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. 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 editable load combinations, beam Design Manager, multiple load types, two-story bearing walls, masonry wall design, and more...

  • 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.
  • Much, much more...

USER FRIENDLY – RELIABLE RESULTS – WELL DOCUMENTED

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.”

THREE MODULES INCLUDED

  • CONCRETE COLUMN DESIGN
  • CONTINUOUS BEAM DESIGN
  • OUT-OF-PLANE WALL DESIGN

ASDIP CONCRETE includes a COLUMN DESIGN module. 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 engineering 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.

TESTIMONIALS



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.”
