StatiCAD-Masonry is a computer program which generates static analysis and project drawings of masonry buildings according to Eurocode 8 and Eurocode 6.By program you can generate orthogonal or non-orthogonal masonry building's static analysis and drawings according to Eurocode 8 and Eurocode 6.
Drawn building on the screen can be viewed in three dimensions simultaneously with the graphical interface. The program is quite practical for use. For example , walls and bond beams are drawn at the same time and when the doors/windows created in the wall program automatically divides the wall into two parts, it automatically creates the horizontal bond beams on the doors and Windows; creates a piece of wall on the doors/windows and a piece of wall at the bottom of the wall. It can select and arrange multiple components. Modelling process of a building can be completed in 2-3 hours. Reports and drawings can be taken in a single analysis. Graphical interface of the program is similar to concrete programs interface.
The program automatically applies all formulas of the Eurucode 6 and Eurocode 8’ regulations and standards for masonry buildings. Using the yield line theory to transfer vertical loads between building components is the biggest advantage of the program to excel spreadsheet. Excel spreadsheet offen finds avarage values by dividing the floor weight by length of the wall or area. However, load distribution is very different depending on the room and the building geometry. The shear capacity of the walls calculated with fvk=(g/t)*fvk0+0,4σd , because wall’s earthquake resistance dependent on the vertical load on the wall so walls with less vertical loads has less shear capacity. Safe buildings or walls which are calculated by excel can be inadequate when loads are distributed correctly. The program reports the error rate in the result of analysis if there is an error in a vertical load transfer or modelling and automatically corrects modeling errors that may occur. There is only axis dependence between ground floor and foundation. There is no other axis dependence between storeys. So vital points don’t need to be one after the other for load transfer and static calculations. That provides program with great flexibility and enables it to model any type of masonry structures. The program uses analytical models rather than finite element method which is an approximation method. You can expect exact match up with the program if you properly calculate. All calculations are made automatically in the program with regulations issued on masonry structures.
StatiCad-Masonry can solve almost any masonry building that can be solved by Eurocode 6.
