ASDIP CONCRETE Structural Design Software

Easily Design Your Concrete Members Within Minutes


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 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. It shows all the math, equations, code references, load combinations, and, what I like the most is the reinforcement detailing. I only got the ASDIP Concrete module and now I’m considering buying the rest.”

Bearing walls are structural compression members which also may resist out-of-plane lateral loads. The resulting moments are referred to as weak-axis bending. A tilt-up wall panel exposed to wind is an example of this type of wall. Per ACI, bearing walls may be designed as compression members using the strength design provisions for flexure and axial loads, like columns. Any wall may be designed by this method and no minimum wall thicknesses are prescribed. As with columns, the design of walls is difficult without the use of design aids. Wall design is further complicated by the fact that slenderness is a consideration in practically all cases. The Moment Magnification method is generally used to account for the slenderness effects.

ASDIP CONCRETE software performs design of either concrete or masonry bearing walls when subjected to a combination of weak-axis bending moments and axial loading. All calculations are based upon the latest ACI and TMS design criteria and the Ultimate Strength Design Method. This structural concrete design software calculates magnified moments due to slenderness and generates the capacity axial-moment interaction diagram. A two-story wall may also be modeled. The software includes wall opening design.


The required input data is organized on tabbed pages. The wall section is rectangular with either one or two curtains of reinforcement. A masonry wall may be solid grouted. A parapet may be specified or the wall may be continuous at top. This structural engineering software uses the actual parabolic concrete stress-strain curve rather than the simplified equivalent rectangular block. The steel considers the strain hardening region. The loads may be modeled as part of the dead, live, roof live, snow, and wind load cases. The moments are internally magnified and the program combines the loads per the specified load combinations.



The output results are organized on tabbed pages. This structural engineering software calculates magnified moments and axial loads for all the specified load combinations. The capacity interaction diagram is accurately calculated based on the geometry and reinforcement. The moment magnification 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. It shows all the math, equations, code references, load combinations, and, what I like the most is the reinforcement detailing. I only got the ASDIP Concrete module and now I’m considering buying the rest.”
