Improvements and new features introduced in SeismoStruct version 2018

  1. New chord rotation and shear capacity checks according to EC8, the Italian National Seismic Code (NTC-08) and the Greek Seismic Interventions Code (KANEPE). All limit states are now supported.
  2. Definition of the code-based parameters (primary/secondary members, knowledge level and confidence factor, safety factors etc) according to the codes
  3. Automatic calculation of the target displacement in pushover analysis (conventional and adaptive) according to different codes
  4. Ability to check only the core area with the concrete strain performance criterion
  5. Ability to save the results in just text output without the binary output
  6. New more user-friendly dialog box for loading accelerograms
  7. Ability to deactivate warning messages, which is important while running multiple analyses with SeismoBatch
  8. Ability to suppress warnings at the beginning of the analysis, which is particularly useful in SeismoBatch
  9. Ability to simultaneously run more than one analyses in SeismoBatch
  10. The warning messages at the beginning of the analysis are automatically closed after 2 min if there is no input by the user; this is particularly useful in SeismoBatch, since the sequence of analyses does not stop if a warning message is shown
  11. Seven new sections: L & T column sections, jacketed L, T & circular, jacketed asymmetric rectangular section and jacketed T-beam
  12. FRP wrapping in column sections, large library with FRP wraps available in the market
  13. Ability to display the section’s shear reinforcement
  14. Ability to use concrete material models with the rss section
  15. Building Modeller: 7 new sections (L & T column sections, jacketed L, T & circular, jacketed T-beam and compound walls); Stairs; Inclined slabs; Ability to specify the slab’s type of support, i.e. where the slab loads are distributed; Ability to specify the slab’s reinforcement directions; FRP wrapping of columns
  16. Additional mass can be defined for the frame element classes
  17. Display of user-defined damage patterns in the deformed shape of the post-processor, upon reaching of the specified performance criteria
  18. Ability to save and load the plot settings in the post-processor plots. In this way, it is very easy to export the format of one graph to the others
  19. Ability to show max, min and Abs.max in all the plots of the post-processor
  20. Ability to sort nodes and elements in the lists of the post-processor
  21. Ability to cut planes in the 3D plots of the post-processor for better visualisation of the results (both deformed shape and action effect diagrams)
  22. Fixed problem with the User Account Control (UAC) persistent warning message when opening the program
  23. Corrected problems with network installations
  24. Fixed bugs with the malfunctioning of the selection and editing of stress-points
  25. Fixed IDA bug when using performance criteria
  26. Fixed problem with wrong bricks orientation in short walls
  27. Fixed problem with wrong definition of reinforcement strain performance criterion in files created with the Building Modeller
  28. Fixed problem with  wrong label in Inertia Forces post-processor plot
  29. Fixed problem with malfunctioning performance criteria in steel structures created with the Wizard facility
  30. Fixed problem with initialisation of the link elements in IDA
  31. Fixed bug with wrong extraction of link rotational deformations in SeismoBatch
