CivilFEM INTRO. Product Specification I. General Features


CivilFEM basic capabilities are included in CivilFEM INTRO. These capabilities could be extended with the specific modules. Contact your CivilFEM Support Distributor for availability.

= Full Integrated inside Ansys Program


CivilFEM works inside Ansys program. That is, all Ansys tools may be used with CivilFEM (APDL, UIDL, optimization, graphical output, ...), the CivilFEM menus are integrated inside the Ansys Main Menu, CivilFEM Help is inside Ansys Help System, CivilFEM commands are generated by CivilFEM menus, CivilFEM commands format are similar to Ansys commands, CivilFEM commands are written to the Ansys log file, CivilFEM errors are treated as Ansys errors and written to the Ansys error file.

= Free Units System Selection


Like Ansys, CivilFEM may work in any system of units. However, the user must specify the units system before any CivilFEM calculation is done, since specific code formulations and CivilFEM tools depend on units (i.e. when a shape is selected in the hot rolled shape library, the real constant is defined in the active units system). A library with the most usual (American and European) units in civil engineering is available. Furthermore the user may specify any other system by simply defining its equivalence to international system.

II. Civil Material Library


CivilFEM defines the mechanical properties required by Ansys and the specific properties needed for code checking of usual civil materials, in accordance with the code specifications.

= Concrete Material Library


The concrete material library contains all concrete designations included in Eurocode No.2, ACI318 and EHE. The Ansys elastic material properties EXX, NUXY, ALPHA and DENS are defined according to the active code and units using the CONCRETE CivilFEM command or window.

= Steel Material Library


The steel material library includes all steel designations that are used by AISC ASD, Eurocode No.3 and EA. The Ansys elastic (EXX, NUXY, ALPHA and DENS) and plastic (TB* commands) material properties are defined according to the active code and units using the STEEL CivilFEM command or window.

III. Civil Section Library


CivilFEM section library contains a wide range of usual civil sections. Using the SEC_XXX family of commands or windows the Ansys mechanical properties of the cross sections (real constants and section properties) will be automatically defined for the following Ansys element types: LINK1, LINK8, LINK10, BEAM3, BEAM4, BEAM23, BEAM24, BEAM44, BEAM54, PIPE16, PIPE20, BEAM188 and BEAM189. Additionally to this Ansys properties, CivilFEM sections include many other data needed for code checking (dimensions, plates structure, rolled/welded, strength) and other data useful to the user

(weight per unit of length, painting area, ...) that may be obtained using the SECLIST and PLBMSECT CivilFEM commands. CivilFEM section library works with its own library of hot rolled shapes as well as with sections by dimensions or generic sections. Sections may be edited and modified easily, e.g. they may be degenerated from rolled to welded and even to generic sections.

= Library of European Hot Rolled Shapes


This library contains all the hot rolled shapes distributed in Europe by ARBED, series IPE, IPE A, IPE O, IPE x, HE A, HE B, HE M, HE AA, HE x, HL A, HL B, HL M, HL x, HL R, HD x, HP x, IPN, W xx, UB xx, UC xx, UAP, UPN, L EQ, L UNQ.

= Typical Steel Sections by Dimensions


The most usual welded steel sections may be defined by dimensions: Depth, Tf, Tw, Bw, .... CivilFEM includes the following sections: I, channel (U), T, pipe, angular (L) and rectangular box section. Any section defined by using the hot rolled shapes library may be transformed into a section defined by dimensions, and then be modified.

= Generic Steel Sections by Plates


This feature allows defining a generic steel section built up with 2 to 100 plates. For each plate the ends coordinates, the thickness and the restraint condition must be specified. Any section defined by using the hot rolled shape library or defined by dimensions may be degenerated to a generic section defined by plates, and then it may be modified.

= Typical Concrete Sections by Dimensions


The most usual concrete sections may be defined by dimensions: Depth, Wide, Tf, Tw, Bw, .... The following sections are included: Rectangular, Box section, T, Unsymmetrical I, Circular and Annular.

