X7 NEW FEATURES 

NEW FEATURES IN EXISTING MODULES

RC1 module

Utilization of result components for the actual reinforcement

 

The utilization of the actual reinforcement is determined based on the capacity curve of the cross-section.

RC2 module

Optional consideration of torsion in the design of RC columns

In the design of reinforced concrete columns, the check for torsion can be switched on/off.

RC2 module

Enhanced shear check of reinforced concrete columns

The biaxial shear check can be disabled in the verification of the RC columns. In addition to the linear summation, a parabolic relationship can also be used for verification.

RC3 module

Punching check considering connecting ribs

The punching check is also available for columns with connecting ribs.

RC3 module

Punching check of column reinforced wall ends/corners

The punching check of wall ends/corners can be performed even if a column is connected to the wall end/corners.

RC4 module

Additional options for the design of footings

 

The range of verifications taken into account in the design of footings has been extended. The footings can be designed based on a specified set of verifications.

RC4 module

Verification of footings against uplift

If an upward force acts on the footing, the program checks whether the self-weight of the footing counterbalances the corresponding external force.

SC1 module

Moment-resisting beam joint with end plate

Beam-to-beam connection with end plate joints. Detailed design calculation is available on request.

SC1 module

Moment-resisting beam-column joint

Moment-resisting beam-column joints with an optional diagonal welded plate. Detailed design calculation is available on request.

SWG module

Custom setting of µ1 snow load shape coefficient
The snow load shape coefficient µ1 can be modified for flat and mono-pitch roofs.

SWG module

Roof panels with snow guards

 

Snow guards can be assigned to roof panels, with the exception of cylindrical roofs.

NEW FEATURES IN BIM

IFC

Additional import options

New options are available for importing an IFC model:  Overwrite, Add, Update.

IFC

Export of special domains

The IFC export option is available for ribbed, hollow core, composite ribbed, and trapezoidal steel deck slab domains.

Revit-AXISVM

Support of Revit 2024

The supported file versions have been extended with Revit 2024.

AXISVM transfers the model data using the API interface of Revit (Revit 2019 or a newer version is required).

Revit-AXISVM

Export of actual reinforcement to Revit 2023 and 2024

With the enhanced transfer the following data and elements are exported: 

Beam elements with their material and cross-section properties 

domains with their material properties 

supports

actual reinforcements

the analytical model 

Rhino/Grasshopper

New interface for V6.0 Rhino/Grasshopper

New features and options available in GrasshopperToAxisVM V6.0:

component for definition of parametric cross-sections 

XLAM domain, references, and component to define spring characteristics 

node-to-node and line-to-line link elements 

additional load options (seismic, snow, wind, fluid, support displacement…) 

launching AxisVM analysis from Grasshopper (linear and nonlinear static, vibration, buckling, and seismic analysis) 

creating steel members

creating timber members

Revit/Dynamo

New interface for V3.0 Revit/Dynamo

The components available in the new interface support all AXISVM element and load types.

NEW FEATURES IN THE BASIC PACKAGES

Cross-sections

Parametric Z section

A parametric Z section is available in the cross-section editor

Elements

Additional option for domain eccentricities

When setting the eccentricities assigned to domains, the user can specify whether they should be taken into account in the calculation or only included in the drawing as a visual effect.

Elements

Spring characteristics of edge hinges

Allows for the definition of edge hinges with spring characteristics, different static and vibration stiffness, and complex/complex nonlinear behaviour modelling.

Modelling

Automatic calculation of the shear center of the structure

The program automatically calculates the shear center of the levels, which are displayed when the model is built.

Loads

Automatic self-weight load case

A new self-weight load case is available, which automatically includes the self-weight load of all structural elements in the model.

Loads

Merging loads

Allows for merging separate load cases from the same group into a single load case.

Buckling

Buckling analysis for selected model parts (NL package) 

The entire structure is included in the analysis, however, the elements not included in the examined parts only act as elastic supports. As a result, only the buckling modes of the selected elements appear.

RC design

Cutting of shear force peaks over columns 

The program cuts the shear force peak above the columns when displaying the stresses of the surface elements.

Documentation

Documentation of material and cross-section data 

The documentation of the material and cross-section is refreshed in a new, clear structure and is available in the Report maker when creating PDF files or printing.

Analysis

Analysis parameters in the Tables

The initial parameters of the nonlinear/vibration/dynamic analysis performed are summarized in the Tables.

NEW MODULES

RC8-S module

Fire design of RC domains

The new RC8-S module provides the capability of fire design of RC domains according to Eurocode 2, SIA 262, and NTC standards. RC8-B (released in AxisVM X6) and RC8-S modules provide a comprehensive tool for the fire design of reinforced concrete structures. Considering the fire design parameters of the domains, the software calculates the temperature distribution within the cross-section and takes into account the delamination of the outer damaged concrete layers and the temperature of the flexural reinforcement.

SOIL module

Modelling the interaction between soil and structure

The new SOIL module enables more accurate modelling of the interaction between soil and structure. The analysis of the coupled model allows the stresses and deformations in the soil to be investigated, as well as the effect of soil deformation on the structure. Based on the given borehole patterns, the program is able to generate a soil model built from 3D elements and to automatically determine the Winkler stiffness of the supports.
