News

•   New load panel functions

Distributing loads over elements in the active parts only, distributing loads over holes has been made optional.
AxisVM News

•   Wind loads on substructures – SWG module

Wind loads can be assigned on substructures with different roof types and other parameters. It is also possible to create separate load cases for each substructure. New structure types: monopitch/duopitch canopies (multispan roofs are supported), free-standing walls and signboards.

•   New module SD8 – Eurocode 3 fireproofing design for steel

AxisVM News

•   New features – RC2 module

Improved method of column reinforcement check for different buckling shapes.
The enhanced design method takes into account the y and z buckling shapes.
Check Local imperfections only if you have already defined imperfection as a structural load.

•   New features – SD1 module

Eurocode 3 SLS deflection check .
AxisVM News

•   New features – SC1 module

Displaying connections defined in SC1 in rendered view, storing SC1 data in the model file.

•   Tables, reports

Table Browser supports color coding of table cells helps the user to overview the table, identify equal / smaller / bigger values. Colors appear only on screen. This feature can be activated / deactivated within the Table Browser, see Format / Color coding of table cells.
AxisVM News
In X4 Table Browser also supports sorting of table rows by one or more columns. Move the mouse over the header row to see that some columns under the mouse pointer turn from grey to bluish. Clicking on any of these column headers makes the header light blue and a triangle symbol appears on the right side of the header showing the ascending or descending order. More than one column can be selected for sorting. If multiple criteria are set they are applied in the order of they have been defined.
The order of multiple criteria can be checked right clicking on the header. The last menu item (Turning off sorting by columns) of the popup menu shows the order of criteria.

•   Rebar statistics

Rebar statistics includes beam and column reinforcement.
