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 or RYTIE-2019). The program automatically applies all formulas of the earthquake regulations for building with one click.

Program can solve structures with frame finite element method, equivalent frame method, modal analysis, equivalent earthquake load analysis, including slab stiffness to system stiffness with shell elements, load transfer from floors to walls and other elements with shell finite elements, confined masonry building analysis (Vertical beams to wall strength and/or taking into account its contribution to the system rigidity), reinforced masonry wall analysis (assigning vertical and horizontal reinforcements into the brick wall in incapable walls as defined in the earthquake code / regulation), reinforced or unreinforced wall verifications that also take into account the moment effect, masonry wall reinforcement with steel mesh and shotcrete or FRP calculation and drawings, One of the greatest advantage of the program according to manual calculations and other masonry programs is that lateral and 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 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 or finite element method optionally. You can expect exact match between manual calculation and program at classic analysis. And very closer results to SAP2000 in finite element analysis. All calculations are made automatically in the program with one click. StatiCAD can perform the above operations without the need for an additional program, it also has additional features such as SAP2000 automation with shell elements, finite element analysis and response spectrum analysis. If desired, the project is exported to the SAP2000 program and after the analysis is made, the results are automatically retrieved and the design calculations is made according to the finite element results of the SAP200 program.
