ASDIP CONCRETE 4 Release – Structural Concrete Design

By: Javier Encinas, PE | April 16, 2019 ASDIP Structural Software announces the ASDIP CONCRETE 4 release engineering software. Design professionals utilize ASDIP CONCRETE 4 software for the design of concrete members. Following are some of the most important features and benefits included in this version 4. This new version 4 includes the following three modules: Concrete Column Design – Uni-axial or bi-axial columns. Section can be either rectangular or circular. Slenderness effects are considered. Multiple reinforcing options. Graphical generation of the interaction diagram. Continuous Beam Design – Up to five spans and two cantilevers. End supports can be either [...]

ASDIP CONCRETE 4 Is Coming Soon: A Brief Overview

By: Javier Encinas, PE | March 20, 2019 ASDIP CONCRETE is a structural engineering software for design of concrete members. The new version 4 of this software will be released shortly. This document is a brief overview of some of the most important new features included in ASDIP CONCRETE 4. ACI 318-14 Compliance ASDIP CONCRETE now fully complies with either ACI 318-11 or 14. Custom Load Combinations Now you can specify your load factors and create a set of custom load combinations. When you have defined a set of load combinations you can save that set for future use. This [...]

Biaxial Column Design Example Using ASDIP CONCRETE

By: Javier Encinas, PE | January 8, 2019ASDIP CONCRETE is a structural engineering software for the design of concrete members. It includes the design of biaxial columns  based on the ACI 318 provisions. This document is a step-by-step of a biaxial slender concrete column design example using ASDIP CONCRETE.Concrete column design exampleAs an example, consider the 20 ft long non-sway square column shown below, which is part of an office building. The lateral loads will be resisted by shear walls, but the columns will have wind end moments due to deformation compatibility. Design the column reinforcement for the loads shown. [...]