= Generic Mixed Material Sections


This feature allows the definition of sections with any shape and even with mixed materials (different concrete strengths and/or concrete with structural steel). The user may define a generic section by meshing a 2D Ansys model with any shape. (Available with release 5.7 of CivilFEM)

= Section Definition from 3D Ansys Models


Additionally to the direct definition of a section by a 2D mesh, this capability allows to build and solve a complete 3D solid model of the structure, and then select sections inside this model to be processed by CivilFEM. This feature allows code checking and design of all user defined sections of 3D finite element models. (Available with release 5.7 of CivilFEM).

= Concrete Reinforcement Definition


It is possible to define reinforcements inside any concrete section, no matter how it is defined. Reinforcements may be scalable (optimized by the program) or fixed. Fixed reinforcement can not be increased during the design process. Reinforcement may be defined as continuous or discrete. Any number of groups of reinforcement with free location may be defined inside any concrete section. It is possible to define and modify the reinforcement by total amount, ratio or number of bars in multiple ways.

= Generic Polygonal Sections by Vertices


From the section outline description represented by a polygon up to 400 vertices, CivilFEM obtains all section properties needed for any ANSYS beam element. It is also possible to transform any other section that was defined from library, by dimensions, ..., and modify it by editing its vertices.

IV. User Friendly Beams


This module includes tools that make easier to work with beam elements. It includes the following capabilities:

= List and Plot of Section Geometry and Properties


Through Ansys graphics window or using the specific CivilFEM windows, it is possible to plot and list section properties: geometry, dimensions, specific code properties, strength properties and code checking results. Forces and moments graphics for Beam elements, including title and an icon with information about the direction and sign convention of the represented results may be also directly obtained. Direct graphical output of stresses in Beam elements, including title and an icon with information concerning the point of the section where stress is displayed.

= Automatic Load of Forces & Moments


Reading data sets into post1 Ansys processor by using CivilFEM menus, allows the automatic loading of element tables with forces and moments for beam elements.

= List and Plot Beam Results


Forces, moments and stresses along beam elements in the model may be directly plotted by using CivilFEM commands or windows. Additionally to the usual Ansys legend information, labeling of results and one icon at the bottom right corner inform of the result type and sign criterion. In stress plots, the icon shows the actual section and a red point in the section location where the stress is displayed.

= Plot of Stresses Inside Cross Sections


This feature allows the graphical output of normal stresses (from axial and bending) inside the beam cross sections. This capability works with any Ansys beam, pipe or spar element.

V. Skilled Combinations

Axisymmetric shells: 51, 61

= Smart Selection of Loads and Coefficients


The combination module of CivilFEM is able to select which loads must be combined and with which coefficient it reaches the worst conditions in any node or element of the structure. Only the targets (result to maximize or minimize) and the combination rules must be specified.

= Code Combination Logic


The combination module allows easy definition of complex code combination logic.

= Mobil Loads Combination


The combination module works easily with mobile loads. A high number of load states and combinations can be used efficiently.

= Concomitance at Element Level


The worst result and its concomitant values at element level are obtained. E.g. in a beam element, if the target is the maximum stress at top right corner, the concomitant stresses and strains in the whole cross section and the concomitant forces and moments will be obtained.

= Concomitance at Global Structural Level


Additionally to the concomitance at element level, it is possible to obtain concomitance at entire model level and the load configuration that leads to obtain worst local results. That is, it is possible to obtain the displacement or reactions of the whole structure/model, corresponding or concomitant with the maximum stress in one point, as well as asking for strains and stresses in the whole structure concomitant with the maximum deflection or reaction in a point.

= Worst Load Arrangements, Combinations and Coefficients


Once the worst combined result is obtained, it is possible to obtain the loads and coefficients used by the program to reach this combined result at each point.

