*ASDIP CONCRETE Structural Engineering Software*

## Easily Design Your Concrete Members Within Minutes

## ASDIP CONCRETE

ASDIP CONCRETE is structural engineering software utilized by engineers for design of structural concrete members, such as biaxial columns, continuous beams, and out-of-plane bearing walls.

ASDIP CONCRETE is based on the latest ACI 318 provisions. ASDIP CONCRETE substantially simplifies time-consuming calculations for structural engineering design.

## THREE MODULES INCLUDED

## USER FRIENDLY – RELIABLE RESULTS – WELL DOCUMENTED

### Key benefits:

- Quickly model your concrete members with the simple and efficient graphical user interface.
- Confidently optimize your design and comply with design Code provisions.
- Impress clients and plan-checkers with eye-catching condensed or detailed reports.
- Extensive documentation, solved examples, and blog posts to guide you throughout the software.
- Use your valuable time wisely while ASDIP CONCRETE does the hard work for you.

### Modeling:

- Any Windows® Operating System. No additional software required.
- Full compliance with:
- IBC 12
- ACI 318-11
- ASCE 7-05 or 10

- Versatility to model a full set of load combinations, or just a single pre-combined load.
- Customizable design criteria, options, and conditions.
- Three different unit systems available:
- US (in, ft, Kip, ksi)
- SI (cm, m, N, MPa)
- MKS (cm, m, Tn, Kg/cm2)

- Rich user interface to model the geometry, materials, loads and rebars.
- Multiple loading for dead, live, roof live, snow, wind and seismic.
- Model either rectangular, T-beam, spandrel, inverted-T, or L-beam cross sections.
- Model either rectangular or round column cross sections.
- You may copy loads and rebars to other spans in a continuous beam.
- Specify either Hognestad or Whitney concrete stress-strain.
- Specify either elasto-plastic or strain-hardening steel stress-strain.
- Model up to 5 spans and 2 cantilevers. End supports either fixed or pinned.
- Multiple visual controls to model the reinforcing steel.

### Calculation results:

- Sort results per span number and load combination for granular design check.
- Graphic display of 2D and 3D interaction diagrams in columns and walls.
- Graphic display of shear and moment diagrams in beams.
- Detailed calculation of magnified moments in columns and walls.
- Software finds the controlling combination for each condition to optimize design.
- Detailed step-by-step reports with exposed formulas and Code references.
- Combined text-with-values output message updated with each change.
- Outstanding high-quality output with Print Preview.
- Three ways to show the calculations with increasing level of information: At-a-Glance, Condensed, and Detailed.
- Construction sketch of your concrete member updated with each change.
- Generate the interaction diagram for any rotation angle of the cross section.
- Show / Hide the Pn-Mn diagram, splicing regions, and applied loads in the Graph tab.
- Show graphically any span segment, or the full continuous beam.

### Usability:

- Project Manager handles calculations and file management.
- You are in complete control of every single aspect of the design.
- Design your concrete members within minutes (not hours).
- Verify every design step quickly. Not a “black box”.
- No silly assumptions or math shortcuts. Confident, accurate, and reliable results.
- Focus your attention on engineering, and let ASDIP CONCRETE handle all the mathematical complexity.
- Multiple calculations stored in a single project file.
- Safely create, organize, manage, and store your electronic calculations.

## TESTIMONIALS

I recently purchased all four of the ASDIP structural engineering software modules. After using this engineering software for a few months I believe it works very well for its intended purpose. ASDIP is very simple to use, is reasonably priced, and the calculation output is organized with a nice looking readable layout.Chris Krus, PE
