RC6 MODULE

STRESS-STRAIN ANALYSIS FOR REINFORCED CONCRETE CROSS-SECTIONS

In serviceability limit state design or in the case of pre/post-tensioned structural elements, the compression stresses in the concrete need to be limited. Furthermore, the stresses and strains in the concrete or in the rebars need to be known in many cases (e.g. crack width calculation, fatigue analysis). With the RC6 module, stress-strain analysis of reinforced concrete beams and columns can be performed considering bending moments (My, Mz) and axial force (Nx) obtained from a static analysis or specified by the user. The analysis considers cracking of the section and nonlinear behaviour of the concrete and steel.

SAF MODULE

EXCEL BASED BIDIRECTIONAL DATA CONNECTION

The SAF (Structural Analysis File) module supports an Excel based file format allowing data exchange of structural analysis models with other software products implementing this protocol. It is a set of standardized spreadsheets for the geometry, structural, and load properties of the model, that can be viewed and/or edited with Excel. SAF is supported by ArchiCAD, AllPlan, SCIA, and RISA-3D and other products.

MD1 MODULE

DESIGN OF MASONRY WALLS

Masonry structures are one of the most traditional types of construction, but their design often encounters difficulties due to uncertainty and modelling issues. AxisVM provides practical assistance with these by automating the most common design steps. The module covers the entire design process, allowing for interactive and streamlined work and for the possibility of quick documentation.

RC5 MODULE

DESIGN OF REINFORCED CONCRETE WALLS AND CORES

Reinforced concrete walls and cores are generally subjected to axial and shear forces and bending and torsional moments due to their function, namely providing the lateral stiffness of the whole building and carrying the gravitational loads on the slabs. Using the RC5 module, reinforcement can be assigned to reinforced cores and walls and the design of cores/walls can be subjected to bending moments and shear and axial forces.

TD8 MODULE

FIRE DESIGN OF TIMBER ELEMENTS

With the help of this module, the reliability of timber elements under fire can be analysed. The analysis lays on the “conventional” verification (see TD1 module) performed at normal temperature but complements it with fire specific verifications. The fire effect is represented by the fire curve specifying the gas temperature in the fire compartment as a function of time. ISO standard or parametric fire curves can be chosen. The module uses the reduced cross-section method when verifying the elements.
