Colosseum 1.2: Interstudio updates the structural calculation software – Macitynet.it
Here is a description of some of the improvements: – Creation of Windows with sections or partial views: from each window it is possible to create "daughter" windows that inherit the characteristics of the mother window, containing arbitrary sections or volumes of the structure; if there are selected elements at the time of the request, the section dimensions are automatically calculated to include the selected elements. – Management of Profiles and Spectra database Both databases are now managed in table mode, for greater ease of use – View windows each window has been introduced the possibility to export all the content, even the non-visible part, in PICT format for processing on CAD packages.They can now manage an unlimited number (unless available memory) of elements.– Solid model In addition to the Lattice model, they are the two new models have been introduced: – Surfaces: the surfaces of the elements are drawn with the elimination of hidden lines Shading: the surfaces of the elements are drawn with the elimination of the hidden lines and shading It is possible to define different colors for the solid model. in the elements In addition to the stresses Mz, Ty and N, they come o ra diagrammati My and Tz. (the Mx torque diagram is not performed) – Calculation of span reinforcement of beams The reporting of situations where it is impossible to determine a valid reinforcement has been enhanced.
Calculation report – Reports relating to the verification of reinforced concrete elements have been enhanced. In particular, the values of N, M, T are printed also in cases where the beam is not verified – Modal analysis Definition of masses equivalent to forces on the nodes and / or loads distributed on the elements). Instead of a single load case, it is possible to use all 4 cases, defining a multiplication coefficient for each of these, which then establishes the load percentage to be considered. In this way it is possible to implement, for example, the method of calculating the equivalent masses required by Italian standards (permanent overloads and rate from accidental overloads). Problems and optimizations Numerous small problems have been eliminated and optimizations have been made in the code
