This year we have worked to ensure a varied program in presenting the latest features and advanced capabilities of SOFiSTiK products.
Start with a simple beam bridge to get familiar with parametric bridge design in SOFiPLUS.
Create tendons, define construction stages and perform the design of a beam bridge.
There is no doubt about it – spreadsheet applications are the most used tools by engineers.
To edit the report of a project is one of the most time-consuming parts. And different layouts given from your clients don’t cut down the effort either.
This post covers the last of three steps to perform combination and superposition using the “SOFiSTiK: Superposition Manager – Combination Rules” Task.
A combination rule without actions and loads is like cooking a dish without ingredients.
Running a design requires design load cases dependent on the selected design code. Compiling these load cases by hand is possible and for some projects and specific calculations such as nonlinear analysis necessary.
The first attempt at using new software can be a challenge. Dealing with applications to cover complex topics such as analysis and design of structures doesn’t make it easier.
Checking analysis and design results is an essential detail of an engineer’s work. Hence, it’s important to understand the automatic numbering system of the used software package.
