Client: Kerakoll - The GreenBuilding Company

GeoForce One Software was developed by ASDEA for Kerakoll. GeoForce One provides advanced and comprehensive tools to design and analyze reinforced concrete, prestressed concrete, timber, and masonry structural elements. Learn more about GeoForce One


With GeoForce One, users can design and analyze reinforced concrete and prestressed concrete. Timber and masonry cross-sections with standard and generic shapes can also be analyzed by the software.


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


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 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


With GeoForce One, users can model and analyse a variety of structural elements, including reinforced concrete beams/columns, beam-column joints, masonry walls, lintels, arches, and vaults.


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


Definition of loads and boundary conditions | Static nonlinear analysis in two stages: initial stage (ie. before the application of the strengthening system, under load control) and 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 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 postprocessor for external numerical solvers. The Asdea Software team has developed this innovative solution for all types of users who want to remain competitive in their market. The MPC preprocessor features advanced CAD modeling tools, meshing algorithms, and an extensible scripting interface to generate input files for the external solvers. The MPC postprocessor offers a comprehensive set of tools. For preparing plots, tables, and graphs of the results generated by the external solvers. We have also developed an extended version of MPC: STKO (Scientific ToolKit for OpenSees).

The MPC workflow is composed of three consecutive steps, the preprocessor, the postprocessor, and the processor manager, organized in a unique user interface. The MPC’s modeling workflow has a scriptable Python interface, which allows users to customize it. Using the Python code, users can easily define all components, from materials to sections. These entities will be reflected in the MPC workflow where they can be accessed by the end-user.


main features of the pre and postprocessor


Basic and advanced CAD modeling commands for creating and manipulating points, curves, surfaces and solids | Import-export support for common CAD file formats | Choice of external solvers | Python-based interface for extending preprocessor capabilities and generation of user interface objects | Material properties, beam and shell cross-sections, generic attributes, loads, boundary conditions, and analysis algorithms | Generation of the computational mesh of the model


Generate input files | Launch the external solvers | Monitor analyses


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


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

Logica3 Software was developed by Asdea Software to analyse the structural reinforcement of reinforced concrete nodes using the SIS.MI.C.A method. The reinforcement of corner and facade nodes can be designed through the multiple insertion of the nodes to be analyzed. Users can insert element geometries, material properties, and acting stresses into the free software version and analyze the existing nodes to determine if they respect the compression and traction tests.

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, a worldwide leader in the distribution of pre-insulated aluminum air ducts. The user interface guides the end-user through 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. The minimum amount of vertical and horizontal strengthening system is automatically computed by the solver using optimization algorithms.
The results of the FEM analysis can be visualized at any time, so that experienced users and analysts can understand the effects of a local change in the model.

PCM VERSION 2020.2.1

AsdeaSoft helps Aedes develop a module for Reinforced Concrete (RC) for Aedes.PCM

PCM, or Progettazione di Costruzione in Muratura (Masonry Construction Design), is a BIM software dedicated to the construction of all types of masonry buildings. The software is a parametric 2D/3D CAD, which uses structural schematization to then analyze the static and seismic safety of the structure. Learn more about PCM.
What makes the new update innovative?
PCM version 2020.2.1 boasts new features for RC elements, including the reinforcement of beams and columns with Fiber Reinforced Plastic (FRP), pushover analysis, and local element capacities. A team from ASDEA assisted Aedes in the development of the theory and the validation of the newly implemented features, specifically on the newly developed nonlinear plastic hinges, to model existing and strengthened structural elements. To read about the update and the specific theoretical work provided by ASDEA, see the update manual (in Italian).
The update introduces the reinforcement of beams and columns in RC through the application of composite materials FRP in compliance with CNR-DT 200/2013 “Instructions for the Design, Execution and Control of Static Consolidation Interventions through the use of Fibroreinforced Composites.” The arrangement of reinforcement strips on structural elements can be specified during structural modeling by acting on certain properties. The input method varies depending on the type of element (RC column or beam) and on the type of cross-section (rectangular, circular, or T-shaped).
