The 'Scia Engineer' open platform offers CAE with a unique consistent structural and analysis model for concrete, steel, composite, aluminium and timber structures. The 'Scia Engineer' finite element analysis allows, by its inherited structural CAD model, a direct 2D or 3D analysis of structural plates, walls, shells, frames and any kind of mixed structures of any partner application as Autodesk® Revit®.
The finite elements application 'Scia Engineer' provides Revit users with the enhanced structural analysis functionalities needed to analyze directly 3D models in depth and on his own workstation. Revit users can send the complete structureor any appropriate part of their model to their construction partners that are using the widely appreciated finite elements application 'Scia Engineer'.
The Revit-Scia analysis model contains:
Steel, concrete, composite and timber cross-sections, (curved) beams and columns; (curved) slabs, walls with openings; supports; loads and load cases; user load combinations; …
The Revit structural model is automatically meshed by the proven and powerful 'Scia Engineer' finite elements meshing engine and is completed within 'Scia Engineer' with more advanced analytical features such as seismic analysis, nonlinear analysis, prestressed concrete particularities …
Structures fully optimized within the 'Scia Engineer' open platform are updated from within the Revit environment for any changes or additions from the analytical model through the update engine. Counter wise, structures prepared in the 'Scia Engineer' environment can be completed and revised within Revit for further architectural follow-up.
'Scia Engineer' for Autodesk®
The 'Scia Engineer' Open Platform allows AutoCAD and Revit users to use their Revit, dwg, IFC and vrml files for checking their analysis models to reality! The engineered analysis structure are easily visualized, updated, optimized and re-analyzed within its future environment.
'Scia Engineer' features:
Working graphically with our ‘True Analysis’ feature and intelligent structural objects from simple to complex geometry (beams, columns, walls, shells, slabs...)
‘Parametric Modeling’ functionality with user defined parametric structural objects and customizable user templates.
Coherent build-in ‘Structure 2 Analysis’ integration of a analysis (CAE) and structural (CAD) model.
Reliable calculation results guarantee an indispensable tool for everyday use with our ‘Auto-design’ and ‘Template Analysis’ features, totally in accordance with the latest international design codes (steel, concrete, aluminium, wood…).
Extensive calculation possibilities (linear, second order, dynamic & seismic analysis...) including the newest design techniques e.g. fire safety control of steel / RC structures.
Easy handling of a customized calculation note including ‘Chaptermaker’, dynamic updating and an extended picture gallery, overview drawings and details.
Detailing: design of steel connections, design of concrete reinforcement with ‘SnapCheck’ functionality.
Excellent integration and communication (XML, various industry interfaces).
Appreciated technical support, user guides and adequate training by professional and skilled engineers.
