How to use Section Calculator tool in Graitec Advance Design 01
In some specific projects, users encounter members with irregular sections and non-standard shapes. It is necessary to verify the behaviour of these sections under different load types to assure the stability and failure of the structure. A section calculator tool is handy and useful to evaluate the cross-section properties. Graitec Advance Design has the corresponding tool which is called section...

Super elements and continuous slabs in Graitec Advance Design 2022 image 01
Super element is a compound object created by combining several linear members for design purpose. Among many advantages, the use of a continuous member can be helpful at some locations to obtain better design and detailing of the structure. In fact, continuous members over several spans with same section would increase the design capacity which will result in more economic design and less materia...

Design and analysis reinforced concrete slab with opening 01
Slab design and analysis can be a complicated task for designers and engineers, specially if the slab needs to have openings and cuts so they need to use simplified methods to address these kinds of projects. Nevertheless, the more complicated the models the less effective are these methods, especially for the slabs with large opening or cuts. Clause 13.10.10 of A23.3-19 provides instructions to d...

Slab concrete design using Strip method in Graitec Advance Design 2022

Blog-Slab-concrete-design-using-Strip-method-in-Graitec-Advance-Design Read all about Slab concrete design using Strip method in Graitec Advance Design in our blog.
Slab concrete design using Strip method in Graitec Advance Design 1
Strip method is a lower bound approach used to determine the moment field that fulfils equilibrium requirements, which leads to adequate and sufficient plastic behavior of the slab. Therefore, it became a practical design method that deliver the needed reinforcement in an economic way and simple to use even for complicated shapes. Discovered by Swedish scientist Hillervborg in 1956, the theory was...

Advance Design buckling verification

Advance-Design-Buckling-Verification Advance Design Buckling Verification
AD buckling verification pic1
The concept of effective length is widely used by practising engineers and represents an important step in the design process of members under compressive forces, therefore a state of art method has been established. One of these practical procedures to define the buckling length factor is the alignment chart method. Most engineers use this method in lieu of an actual stability analysis in the int...
