DESIGN AND ANALYSIS OF CROSS-SECTIONS

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.

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

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.

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 (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 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 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.

WHY IS MPC IS SO INNOVATIVE

main features of the pre and postprocessor

PREPROCESSOR

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

PROCESSOR MANAGER

Generate input files | Launch the external solvers | Monitor analyses

POSTPROCESSOR

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 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.

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, 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.
