Code-defined checks for chord rotation and shear capacity limited to one capacity check for each capacity check type (i.e. combination of Code and Limit State) and to up to 20 members per capacity checks
Code-defined checks for chord rotation and shear capacity without any limitation
20 materials models for concrete, steel, FRP materials, masonry and others
72 reinforced concrete, steel, composite and masonrysection types
Four different fibre-based inelastic frame elements
Geometric nonlinearities and material inelasticity are considered
Distributed plasticity models to accurate model the distribution of inelasticity along the height of large walls
Nonlinear link element with 31 nonlinear response curves
Nonlinear model for infill panels
Masonry element
SSI Macro-elements for Shallow Footings and for Pile Foundations
Elastomeric Bearing Element and Friction Pendulum Bearing/System element
Automatic adjustment (decrease and increase) of the load step that ensures numerical stability and accuracy even at very high strain levels
Detailed and intuitive presentation of the analytical results (deformations, action effects, curvatures, stresses, strains); tables charts and 3D plots are available
3D plots with the deformed shapes and visible locations of plastic hinges and damage; AVI movies to illustrate the sequence of structural deformation
Automatic calculation of the target displacement
Checks presented on a table and on the 3D plot; easy identification with colours of the failed members
Easy copying of all the data, tables and plots to any Windows application
Ability to quickly create a very large number of input models through the SPF creator facility
SeismoStruct Batch facility giving the ability to automatically execute numerous analyses in sequence
Special feature for immediately sending a model to Seismosoft in cases of convergence or modelling difficulties in order to receive assistance by our team of specialists
