Quick and easy data access

Program has graphical interface for data entry. Drawn building on the screen can be viewed in three dimensions simultaneously. The program is quite practical for use.

For example , walls and bond beams are drawn at the same time. When the doors/windows drawn in the wall, program automatically divides the wall into two parts, it automatically generates the horizontal bond beams on the doors and windows. It generates a piece of wall on the doors/windows and a piece of wall at the bottom of the window. You can select and edit multiple objects. Modelling process of a building can be completed in 1-2 hours. Reports and drawings can be taken in a single analysis.

Complete and Advanced Structural Analysis

Masonry building can analyzed according to Eurocode (Eurocode8 and Eurocode6) or Turkish Earthquake Regulations (TEC 2007 or TBDY 2018). The program automatically applies all formulas of the earthquake regulations for building with one click.

The greatest advantage of the program according to manual calculations and other masonry programs is that vertical loads can be transferred between building elements and storeys automatically. For masonry buildings load distributions are very important. Since the wall's shear strength is dependent on the vertical stress on the wall. The shear capacity of the walls with low vertical load is much less. The shear capacity of the walls are calculated with fvk=(g/t)*fvk0+0,4*sigmad. Because wall’s earthquake resistance dependent on the vertical load on the wall so walls with less vertical loads has less shear capacity. A seemingly safe wall or building may be inadequate when loads are distributed correctly. The program reports the error rate in the result of analysis if there is an error in a vertical load transfer. At analysis, automatically corrects many of modeling errors. There is only axis dependence between ground floor and foundation. There is no other axis dependence between storeys. So nodes don’t need to be one over the other for load transfer and static calculations. That provides program with great flexibility and enables it to model any type of masonry structures. The program uses analytical models rather than finite element method which is an approximation method. You can expect exact match between manual calculation and program. All calculations are made automatically in the program with one click.

Soluble Building Systems

Orthogonal –Non Orthogonal building systems (horizontal, vertical, or inclined axis)

Structures with half basement

Stepped Structures

Regulations that can be used in buildings Analysis:

Eurocode 8: Design of structures for earthquake resistance

Eurocode 6: Design of masonry structures.

Regulations of the Buildings to be Built in Seismic Zone 2007 (DBYBHY2007)

TBDY2018: Turkish Building Earthquke Regulation 2018

Reported Outcomes

Pre-Analysis Reports

All of the data input parameters are given in the pre-analysis reports.

Postanalysis Reports

The analysis includes the calculations of the earthquake standards, geometry controls , load analysis , slab analysis , seismic loads calculation , shear center calculation, center of mass calculation, foundation subsoil stress and shear capacity , bending capacity , vertical stress and shear stress on the walls.

Strengthening Reports

Strengthened Jacket Shear Force , Strengthened Jacket Shear Capacity Controls , Strengthened Composite Wall Sliding Capacity Control

Performance Analysis Report

Calculation of the building performance level and risk situation, calculation of the risky buildings static/geometrical parameters , calculation of Strengthened condition and current situation , Risky building Management or Obtaining Results that Match the Criteria of Earthquake Management The program calculates and reports all of the static parameters required by the regulations of Eurocode 6 and Earthquake Management. There is no extra calculation needed after the program’s calculation.

Drawing Output

Foundation application plan , wall plan , formwork plan , formwork plan sections , vertical bond beam details , foundation details , horizontal bond beam details , individual strengthening jacket details for each wall ( anchors , strengthening mesh , continuance reinforcement). Drawings can be exported in dwg/dxf format with scans, dimensions and layers without any shape loss.

Basic Features of StatiCAD-Yigma

Easy to use and advanced graphics interface.

Overall structure analysis in one step and side by side Project drawings with one touch

Half basement / stepped building analysis

Optionally , vertical bond beams can be considered as contributors to the seismic behavior of the building

Strengthened and unstrengthened calculation reports and performance reports can be made with a single project file.

Strengthening jackets can contribute to the wall compression capacity

Determine specific stiffness coefficient for walls

Load factors can be changed manually for compressive stress controls and shear stress controls.

Instead of establishing reinforced concrete analogies , StatiCAD-Yigma uses the rules of the masonry building in the earthquake regulations.

Determining vertical wall loads with yield line theory in vertical load analysis.

Compression and shear stress safety controls for the walls.

Different material properties can be entered for each wall, values can be taken automatically from seismic regulations or, experimental values can be entered.

Strengthening jacket reinforcement calculation, strengthening drawing ( steel mesh, jacket drawing and anchor details in the wall section)

With the included drawing editor, you can edit the drawings and export them dwg without any loss.

Capable of giving offset value to the elements.
