NEW FEATURES IN EXISTING MODULES
Utilization of result components for the actual reinforcement.
The utilization of the actual reinforcement is determined based on the capacity curve of the cross-section.
Optional consideration of torsion in the design of RC columns
In the design of reinforced concrete columns, the check for torsion can be switched on/off.
Enhanced shear check of reinforced concrete columns
The biaxial shear check can be disabled in the verification of the RC columns. In addition to the linear summation, a parabolic relationship can also be used for verification.
Punching check considering connecting ribs
The punching check is also available for columns with connecting ribs.
Punching check of column reinforced wall ends/corners
The punching check of wall ends/corners can be performed even if a column is connected to the wall end/corners.
Additional options for the design of footings
The range of verifications taken into account in the design of footings has been extended. The footings can be designed based on a specified set of
Verification of footings against uplift
If an upward force acts on the footing, the program checks whether the self-weight of the footing counterbalances the corresponding external force.
Moment-resisting beam joint with end plate
Beam-to-beam connection with end plate joints. Detailed design calculation is available on request.
Moment-resisting beam-column joint
Moment-resisting beam-column joints with an optional diagonal welded plate. Detailed design calculation is available on request.
Custom setting of μ1 snow load shape coefficient
The snow load shape coefficient μ1 can be modified for flat and mono-pitch roofs.
Roof panels with snow guards
Snow guards can be assigned to roof panels, with the exception of cylindrical roofs.
NEW FEATURES IN BIM
Additional import options
New options are available for importing an IFC model: Overwrite, Add, Update.
Export of special domains
The IFC export option is available for ribbed, hollow core, composite ribbed, and trapezoidal steel deck slab domains.
REVIT – AXISVM
Support of Revit 2023
The supported file versions have been extended
with Revit 2023. AXISVM transfers the model data using the API interface of Revit (Revit 2019 or a newer version is required).
Export of actual reinforcement to Revit 2022 and 2023
With the enhanced transfer the following data and elements are exported:
- Beam elements with their material and
- domains with their material properties
- actual reinforcements
- the analytical model
New interface for V6.0 Rhino/Grasshopper
New features and options
- component for definition of parametric cross-sections
- XLAM domain, references, and component to define spring characteristics
- node-to-node and line-to-line link elements
- additional load options (seismic, snow, wind, fluid, support displacement…)
- launching AXISVM analysis from Grasshopper (linear and nonlinear static, vibration, buckling, and seismic analysis)
- creating steel members
- creating timber members
- optimizing the cross-section of steel and timber members
- certain result components can be
New interface for V3.0 Revit/Dynamo
The components available in the new interface support all AXISVM element and load types.
NEW FEATURES IN THE BASIC PACKAGES
Additional option for domain eccentricities
When setting the eccentricities assigned to domains, the user can specify whether they should be taken into account in the calculation or only included in the drawing as a visual effect.
Spring characteristics of edge hinges
Allows for the definition of edge hinges with spring characteristics, different static and vibration stiffness, and complex/complex nonlinear behaviour modelling
Automatic calculation of the shear center of the structure
The program automatically calculates the shear center of the stories, which are displayed when the model is built.
Automatic self-weight load case
A new self-weight load case is available, which automatically includes the self-weight load of all structural elements in the model.
Allows for merging separate load cases into one load case (in a load group).
Buckling analysis for selected model parts
Program calculates the buckling modes of the selected elements of the structure. The entire model is involved in the calculation, but elements outside the analysed parts act only as elastic supports.
Cutting of shear force peaks over columns
The program cuts the shear force peak above the columns when displaying the stresses of the surface elements.
Documentation of material and cross-section data
The documentation of the material and cross section is refreshed in a new, clear structure and is available in the Report maker when creating PDF files or printing.
Parametric Z section
A parametric Z section is available in the cross section editor
Analysis parameters in the Tables
The initial parameters of the nonlinear/vibration/ dynamic analysis performed are summarized in the Tables.
