02/08/2021 – Ver. 86 – Improved verifications of framed walls, updating of KLH CLT panels, addition of Gyproc, Siniat, Rigips, Fermacell and WISA panels, addition of accidental eccentricity in report

In the latest version of the software we added these new features:

  • Improvement of the calculation checks of framed walls: now the software, for the checks reported in chapter 9.2.4.2 of Eurocode 5, allows to consider panels with a height lower than the height of the wall.
  • KLH CLT panels updated: we updated the stratigraphy of the KLH CLT panels.
  • Inclusion of Gyproc Habito: the gypsum plasterboard for structural use Gyproc Habito is now available and it can be used as sheathing panel in framed walls.
  • Inclusion of Siniat LaDura Plus, LaDura Premium e Nida Twarda Plus: Siniat plasterboard panels for structural use have been added and can now be used as bracing of the framed walls.
  • Inclusion of Rigips Rigidur H: the gypsum fibreboard for structural use Rigips Rigidur H is now available and it can be used as sheathing panel in framed walls.
  • Inclusion of Fermacell Powerpanel HD: Fermacell cement-bonded panels for structural use have been added and can now be used as bracing of framed walls.
  • Inclusion of WISA: the archive of plywood panels for structural use for the bracing of framed walls has been expanded with the addition of WISA products.
  • Added the accidental eccentricity in the calculation report.
  • Bug fixing and small improvements.

 

 

 

31/05/2021 – Ver. 84 – New graphic functions (dynamic input, possibility to edit the vertices of the floors), addition of Schillinger XLAM panels, added the concrete anchors archive, improved the verifications of the concrete anchors, updated connection interfaces and added the possibility to import polylines in dxf

In the latest version of the software we added these new features:

  • Dynamic input: thanks to the introduction of the dynamic input it is now possible to draw the structural elements in a simple and intuitive way by entering the length of the element and the angle with respect to the main axes.
  • Possibility to edit the vertices of the floors: the new feature is now available that allows you to modify, add or delete the coordinates of the points that identify the floor element.
  • Added Schillinger XLAM panels to the software archives.
  • Added the concrete anchors archive relating to mechanical and chemical anchors.
  • Updated connection definition interfaces.
  • Improved checks of concrete anchors: the verifications relating to mechanical and chemical anchors are now performed on the group of concrete anchors, with the possibility for the user to edit the value of the characteristic resistance and the relative safety coefficient.
  • Bug fixing and small improvements.

 

27/01/2021 – Ver. 83 – New module for the seismic risk classification of the buildings, the Soltech connections were added and the Essepi CLT panels were updated

In the latest version of the software we added these new features:

  • Seismic risk classification module: thanks to the additional module “Seismic risk classification of the constructions” now you can modify the magnitude of the seismic action used in the analysis by defining the percentage of modification of the maximum horizontal acceleration of the soil ag. It is also possible to automatically calculate the capacity Peak Ground Acceleration PGAc of the building and print the seismic risk classification certificate. The calculation method used is the conventional method of Annex A of the Italian Ministerial Decree n° 58 of 28 February 2017 and subsequent amendments “Guidelines for the classification of the seismic risk of buildings”.
  • Essepi CLT panels updated: we updated the stratigraphy of the Essepi CLT panels and the material properties in accordance with the new ETA
  • Soltech connections added: the range of Soltech connections and anchors is now available, including hold-downs, angle brackets, punched metal plates, screws, nails and staples.
  • Bug fixing and small improvements

 

 

22/09/2020 – Ver. 81 – New Borga Italia and Simpson Strong-Tie connections, automatic calculation of loads in San Marino, Pfeifer CLT panels added, updating of Stora Enso CLT panels, improvement of the vibration checks of the floors, addition of the national annexes of Romania and added the possibility to insert loads and frame thicknesses lower than in previous versions

In the latest version of the software we added new features:

  • We added the possibility to define the geographical position within the Republic of San Marino. If the user geolocates the building within the territory of the Republic of San Marino, the software automatically calculates the actions acting on the building: wind, snow and seismic action.
  • We added new connections to the archives: Borga Italia and Simpson Strong-Tie. Specifically, the new connections by Borga Italia and some new connections by Simpson Strong-Tie have been added.
  • We added Pfeifer CLT panels to software archives
  • We updated the CLT archives with the new Stora Enso data
  • Improvement of the vibration checks of the floors: we added the possibility to take into account the transverse bending stiffness of the floor also for the calculation of its fundamental frequency f1. In the previous version, the transverse load-carrying effect was considered only in the calculation of the effective width.
  • We added the Romanian standard. The National Annexes of Romania have been added
  • Changes to the input data – values of the acting loads: it is now possible to use values of loads lower than the default ones proposed by the Eurocodes to better adapt to local standards
  • Changes to the input data – width of framed wall elements: it is now possible to use studs and frame elements with a width of less than 40 mm to better adapt to customer needs
  • Bug fixing and small improvements
