In addition to the main software, that is dedicated to the global analysis of the structure, there are the following optional modules available. You can buy only the necessary ones, optimizing costs. You can always integrate the 3Muri software with the modules you need.
When the box-like behavior is not sure due to a lack of connections between floors and walls, verification of local mechanisms (the control of the possible separation of walls out of their floor) is necessary. You can use the module Local Mechanisms to verify this, starting from the model used for the global verification. Integrated the model with geometric data, loads and constraints, you can perform the local verifications, just specifying the local area.
The Sensitivity analysis is a calculation method useful to obtain a better understanding of the structural functioning and accurate planning of the site investigation plan. As known, doubts during modeling directly affect the evaluation of seismic safety. The sensitivity analysis methodology includes the identification of parameters groups that express the uncertainty degree, through the execution of multiple different non-linear analysis it identifies a level of sensitivity for each parameter in order to furnish a weight in terms of importance. The result is the acquisition of a better knowledge of the structure’s characteristics and the single elements contribution to the global functioning.
The module allows to speed up the calculation by selecting the calculation method and using the multiprocessor. Two different solver parameters are now available: the selection of the calculation method by dense matrices and or sparse matrices and the use of multiprocessor. 3Muri software performs the calculation using the FEM method (finite element method), that needs to know the stiffness matrix K. Performing operations using the sparse matrix algorithms, that can be easily compressed, makes the calculations faster with a less memory use. With the use of the multiprocessor you can perform each different analysis on a different PC processor, saving time.
The EC6 module makes available the Eurocode 6 for static verification.
The EC8 module makes available the Eurocode 8 for seismic verification.
Connecting with Axis VM
3Muri is a complete software with all the functionality for checking masonry and mixed structures. To complete the analysis and design with additional elements such as: special foundations (platee, poles, etc.), design new beams, pillars, sets, insert stairs or new plants, you can use Axis VM software directly connected to 3Muri. With Axis VM, you can automatically import what is done in 3Muri, obtaining an equivalent model for further processing.
