Combine properties of both steel and concrete to design and analyse their composite action. Perform analysis between floor plates and beams in accordance with local code requirements.
Create virtual wind tunnel simulations for early testing of structural designs for wind loads. Use wind generation results for further analysis or to verify a code-based approach. Help reveal surprising and detrimental wind-induced building responses before structural system changes become costly.
Powerful auto-meshing generation techniques help structural engineers work more easily with the most complex models. Independently manipulate native automatic mesh generation and manual definition of meshing parameters for each panel. Utilise effective structural engineering software that helps to create a high-quality finite mesh.
The Direct Analysis Method (DAM) is an AISC approach for stability design applicable to steel structures of all structural system types. Advantages of DAM implementation include:
Investigate the linear and non-linear behaviour of almost any structure type. Structural engineers can take advantage of simple and effective analysis of static, modal and non-linear structures and run analysis on seismic studies, time history analysis and more.
Fast, dynamic solvers enable you to carry out structural dynamic analysis for structures of any size. Design and optimise efficient analysis algorithms for quad-core and multi-core computer processors. Structural engineers have the calculation speed to deliver accurate engineering analysis results for demanding structures in minutes, rather than hours.
Quickly access more than 60 global sections and materials databases. With an array of 70 built-in design codes, structural engineers can work with country-specific section shapes, imperial or metric units and country-specific building codes within the same integrated model.
Create reinforced concrete design and steel design modules based on more than 40 international steel codes and 30 reinforced concrete codes.
Depending on load duration and type, you can create different defined loads, such as dead, live, wind, or seismic. Apply various types of loads (such as nodal, linear, or planar) to a structure to the defined load cases. Definitions of load combinations from many national standards, both manual and automatic, are also included.
The link between Revit building design software and Robot Structural Analysis Professional software supports an iterative design process and data exchange. Enhance collaboration between designers and engineers and further demonstrate the value of Building Information Modelling (BIM) (US site) to structural engineers.
Support multinational design teams using many languages. Perform structural analysis in one language and create output in another, including English, French, Italian, Portuguese, Romanian, Spanish, German, Russian, Chinese and Japanese. Global users can also use both imperial and metric units simultaneously within the same structural model.
Robot Structural Analysis Professional uses Microsoft Component Object Model (COM) technologies for an open and flexible API.
Flexibly obtain and report structural analysis results. With so many ways to access and present analytical data, structural engineers can more quickly prepare final documentation suited to their needs.
