Advance Design Software
Advance Design was specifically developed for industry professionals that require a superior solution for the structural analysis and design of Reinforced Concrete and Steel structures.
Advance Design features include easy modeling, a powerful FEM analysis engine, top-level design wizards, automated post-processing of results and automated reports. Achieve a new level of computer-assisted engineering with Advance Design!
Display mode of elements as linear contour, hidden faces or realistic rendering
Elements snap points enable different actions: stretch, trim or extend, copy, move, etc.
Use of multiple viewports enable simultaneous work in several viewpoints and visualization modes
Ability to input elements in a 2D workplane or in a user defined coordinate system (Cartesian or polar)
Level concept: input a column using a single click, a wall using two
Wide range of linear element types: pre-stressed cables, ties, gaps, etc.
Advanced meshing engine: grid or Delaunay mesh algorithm, finite elements with 3, 4, 6 or 9 nodes, progressive meshing, refinement tools, global mesh parameters
Static, dynamic, non-linear analyses, large displacements, generalized buckling, etc.
Extended solver capabilities due to enhanced memory management
Automated post-processing and updating of all result types (finite elements, reinforced concrete, steelwork) within a fully integrated environment
Several post-processing methods: graphical results, result curves, stresses diagrams, calculation reports
Recording of graphical animation, either of the input model or the analysis model
Fully customizable design reports: styles, tables and graphical images, cover sheet, user input text, linked documents, etc.
The design template concept allows for the grouping of elements by their design properties: concrete quality, cracking hypotheses, concrete cover, etc.
Calculation of theoretical reinforcement sections of linear and planar elements
Determination of 3D interaction curves on an arbitrary section
Obtainment of the theoretical reinforcement ratios
Global design reports include the concrete results
The design template concept allows for the grouping of elements by their design properties: buckling hypotheses, lateral-buckling restraints, deflections verification, etc.
Shapes optimization starting from a predefined shapes library and using an automated calculation cycle: FE calculations and successive optimizations
Global design reports include the steel results
