How to Use Beam Design Manager in ASDIP CONCRETE

By: Javier Encinas, PE | April 30, 2019 ASDIP CONCRETE is a structural engineering software for design of concrete members. The new version 4 of this software was released recently. It includes a new feature called "Beam Design Manager". This post is a brief overview of how it works and how to use it to perform the design in less time and boost your productivity. Design of continuous beams The design of continuous beams may be cumbersome and time-consuming. After defining the loads, it's necessary to perform the beam analysis in order to find the shears and moments along the [...]

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 [...]

Continuous Beam Design Example Using ASDIP CONCRETE

By: Javier Encinas, PE | October 17, 2017 ASDIP CONCRETE is a structural engineering software for design of concrete members. ASDIP CONCRETE includes the design of multi-span continuous beams based on the latest ACI 318 provisions. The design of continuous beams may become cumbersome and time-consuming, since it involves the analysis of the beam to find the moments and shears, and the application of the Code provisions to design the reinforcement. This document is a step-by-step overview of a continuous beam design example using ASDIP CONCRETE. Beam design example As an example, let's consider [...]

How to Design Out-of-Plane Bearing Walls Using ASDIP CONCRETE

By: Javier Encinas, PE | April 10, 2017 ASDIP CONCRETE is a structural engineering software for design of concrete members. It includes the out-of-plane bearing walls design based on the latest ACI 318 provisions. Following is a visual overview of the steps required to design this type of concrete walls using ASDIP CONCRETE. Bearing walls design steps: Click To Enlarge Enter the wall thickness in the Geometry tab. Specify the reinforcement size and spacing. Enter the unsupported height and condition at top. ASDIP CONCRETE generates an At-a-Glance presentation of [...]