VII. Steel Code Checking


Steel checking is intended to work with beam elements. All checking processes are made over the results located in the in memory Ansys database at post1 level. The main check results are supplied as element tables, that may be listed or plotted by using the Ansys and CivilFEM tools. Additional detailed check information at section level is stored in the CivilFEM section database. Furthermore, CivilFEM groups in different Ansys components the elements that are either in accordance with particular code articles/specifications or not. This makes it easier to analyze them with graphs and lists. At present, there are two codes available: Eurocode No.3 (European code) and the EA (Spanish code).

= Eurocode No 3 (European)
It is possible to check any steel section defined by using CivilFEM, that is, the following sections are taken into account: Sections obtained from the library of hot rolled shapes. Sections defined by dimensions. Generic steel sections defined by plates. Element checking includes the capabilities that match articles 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5 of the English version of the code (without applying any National Application Document), leaving as user supplied the values of the parameters enclosed in a box (able to be modified by National Application Document) in the original code. The following capabilities are included: Obtain the section class and the element class at each section element (flanges, web...) for bending MY and for bending MZ. Obtain the effective cross section for class 4 sections. Plastic strength calculation of the total cross section and strength calculation of the effective section. Check the resistance of cross sections in compression, tension, bending, bi-axial bending, axial + bending, axial + bi-axial bending, shear, bending + shear, axial + bi-axial bending + bi-axial shear.

Checking of member buckling with the method. Buckling check is made, provided that the user supplies the member dependent factors: L, MY, and MZ.

VIII. Concrete Code Checking & Design


Concrete checking is intended to work with beam elements and sections defined inside 3D Ansys models. All checks are made over the results located in the in memory Ansys database at post1 level. The main check results are supplied as element tables, that may be listed or plotted by using the Ansys and CivilFEM tools. Additional detailed check information at section level is stored in the CivilFEM section database. Furthermore, CivilFEM groups in different Ansys components the elements that are either in accordance with particular code specifications/articles or not. This makes it easier to analyze them with graphs and lists. The three codes available are Eurocode No.2 (European code), ACI-318 (American code) and the EHE (Spanish code). Stress-strain diagrams for concrete and steel may be selected from a library that contains the diagrams included in the codes or may be defined by the user ( Available in release 5.7) Reinforcement for checking or designing may be placed free in any section location. The reinforcement design is made up by dividing the section reinforcement into a scalable part and a fixed part. The user must specify the initial amount of reinforcement and the range for the factor that multiplies the scalable part of the reinforcement. The program supplies the best factor to multiply the scalable part of the reinforcement and the necessary total amount of reinforcement. Any code reinforcement arrangement, ratio or mechanical cover specification is taken into account by the program. Checking and design include following capabilities over cross sections: Pure bending Axial force + bending Axial force + bi-axial bending (Available in release 5.7) Shear Torsion Shear + Torsion Detailed graphical output may be obtained (through the Ansys window and the specific CivilFEM windows) of interaction between axial force and bending moments.

IX. Shell Reinforcement


Shell Reinforcement capability works with Ansys shell43, shell63 and shell93 elements. Element stresses are read directly in the Ansys RST file, and shell reinforcements are written also in this file. The stresses are replaced by the integrated forces and moments at each node, and the strains by the designed reinforcements at each node and face. Shell forces and moments are obtained in the element vertices before calculating the needed reinforcement. Reinforcement directions may be individually defined for each element using the Ansys element coordinate systems with any angle (they dont need to be orthogonal).

= Wood Armer MX, MY, MXY Reinforcement


Reinforcement design is made using the Wood-Armer method for MX, MY, and MXY moments at each node. Non orthogonal reinforcement and variable mechanical covers is available.

= Full TX, TY, TXY, MX, MY, MXY, NX, NY Reinforcement


Reinforcement design is made by using the method proposed in the CEB-FIP 1.990 Model Code. (Available in release 5.7)
