GeoForce One: designing strengthening in 3 steps

1. DEFINITION OF THE MODEL AND STRENGTHENING PLANNING

  • Definition of the geometry of sections and structural elements by parametric generation for recurrent geometries and using CAD platform for generic geometries
  • Insertion of the strengthening systems produced by Kerakoll
  • 2D and 3D graphic results of the model
  • Autogeneration of the analysis model
  • Fibre section to assess the sectional response
  • FEM discretisation for the beam element with distributed non linearity

2. STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS AND TESTS IMPLEMENTED

  • Sectional analysis and tests: Deflected compressive and flexural stress, Confinement, Shear and Torsion stress
  • Analysis of structural elements
  • Non linear static control analysis of forces for initial status
  • Non linear static control analysis of movement up to collapse

3. OUTPUT ANALYSIS AND REPORT

Report preparation: automatic generation of a detailed report with the results of the tests carried out, N-M interaction diagramsN-Mand M-κ diagramsM-κ. Output analysis for the structural element:

  • Capacity curve
  • Evaluation of the deformation and cracking, with indication of the overall and sectional ductility
  • Nodal, elementary and sectional variable plots
  • View of the tensile stress and deformation of the various components in the section
