Since civil structures are frequently designed and constructed with miscellaneous materials (e.g. steel, prefab and in-situ cast concrete), the static system of the structure changes during its erection. This module enables you to calculate structures that consist of 1D and 2D elements in different phases.
This module enables you to introduce tendons with 3D geometry and calculate losses of prestressing. It includes automatic generation of eccentric finite elements for group of tendons and calculation of equivalent load, internal forces and stresses caused by prestressing
In sequential analysis you can select a predefined sequence of different calculations, where the second one starts from the results of the first one. This means that the results from the first analysis are taken as the initial state for the second one.
SCIA Engineer represents a complete tool for the design and checking of reinforced and prestressed structures, enabling the calculation and checking of prestressed and non-prestressed concrete beams, columns, and concrete slabs, even hollow core ones.
You can check if the required longitudinal slab or foundation reinforcement is adequate to resist the local shear force at the support. Moreover, you can proceed with the calculation and design of the required shear reinforcement around the support, if necessary.
When a slab is subject to a concentrated load or to a load acting over a small area, the punching shear resistance of the slab should be checked. SCIA Engineer can deal with concentrated loads from columns or supports that are perpendicular to a slab.
This module allows you to define practical reinforcement in beams, columns, plates and walls. Automatic design of practical reinforcement according to the ultimate limit state for concrete beams and columns; automatic design of the required number of stirrups and longitudinal bars and their spacing.
Analysis of total, immediate and additional deformations in reinforced-concrete structures including the calculation of long-term stiffness according to national codes. Calculation of deflections based on regulations stipulated in standards.
The fire resistance EN 1992-1-2 is a check for both reinforced and prestressed concrete 1D members (beams and columns) according to EN 1992-1-2. It is fully integrated with modules for structural analysis and with modules for checks of reinforced and prestressed concrete members according to EN 1992-1-1.
“Checks of prestressed beams” is an advanced module for those of you who calculate prestressed beams and construction stages. The module support beams of any cross-section modelled in the “Frame-XZ” or “Frame-XYZ” projects. There is no difference between 2D and 3D-structures
