State of the art technology built around the concept of physical members that allows to accurately design the reinforcement of continuous members such as beams and columns.
The program can design a whole or only a part of the structure.
Supports the American ACI-318 code, the Canadian CSA-A23.3, the Egyptian code ECCS 203.
Libraries for standard American, Canadian or Egyptian reinforcement bars.
It also allows to calculate the resistance of the elements once the reinforcement is known, which allows to improve the design of a structure or to evaluate the resistance of an existing one.
Reinforcement bars and stirrups, applied loads, resistance curves and interaction diagrams are displayed graphically.
The GSE software allows the verification of concrete members subjected to a linear, P-Delta, non-linear, seismic, dynamic or moving load analysis.
Verification of bending, shear, torsion and combined axial forces and bending.
Calculated reinforcement can be further edited and additional resistance verification calculations can be performed on the whole or selected parts of the structure. This cyclic design method allows to closely match practical user requirements without the need of tedious hand calculations.
Reinforcement layouts, resistance curves and interaction diagrams are displayed graphically.
The program considers longitudinal reinforcement and bent bars for bending resistance.
The program considers straight or inclined stirrups and bent bars for shear and torsion resistance.
The program considers column reinforcement for combined axial and bending loads.
