Αnalysis of steel and composite structures taking into account the effect of the connection stiffness

  • Ημερομηνία: 03/12/2014

The ConSteel applies the finite element method for all the calculations using several element types. Analysis model is automatically generated based on the completely separated engineering model. take into account the effect of the connection stiffness of joints created in the csJoint modul during the analysis.

 

The analysis of the structural model can be the most "black box" type phase of the design process for the engineer, and additionally the modern structural standards usually define the appropriate and required analysis type for the used design formula.

The ConSteel applies the finite element method for all the calculations using the following element types:
  • 14 DOF thin-walled finite elements for steel members. Element including the warping of the section
  • Conventional 12 DOF finite elements for reinforced concrete and composite members
  • Triangular shell element for surface members
  • Tension-only bar and 3-node link element

 

The great variety of calculation possibilities includes first and complete second order (not only P-D effect) analysis; flexural-, torsional-, and lateral-torsional buckling solutions; local buckling analysis of slender steel members built from shell elements; static and dynamic eigenvalue analysis, buckling sensitivity analysis and earthquake calculation based on elastic response spectrum.

ConSteel is able to take into account the effect of the connection stiffness of joints created in the csJoint modul during the analysis.

The exceptionally fast and robust equation solvers yield optimal calculation time even for unusually huge models.
