Why Choose VisualAnalysis?
Structural Modeling is Easy
Flexible methods for building models include sketching, DXF import, copy & paste, parametric generation of common components (frames, tanks, walls, bracing, floor systems, etc.), import from spreadsheet or other tools, and BIM. Mix materials in your models: steel, wood, concrete, cold-formed and aluminum.
Loading is Fast
Apply a variety of loads to nodes, members, plates, or areas graphically. Copy and paste loads to different cases. Customizable load cases and combinations are simple.
Analysis is Powerful: Linear or Nonlinear
Just enough power for most engineers, choose the methods you want to use: 1st order, P-Delta, Direct Analysis, Dynamic Modal, Response or Time-History.
Design is Not a Black Box
Code checks per material specifications are trivial to set up. Let the software check your existing design or ask it to resize members according to your criteria. Design reports that clearly document your results as well as intermediate values for your own validation efforts.
Reports Allow Easy Review
Create your very own set of report templates to organize, sort, filter and display the information you need. Include graphics in reports and save to PDF.
Succeed with IES Quality
VisualAnalysis helps you at every step, checking your input values, offering model-checks and result-validation services. Technical support is fast, friendly and always free. Downloads are small. Licensing is flexible and unobtrusive.
