ANIMATION FEATURE

Introducing the animation feature in SAFI. The next release of SAFI will now allow the user to animate results from different types of analysis such as:

-Static Linear Analysis

-Static P-Delta Analysis

-Buckling Analysis

-Natural Frequencies Analysis

-Seismic and Dynamic Analysis

STATIC LINEAR AND P-DELTA ANALYSIS

In the latest version of SAFI, the user is now able to animate various static linear
and P-Delta analysis results
such as the:
-Structure displacements
-Internal forces
-Stresses
-Support reactions.

The results are scaled by a linearly increasing factor until the unity factor is reached. The user can detect which parts of the model undergo the most displacements or internal forces by seeing the variation of intensity across the model.

Animating the envelopes helps minimizing the amount of information on the screen. The user can focus on the most critical regions of the model.

ANIMATION FOR A BRIDGE MODEL

In the bridge results menu, animating the envelopes helps minimizing the amount of information on the screen. The user can focus on the most solicited regions of the model. As the animation evolves, the final results are displayed and the global envelopes are displayed.

FREQUENCY & BUCKLING

The frequency and buckling analysis provide multiple mode shapes describing multiple behaviors of the structure. With large models, the animation is helpful to discern and understand the mode shapes. It is easier to determine if the buckling mode is a local or global phenomenon. It also provides a very accurate interpretation of the participating mass of each mode in a seismic spectral analysis.

TIME HISTORY

The animation function displays every saved time-step to provide an accurate representation of the displacements, velocities, accelerations and internal forces acting on the structure.

This will provide the user a better understanding of the structure behavior during the dynamic event, such as finding the critical time of the dynamic loading.
