DESIGN AND ANALYSIS OF CROSS-SECTIONS

With GeoForce One the user can design and analyze reinforced concrete and prestressed concrete. The analysis also includes timber and masonry cross section with standard or generic shapes.

CROSS-SECTION DEFINITION

Definition of cross-sections with standard shape (rectangular or circular) through ad-hoc editors. | Definition of cross-sections with generic shape by means of an integrated CAD environment. | Definition of steel rebars. | Definition flexural, shear, confinement and torsional strengthening systems. | Definition of reinforced jacketing. | Definition of one or multiple load cases.

CROSS-SECTION ANALYSIS

Combined biaxial-bending and axial-force checks: initial state before the application of the strengthening system, SLS, ULS. | Confinement, shear and torsion checks: for RC cross-sections, the concrete constitutive model accounts for the confinement effect. | Identification of the main features of the software. | Checks with one or multiple load cases.

VISUALIZATION AND EXPORT OF ANALYSIS RESULTS

Visualization and export of detailed reports. | Summary of used materials and strengthening systems. | Check results for initial state and SLS. | Check results for ULS before and after the application of Kerakoll strengthening systems. | Visualization of 2D and 3D interaction domains. | Visualization of moment-curvature response.



DESIGN AND ANALYSIS OF STRUCTURAL ELEMENTS

Finally, with GeoForceOne the user can model and analyze structural elements such as reinforced concrete beams/columns and also beam-column joints. Moreover elements like masonry walls, lintels, arches and vaults.

ELEMENT DEFINITION

Definition of structural element with ad-hoc editors. | Elements are modeled with a variable number of cross-sections and their location along the element axis. | Modeling of strengthened ribs for arches and vaults.

FEM NONLINEAR STATIC ANALYSIS

Definition of loads and boundary conditions. | Static nonlinear analysis in two stages: initial stage, before the application of the strengthening system, under load control, final stage, with the strengthened structural element, under displacement control. | Beam/Column Finite Element with a fiber cross-section for the numerical integration of the cross-sectional response. | Nonlinear constitutive models based on plasticity and continuum damage theories.

VISUALIZATION AND POST-PROCESSING

Visualization of the analysis results of each stage. | Visualization of Contour Plots for nodal and elemental results. | Visualization of Contour Plots for sectional results: stress and strain in each point of the fiber cross-section, material status (elastic, plastic, damages, cracked, crushed, etc...), usage factors. | Load-displacement plot.

A versatile pre and post processor

MPC | Multi Purpose CAE |

MPC (Multi Purpose CAE) is a versatile pre and post processor for external numerical solvers. Asdea Software team has developed this innovative solution for all types of users who want to remain competitive in their market. It is possible thanks to main features. First of all, The MPC pre-processor offers advanced CAD modeling tools, meshing algorithms and an extensible scripting interface to generate input files for the external solvers. Then, the MPC post-processor offers a comprehensive set of tools. These are preparing plots, tables and graphs of the results which the external solvers generate. Moreover, MPC has an extended version: STKO (Scientific ToolKit for OpenSees).

Especially relevant is MPC modeling workflow. It has a scriptable (Python) interface which allows the user to customize it.  Thanks to Python code, the user can easily define all the components, from materials to sections. After that, MPC exposes these new entities on its workflow and thus to the end-user too.

In conclution, MPC workflow consists of three consecutive steps gathered in a unique user interface. They are: the pre-processor, the post-processor and also the processor manager.

WHY MPC IS SO INNOVATIVE

pre and post processor main features

PRE-PROCESSOR

Basic and advanced CAD modeling commands for creating and manipulating points, curves, surfaces and solids. | Import-export support for common CAD file formats. | Choise of the external solver. | Python-based interface to extend the pre-processor capabilities and to generate user interface objects for the input data of the external solver. They are, for instance, material properties, beam and shell cross sections, generic attributes, loads, boundary conditions and analysis algorithms. | Generation of the computational mesh of the model.

PROCESSOR MANAGER

Generate input files. | Launch the external solvers. | Monitor analyses.

POST-PROCESSOR

Read one or multiple output databases. | Prepare simple or composite representations/animations of the results. | Contour plots, volume plots, vector plots, streamlines, beam diagrams, etc.. | Extract tables and graphs from the database. | Manipulate the results by means of built-in operations (sum, avarage, envelope, etc..) or custom python-based scripts..


LOGICA3 SOFTWARE

Software for the analysis and verification of
reinforced concrete nodes with SIS.MI.C.A. system

Logica3 Software was developed by Asdea Software to analyze the structural reinforcement of reinforced concrete nodes with the SIS.MI.C.A. method. It will be possible to design the reinforcement of corner and facade nodes through multiple insertion of all the nodes to be analyzed. With user-defined data (element geometries, material properties and stresses acting), it will be possible to proceed with the free software version to analyze the existing nodes and understand if they respect the compression and traction tests.

P3 DUCTSIMULATION

Structural Behavior Of Ducts in
Pre-insulated Aluminum With Seismic Actions

P3ductsimulation was developed by ASDEA Software for the design and verification of ventilation ducts developed by P3, worldwide leadership in the distribution of pre-insulated aluminum air ducts. The user interface guides the end-user throughout the process of defining the model using a task-based data panel. All changes made to the input data are immediately reflected in the CAD model and in the FEM model in real-time. The minimum amount of vertical and horizontal strengthening system is automatically computed by the solver be means of optimization algorithms.
The results of the FEM analysis can be visualized at any time in real-time, so that experienced users and analysts can readly understand the effects of a local change in the model.
