SCIA Engineer 17 and 17.1 bring a large number of new features and improvements dedicated to Boosting your Productivity
Powered by cutting-edge technologies, the new version of SCIA Engineer gives you higher speed, increased overall efficiency and transparency to power your day-to-day work as well as challenging and special projects.
The newly developed enhancements spread over five areas:
Concrete design: comprehensive and robust solution for the design of concrete columns, beams, slabs and walls featuring an efficient, logical and time-saving workflow.
Steel design: economical design, clear and verifiable reports, and increased speed in the design of steel structures.
BIM: effective collaboration with partners, real-time task management.
Loads and load generators: easily verifiable and more versatile automated load definition.
Overall usability: increased efficiency in the day-to-day work, excellent understanding of structure behaviour with new extended display options, and wider international application thanks to added Eurocode's national annexes.
Rigid in-plane diaphragms combined with tributary-area distribution for gravity loads offer a good approximation of the actual behaviour of composite slabs leading to clear and verifiable results obtained for a reduced computation time.
Improved functionality and workflow for composite design according to US codes including automatic creation of staged load combinations, enhanced design code related settings and simpler more efficient modeling process.
