GEOFORCE ONE Software

Asdea Software meets Kerakoll

Geoforce One Software

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

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.
