As the Robot Structural Analysis team, we want to show you our commitment to improving your experience with Robot Structural Analysis software. We are working hard on developing a more robust foundation for future versions of this tool. This work is happening below the surface, and as structural engineers, you know how important a solid foundation is for success.

While you’re waiting for bigger changes, we thank you for your patience and express our gratitude by releasing a mid-year update to address the issues that are important to your work.

This update contains the following important and critical changes:

  • Eurocode design codes for Reinforced Concrete and Steel design have been updated to the current editions.

Reinforced Concrete Design

Steeel Design

  • Footfall analysis according to SCI P354 is now updated to Revised Edition of February 2009

Footfall analysis

  • Major issues have been addressed in Reinforcement Concrete design of Beams and Columns according to ACI 318-11
  • Code-checking of steel connections according to Eurocodes 3 has been improved
  • Verification of concrete cone failure for groups of anchor bolts is fixed
  • Model display when using section planes has been improved
  • … and many more.

    Very nice to see something happening to RSA, but a shame that we already lost 10 years of development next to other structural software. Hope Ruslana is going to be the one to turn the tide :) So many functions can be better and more logic to this software(2018 expectations)

      Thank you, Thor! I wish I had your superpowers :)


    What a pitty that some comments are removed even if they were globally very positif about the software.


      Excuse me on the blog of Bim and Beam where i proposed to publisch a road map for RSA

  6. Great news to have some developments in RSA and some Hope for the future developments. Go ahead. We are really at the point to give up with this great software. Your work and message give a light to the long time dark tunnel in the structural analysis field in Autodesk. Thank you and for another great news in RSA developments. Wassim

  7. Good work, Finally I saw a post regarding RSA in BIM and BEAM blog first time. Hope you will update the ACI Code too in the future version...!!!
