EC - PRAXIS Series: Officially approved by Computers & Structures Inc. (CSI)
As part of its continuing effort to provide civil engineers with reliable, accurate and versatile software, CSI Hellas has developed a family of applications for the design of steel connections and composite members according to EC3 and EC4, respectively.
The various applications are available in two different versions, depending on whether or not they can integrate with ETABS or SAP2000. In the stand-alone version, the user must input all the relevant data (geometry, member profiles, loads etc.) and then proceed with the design.
Worldwide, ETABS is considered the most popular analysis and design software. The “Top Seismic Product of the 20th Century” (2006) and “Honor Αward in Engineering Software” (2002) awards, establish it as the innovator in structural analysis and design and the reference point for the entire market.
Ever since its introduction over 30 years ago SAP is internationally acknowledged as the most advanced software in 3D analysis and design of structures. SAP2000 follows in the same tradition, being a state-of-the-art, multifunctional software, fully compatible with Windows 2000/XP/Vista.
Ever since it first appeared in the global market, SAFE is considered the state-of-the-art in the analysis and design of slabs, mat slabs and surface foundation in general. By using finite elements, it offers unsurpassed accuracy and versatility compared with the traditional analysis methods or similar programs that model slabs through linear beam elements.
CSiCOL is a comprehensive software package used for the analysis and design of columns. The design of columns of any concrete, reinforced concrete, or composite cross-section can be carried out by the program. CSiCOL provides a 'Quick Design Wizard' tool that guides the users step-by-step, through the whole process of column design.
PERFORM 3D is a highly focused nonlinear software tool for earthquake resistant design. Complex structures, including those with intricate shear wall layouts, can be analyzed nonlinearly using a wide variety of deformation-based and strength-based limit states.
