A parametric Z section is available in the cross-section editor
Additional option for domain eccentricities
When setting the eccentricities assigned to domains, the user can specify whether they should be taken into account in the calculation or only included in the drawing as a visual effect.
Spring characteristics of edge hinges
Allows for the definition of edge hinges with spring characteristics, different static and vibration stiffness, and complex/complex nonlinear behaviour modelling.
Automatic calculation of the shear center of the structure
The program automatically calculates the shear center of the levels, which are displayed when the model is built.
Automatic self-weight load case
A new self-weight load case is available, which automatically includes the self-weight load of all structural elements in the model.
Allows for merging separate load cases from the same group into a single load case.
Buckling analysis for selected model parts (NL package)
The entire structure is included in the analysis, however, the elements not included in the examined parts only act as elastic supports. As a result, only the buckling modes of the selected elements appear.
Cutting of shear force peaks over columns
The program cuts the shear force peak above the columns when displaying the stresses of the surface elements.
Documentation of material and cross-section data
The documentation of the material and cross-section is refreshed in a new, clear structure and is available in the Report maker when creating PDF files or printing.
Analysis parameters in the Tables
The initial parameters of the nonlinear/vibration/dynamic analysis performed are summarized in the Tables.
