INTEGRATED STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS, DESIGN AND EVALUATION SOFTWARE FOR WOOD STRUCTURES.

 

OVERVIEW

SAFI™ TECHNOLOGIES: YOUR SOURCE FOR WOOD STRUCTURAL ENGINEERING SOLUTIONS

Integrated with SAFI™ 3D Structural Analysis, SAFI™ GSE Wood Structures is a program to design and analyze wood structures such as light wood framing or engineered wood structures.

The SAFI™ GSE Wood program allows to combine these two types of structures (bean-column frame and light framing).

DESIGN FEATURES

 

-Steel verification includes sections classification, resistance and stability checks according to the applicable code.
-Calculation of the bending, compression, tension, shear and combined resistance of steel elements.
-Effects of bearing, transverse and longitudinal stiffeners are considered in the design of bridge girders using bridge design codes such as the CAN/CSA S6 standard.
-The program optimizes the section shapes to minimize the weight or the cost of the whole or a part of the structure. This optimization is performed based on the complete or customized list of standard section shapes or any user defined library of standard and parametric sections shapes.
-Geometrical limits can be defined to control the dimensions and properties of the section shapes selected by the optimization engine.
-The optimization engine can check various deflection criterions during the section selection process.

LIGHT FRAMING

-Create rectangular walls with only two points or trapezoidal walls with three points in a 3D environment.
-The wall surfaces can be copied to create the structure faces and the different stories of the structure.
-The walls can either be bearing walls or shear walls.
-Each type of element in the wall is made of a simple or built-up wood section chosen by the user.
-When the wall is edited, the wall sketch highlights the treated elements in the wall.
-The wall sketch can be actualized when any parameter is modified.
-Window or door openings can be created and stored in a library.
-The lintel can be positioned directly above the opening or at the top of wall.
-The members of the openings can have their sections assigned according to the sections of the wall or can be selected manually.
-The sheathing parameters and the anchorage configuration can be specified for each wall segment in order to calculate the shear resistance of the shearwall segments.
-The wall generator creates the members and loading surfaces of the wall and assigns basic properties to these elements.
-All elements of the geometry can be generated at once.
-All wall elements can be edited by the user, which gives a great flexibility.
-Detailed results for each shear-wall segment, including the forces in anchorages (Rij) and the shear forces (Vf).
-The shear forces on each segment are calculated according to two methods: Shear force distribution based on the stiffness of the shearwall segments and shear force distribution based on the shear resistance of the segments.
-Design of floor diaphragms.

DATA EXCHANGE


-AutoCAD interface to import and export DXF files.
-The SDNF (Steel Detailing Neutral File) interface exports beams, columns and braces to SDNF compatible detailing programs.
-The KISS (Keep It Simple Steel) interface exports beams, columns and braces to KISS compatible estimation programs.
-If required, member subdivision and account for physical elements will be carried out automatically.
-The solid view of the structure may also be exported when exporting to AutoCAD.
-IFC-Architecture interface for importing models from Revit or other IFC compliant programs.

-IFC-Architecture interface for importing models from Revit or other IFC compliant programs.

REPORTS


-Results can be visualized either graphically or numerically.
-Input data and results may be printed for the whole structure or partial structures using a graphical selection or a range of elements.
-Customized list of input data and results to be printed.
-Reports are available in several formats including Microsoft Word documents, Microsoft Excel worksheets, and ASCII text files.

-All spreadsheets and graphics can be printed or copied to the clipboard for use in external programs.
