AXISVM X7r3 - New Features in Existing modules (Part 1)


Determining the required amount of reinforcement based on allowed crack width

In SLS combinations, the program calculates the required amounts of reinforcements based on the set limits for crack widths. It allows for flexible control over where and in which direction crack widths are limited.

Simultaneous consideration of applied and calculated reinforcements in nonlinear analysis (optional)

When this option is enabled, during nonlinear analysis, the greater value between the calculated and applied reinforcement will be taken into account.

Utilization of result components for the actual reinforcement

The utilization of the actual reinforcement is determined based on the capacity curve of the cross-section.


Documentation of the applied shear reinforcement used in the design calculation

In the Actual Beam Reinforcement tab, the checking of the user-defined stirrups is documented in the design calculation.

Optional consideration of torsion in the design of RC columns

In the design of reinforced concrete columns, the check for torsion can be switched on/off.

Enhanced shear check of reinforced concrete columns

The biaxial shear check can be disabled in the verification of the RC columns. In addition to the linear summation, a parabolic relationship can also be used for verification.


Punching analysis results can be displayed as new result components in the model window as well

Punching check considering connecting ribs

The punching check is also available for columns with connecting ribs.

Punching check of column reinforced wall ends/corners

The punching check of wall ends/corners can be performed even if a column is connected to the wall end/corners.


Additional options for the design of footings

The range of verifications taken into account in the design of footings has been extended. The footings can be designed based on a specified set of verifications.

Verification of footings against uplift

If an upward force acts on the footing, the program checks whether the self-weight of the footing counterbalances the corresponding external force.


Extension of stress-strain analysis to virtual beams


Custom fire curves for reinforced concrete elements

It is suitable for modeling designer-specified fire curves, as well as calculated through fire simulations or gas temperatures measured fire curves.

Modified hydrocarbon fire curve for reinforced concrete elements

New fire curve for fire design of reinforced concrete elements.


New exposure type when specifying fire load

The sides of the cross-section exposed to the fire can be adjusted as required (for example, when positioned against a wall or in a corner).


More accurate lateral torsional buckling moment values

The program considers the semi-rigid end joint stiffness of the connected beams when determining the lateral support stiffness.


Modified hydrocarbon fire curve for steel elements

New fire curve for fire design of steel elements.

New exposure type when specifying fire load


The buckling and lateral torsional buckling checks can be optionally enabled/disabled.

Design of double-tapered beam as one desing member

A double-tapered beam can be defined as a single design member, simplifying the design process and providing clearer documentation.

Extension of design of curved beams

A beam consisting of straight and curved sections can be specified as a single design member, simplifying the design process and providing clearer documentation.
