## Structural Design Software

Easily Design Your Concrete Members in Minutes

**ASDIP CONCRETE**

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

This structural concrete design software is based on the latest ACI 318 and TMS 402 provisions. Load combinations as per ASCE 7. *ASDIP CONCRETE* substantially simplifies time-consuming calculations for structural engineering design.

** ASDIP CONCRETE 4** has been released with great new features, such as custom load combinations, Beam Design Manager, multiple load types, two-story bearing walls, masonry wall design, wall opening design, and more...

### Key Benefits of ASDIP CONCRETE

**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.**Create, organize, manage, and store**your electronic calculations safely.

*The reports that ASDIP CONCRETE generates couldn’t be any better. They beautifully show all the math, the equations, code references and load combinations. What I like the most is the reinforcement detailing. I only got the ASDIP Concrete module and now I’m considering buying the rest."*

ASDIP CONCRETE INCLUDES THREE DESIGN MODULES:

**CONTINUOUS BEAM DESIGN****OUT-OF-PLANE WALL DESIGN**

## Concrete Column Design Module Features:

Columns are one of the most important elements in concrete structures, since they transfer the loads from the upper levels down to the foundation. ASDIP CONCRETE includes the reinforced concrete design of columns. Now structural engineers can work cost-effectively to design circular or rectangular concrete columns based upon a combination of biaxial bending moments and axial loading.

All software calculations are based upon ACI design criteria and Ultimate Strength Design Method. This structural concrete design software calculates magnified moments due to slenderness and generates capacity axial-moment interaction diagram.

#### Input

The required input data is organized on tabbed pages. The column cross-section may be rectangular or circular. The slenderness condition is considered by specifying the effective member length and if the column is sway or non-sway.

This structural engineering software utilizes either the actual parabolic concrete stress-strain curve or the simplified equivalent rectangular block. The steel may consider strain hardening region. The loads may be modeled as dead, live, roof live, snow, wind, and seismic load cases. If necessary, the moments are internally magnified and the program combines the loads per specified load combinations.

#### Output

The output results are organized on tabbed pages. The 3D capacity interaction diagram is accurately calculated based on the geometry and reinforcement for biaxial columns. This structural engineering software calculates magnified moments and axial loads for all the specified load combinations, and the process is detailed and reported for a granular check of the design. The values that fail the design criteria are highlighted in red for easier identification.

*I’ve been using SAP2000 for a while to design continuous concrete beams, but have never been happy with all the work it takes to produce a decent easy-to-read report (specially for old-fashion town engineers). The reports that ASDIP CONCRETE generates couldn’t be any better. They beautifully show all the math, the equations, code references, load combinations, and, what I like the most the reinforcement detailing. I only got the ASDIP Concrete module and now I’m considering buying the rest.”*
