asdip-wood-3-release

ASDIP Structural Software announces the release of ASDIP WOOD 3 engineering software. Design professionals utilize ASDIP WOOD software for the design of wood members, such as beams, columns, and walls. Following are some of the most important features and benefits included in this version 3.

This new version includes the following four modules:

  • Wood Column Design – Uniaxial or biaxial columns. Section can be either Sawn Lumber, Glulam, or Composite Lumber. Slenderness effects are considered. Graphical generation of the 2D and 3D interaction diagrams.
  • Continuous Beam Design – Up to five spans and two cantilevers. End supports can be either fixed or pinned. Multiple load types and load cases. Graphical generation of shear and moment diagrams and beam elevation.
  • Bearing Wall Design – Multiple gravity and lateral out-of-plane loads. Slenderness effects are considered. Graphical generation of the interaction diagram.
  • Shear Wall Design - Up to five stories and five stacked shear walls. Story shear strength check. Design of chords for tension and compression.

In addition to a better layout design and dozens of improvements, the following are the most important new features and benefits in ASDIP WOOD 3:

ASDIP WOOD 3 - New Features

Multistory Shear Wall Design

New module. ASDIP WOOD 3 will include the analysis and design of wood shear walls per the AWC SDPWS 2021. Up to five wall segments and five stories can be modeled. The loads are specified as a full set of load cases. Lateral loads are wind and seismic. Load combinations per ASCE 7 or user-defined. Both ASD and LRFD included. Multiple options in the user interface to model the shear walls easily.

The program calculates the shear strength per wall segment at each story based on the specified frame / sheathing / nailing configuration. This shear strength is compared versus the maximum story shear produced by the applied loads. Then the software calculates the tension and compression chord forces at each wall segment per story, and finally it designs the chord members accordingly per the latest NDS provisions.

Wood Beam Design

ASDIP WOOD will include the design of continuous beams under a variety of vertical loads. End supports can be either pinned of fixed. Multiple options to model the lateral bracing condition. Save time by copying loads to other spans just with a click.

The program calculates the maximum bending, shear, and bearing stresses along the beam and compares them against the structural capacity. ASDIP WOOD generates the shear and moment diagrams of the beam, sorted by load combination.

Wood Column Design

The software will include the design of biaxial columns under the action of concentrated and uniform loads. The effective buckling length can be easily modeled. Axial forces can be either tension or compression.

The program calculates the axial, bending, and shear stresses. Multiple checks for the compression - tension - bending interaction. ASDIP WOOD generates the 2D and 3D axial-moment interaction diagrams for a quick evaluation of the column capacity.

Wood Bearing Wall Design

ASDIP WOOD will include the design of bearing walls under the action of concentrated and uniform loads vertical loads, and out-of-plane wind pressure. Equally spaced studs, sheathing, and bearing plates can be modeled easily.

The program calculates the axial, bending, shear, and bearing stresses. Multiple checks for the compression - tension - bending interaction. ASDIP WOOD generates the axial-moment interaction diagram for a graphical representation of the wall capacity.

Takeaway

ASDIP WOOD 3 has been released, including the design of Continuous Beams, Biaxial Columns, Bearing Walls, and a new module for Multistory Shear Walls. The design of such systems may be completed and optimized in minutes with the use of the software.
