– Advanced non-linear supports- new possibilities for defining nonlinear relationships for supports
– Masonry structures- possibility to model and verify masonry walls (acc. EN 1996) using a new Masonry Wall design module
– Wind on free standing walls- possibility to generate wind on free standing walls acc. EN 1991-1-4
– Result tables- fast and easy checking FEM results with Results Tables
– Improvementsto New possibilities and improvements for reinforcement concrete design.
Version 2023 of Advance Design also comes with a vast number of improvements and adjustments based on feedback received from thousands of users worldwide. Dozens of these new features have been introduced to RC design modules.
Advance Design is a complete solution for the analysis of complex structures by the finite elements method. To ensure a high standard of excellence for its users, it provides a wide range of functions specialized in advanced CAD modeling, meshing, calculation, expert design and results post-processing.
Advance Design was specifically developed for industry professionals that require a superior solution for the structural analysis and design of Reinforced Concrete, Steel and Timber structures according to the last versions of the Eurocodes, North American, Canadian, and Italian codes.
