Structural Analysis

  • Structural Analysis
    It was almost 40 years ago when structural analysis methods and technologies were subject to a major innovation: enabled by the personal computer. It became widely available, as promoted on engineering diplomas of those graduating in leading universities, that engineers began adopting commercial software to a large degree, benefiting from graphical interfaces of the MS […]

    Knowing how to use Microsoft® Office Excel® is one of the essential skills and important tools for structural engineers when designing structures. At the end of the day, engineers rely on the calculation engines they use, so Excel is a great way to ‘gut check’ the output from their analysis and design solutions and to […]

  • What’s New
    With Autodesk University 2019 unfolding this week, it’s a perfect time to introduce new functionalities in Dynamo that will empower structural engineers to bring automation into their steel connection workflows. With the Revit 2020.2 point release, new Dynamo nodes and sample scripts bridge the gap between structural analysis and modelling phases, enabling standardization and faster […]

  • What’s New
    Written by:  Harlan Brumm, Sasha Crotty, Ian Molloy, Pawel Piechnik, Martin Schmid, David Smolker  In our second point release for Revit 2020, we’re focused on productivity, with new automation workflows in Dynamo, faster ways to view, select, and edit schedules, and navigation tools that will have you flying through your model with the greatest of ease. Remember, you can access […]

    In the Part 1 of this topic I demonstrated how to leverage the portal frame Dynamo geometry to create its analytical model representation in Robot Structural Analysis Professional.  I also introduced the Structural Analysis for Dynamo package that enables parametric modeling and structural analysis workflows in Dynamo and Robot Structural Analysis Professional. I ended the […]

    In my previous post I showed you how to create a fully parametrized portal frame geometry in the Dynamo environment. After the Dynamo geometry is set, you can create the analytical model representation of this geometry in the Robot Structural Analysis Professional environment. The Structural Analysis for Dynamo package enables parametric modeling and structural analysis […]

  • Engineering and Design
    Structural engineers are using BIM to improve their design workflows and enhance collaboration with other stakeholders on projects. However, when it comes to performing analysis and design, structural engineers often face the following challenges: Little time to explore the best design option due to the use of fragmented analysis and design methods Insufficient coordination between […]
