STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS AND DESIGN
CSI SAP2000 Features:
SAPFire® Analysis Engine
CSI solvers have been tried and tested by the industry for over 45 years. The SAPFire Analysis Engine can support multiple 64-bit solvers for analysis optimization and can perform both eigen analysis and Ritz analysis. Parallelization options are available to take advantage of multiple processors.
SAP2000 offers a single user interface to perform modeling, analysis, design, and reporting. The customizable SAP2000 interface allows users to define window layouts and toolbar layouts.
DirectX graphics have been enhanced for quality and speed. Lightning-fast DirectX graphics with full 2D and 3D drafting and selection capability. DirectX graphics with hardware-accelerated graphics allow for navigation of models with fly-throughs and fast rotations.
Sophisticated and efficient meshing techniques
Engineers have many options when it comes to mesh generation in SAP2000. Notable meshing features include the ability to merge independently defined meshes among frame, shell and solid objects, coordinate tessellation with object orientation, and observe material boundaries to establish effective aspect ratios.
SAP2000 offers a wide range of code-based design features for steel frame, concrete frame, cold form steel, and aluminum frame.
