Training example

This training is based on a simple 2 storeys concrete structure, each floor supported by walls and columns and stiffened by beams.

Preparing the model

Before performing calculation, it is important to correctly prepare the Revit model.

Geometrical properties

Since the calculation model is derived from the Revit formwork model, it is important to be able to control and adjust the geometry of the analytical model.

Calculation properties

Once the geometry of the analytical model is set, additional information is required to have a full calculation model.

Analysis

With a complete calculation model, several analyses can be performed on the model:

  • Linear analysis of the 3D model

  • Linear load take-down via 2D model

  • Linear analysis of the 3D model with effect of construction stages

3D linear analysis

Analysis of the global model.
