Structural Concrete Design: ASDIP CONCRETE (Version 4) Release

By: Javier Encinas, PE | April 16, 2019ASDIP Structural Software announces the release of the new version of ASDIP CONCRETE (Version 4) engineering software. Design professionals utilize ASDIP CONCRETE 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 [...]

ASDIP CONCRETE 4 to Release Shortly: Masonry Walls

By: Javier Encinas, PE | April 3, 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 covers the design of masonry walls, which is a new feature included in ASDIP CONCRETE 4. Masonry Wall Design Now ASDIP CONCRETE includes the design of masonry bearing walls subject to out of plane loads, such as exterior walls in warehouse-type buildings. You can switch between concrete / masonry wall just with a click. Now the bearing walls can be either one or two-story high. The software [...]

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 release 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 [...]

Slender Bearing Wall Example Using ASDIP CONCRETE

By: Javier Encinas, PE | March 6, 2019ASDIP CONCRETE is a structural engineering software for design of concrete members. It includes the design of out-of-plane bearing walls based on the latest ACI 318 provisions.The design of out-of-plane loaded walls may become cumbersome and time-consuming, since it involves the analysis of the wall to find the shears and moments, and then the slenderness effects should be accounted for. This document is a step-by-step design example of a typical concrete wall exposed to wind using ASDIP CONCRETE.As an example, consider the concrete tilt-up wall shown below, which is part of a warehouse [...]
