FEM mesh in transparency representation

The InfoGraph program systems offer a number of software solutions that are specifically optimized for structural design and feature a range of tools for interactive modeling. With the ability to calculate and check any structure, from simple slab systems and prestressed 3D shell structures to dynamically stressed solid models, the system can be used for a variety of civil engineering tasks. Model editing, analysis control and results output for all structure types are performed in a standard 3D CAD user interface with functions familiar from Windows. Special data interfaces ensure that you have access to third-party programs.

InfoCAD Options:

  • 2D and 3D beam and shell structures, cable structures and solid models
  • Laminate cross-sections, pile calculation
  • Geometrically and physically nonlinear analysis
  • Spring elements with any nonlinear characteristics
  • Line hinges with spring stiffnesses
    (e.g. f
    or modeling balcony connections acc. to the Schöck Isokorb® FEM Directive)
  • Determination of buckling eigenmodes
  • Bending, shearing and torsional design, robustness reinforcement
  • Punching shear check, fatigue check, concrete and steel stresses, crack width limitation
