Stability analysis

scia.a.stability - Stability analysis

Analysis & Results

This module calculates the global buckling mode of a structure under the given loading. Stability calculations are used e.g. to obtain an insight into the buckling mechanisms of a structure, to verify if 2nd order calculations are required, etc.

Advanced geometric non-linear analysis - cable

scia.a.cab_memb - Cables and membranes

Analysis & Results

This module includes advance functionality for geometric non-linear analysis such as cables incl. initial prestressing, membranes and so-called non-linear stability analysis. For stability analysis, non-linearities such as members, only traction/pressure, non-linear springs etc. are taken into account.

Soil interaction

scia.a.soil - Soil interaction

Analysis & Results

C parameters have an influence on the contact tension (and vice versa). The subsidence of the contact layer and the C parameters are influenced by the contact tension - the calculation, based on a Pasternak model, is iterative and determines the occurring settings and the impact on the structure.

Dynamic eigenmodes analysis

scia.a.modal - Modal analysis

Analysis & Results

Calculation of the characteristic frequencies and modes of the member construction. Automatic calculation of the self-weight of the structure. For each characteristic value, the characteristic mode will be calculated with the subspace iteration method.

scia.a.spectral - Seismic spectral analysis

Analysis & Results

As an extension to the calculation of eigenmodes, the advanced dynamics module includes harmonic, seismic and Von Karman vibration analysis as well as direct time integration method. The modal participation factors are indicated. The results can be combined with the results from a static calculation.

sencd.01 concrete design results

scia.d.concrete - Reinforced concrete

Concrete Design

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.
