Calculation Engine

The Calculation Engine in FEM-Design allows you to perform different analysis depending on the module you are using at the time: displacement, internal forces, stresses, stability, imperfections, stability analysis, plastic analysis, eigenfrequencies, and/or seismic analysis.

FEM-Design Calculation Engine Extra Settings

There are some extra FEM-Design Calculation Engine settings available, such as cracked-section analysis, non-linear behaviour, etc. for certain design modules: –

  • Linear static analysis for all structure types
  • Linear elastic and ideal plastic behaviour of supports, edge connections, and trusses
  • Static analysis according to second-order theory for spatial structures, global stability analysis-buckling shapes and critical loads for spatial structures
  • Dynamic analysis-vibration shapes and eigen frequencies for all structure types
  • Seismic calculation-response spectra method for 3D models
  • Non-linear static analysis-supports resisting the only compression
  • Cracking analysis-tracking of the cracking process
  • 3D Solid Mohr-Coulomb soil interaction
  • Plastic analysis for 3D shells made of reinforced concrete and structural steel
