### Analysis and design of masonry constructions

# SCADA Pro Masonry +

Unified application of static and dynamic analysis, design and evaluation of load-bearing masonry structures

## Detailed Description

SCADA Pro Masonry is a complete and comprehensive application for static and dynamic analysis and design of masonry structures according to Eurocode 6 and most European National Annexes.

It also includes the production of the full repost of the project.

## Interface

New interface for even more flexibility and productivity

## Modelling

Automatic recognition of structural elements and creation of the structure from DXF, DWG file.

Full compatibility between AutoCAD Revit Structure Suite and SCADA Pro,

## 3D FEM

New powerful mesh generator of 3D surface finite elements

A new mesh generator of 3D surface finite elements is included in SCADA Pro.

The program also allows the insertion of a hole in an already meshed surface.

Any type of material may be attributed to a mesh with no problem.

Contours concerning the stress resultants, the strains or the computed reinforcement percentage “As” may be drawn on the produced mesh.

## Input of slabs and slab loads

Slabs of any shape and any type are considered (Conventional, Zoellner, Sandwich).

The minimum thickness of the slab is calculated automatically applying the slenderness control.

The loads can be imported as linear or in segments.

## Analysis Types

Fast and reliable solvers so that the user can rely on

The following analysis methods are included:

Linear Simplified Spectral Method (Equivalent Spectral Method)

Linear Dynamic Spectral Method

Instead, the spectral values of the response which correspond to each eigenmode are calculated.

Linear Dynamic Time History Analysis

Time history dynamic analysis is divided into linear and nonlinear.

For the calculation of the response, the structural equations of motion have to be solved.

This can be done in two ways: modal analysis or direct integration of the equations of motion.

This leads to an important decrease of the computational cost.

The computational cost increases, but the solution obtained is exact and not approximate.

Non-Linear Dynamic Time History Analysis

For this reason it is recommended to repeat the analysis using more than one seismic events.

## Multithreading CPU – GPU accelerated analysis

Analysis on multicore CPU or GPU

This vast parallelism (fine-grained) leads to even lower analysis times for very large models.

## Analysis – Seismic design – Checks (EC8)

Full customization for repetitive analyses and result optimization. Try safely!

Execution of multiple analyses with a single click. Versatility and infinite options for the user.

## Results – Post Processing

## Design(EC6)

Analysis and design of loadbearing masonry structures according to EC6

The finite element method is the most advanced approach to simulate these kind of structures.

The model is automatically generated by the use of 3D surface finite elements.

Linear finite elements may be present in the same model too, for the simulation of confined masonry.

Unreinforced masonry,

Confined masonry,

Reinforced masonry.

SCADA Pro runs all the checks required by EC6 “Design of masonry structures”, namely:

In-plane bending check,

Out-of-plane bending check parallel to the horizontal joint,

Out-of-plane bending check perpendicular to the horizontal joint,

Shear check,

Vertical load check at the top, middle and base of the wall.

Eurocode 6 (EC6) – ΕΝ 1996-1-1:2005: Design of masonry structures

Eurocode 8 (EC8) – ΕΝ 1998-1:2004 – Chapter 9: Specific rules for masonry buildings

ΕΝ1996-1-1:2005 has been introduced for the design of loadbearing masonry structures.

Masonry units made of:

Calcium Silicate,

Aggregate concrete,

Autoclaved aerated concrete,

Manufactured stone,

Dimensioned natural stone, of Category Ι or ΙΙ, and grouped in Group 1, 2, 3 or 4.

Mortars:

General purpose masonry mortar (designed),

General purpose masonry mortar (prescribed),

Thin layer masonry mortar,

Lightweight masonry mortar (of density 600 ≤ ρ ≤ 800 kg/m3),

Lightweight masonry mortar (of density 800 ≤ ρ ≤ 1300 kg/m3).

All types of masonry walls referred in the codes can be modelled.

Type of walls:

Single-leaf wall,

Cavity wall,

Double-leaf wall,

Grouted cavity wall (choice of type of concrete infill is provided),

Faced wall,

Shell bedded wall,

Veneer wall,

Wall stiffened by piers (geometrical properties determination according to EC6).

Jacketing parameters:

Single-leaf or double-leaf jacketing,

Type of concrete / reinforcing steel,

Geometric properties determination (i.e. thickness of the jackets, reinforcement ratios).

The stresses computed in the finite element analysis are integrated on a section to derive the corresponding internal forces.

The user may define whatever section of a wall, horizontal or vertical, either for the whole length/height of a wall or for a part of it (e.g. for a pier).

Design checks:

Check of a wall under vertical loads,

at the top, middle and base of the wall.

Check of a wall under in-plane loading (other than vertical loading),

Check of a wall under out-of-plane loading,

bending moment about an axis parallel to the horizontal joint of the wall,

bending moment about an axis perpendicular to the horizontal joint of the wall.

Rules for “Simple masonry buildings”

when satisfied all the aforementioned checks are not obligatory.

## Assessment – Redesign (EC8, Part 3)

The corresponding structural elements are the piers and the spandrels of a masonry wall.

The axial force and bending moment, or

The shear force

## Report of the project

User friendly interface for the creation and editing of the report

In SCADA Pro the user simply selects the sections to be included in the report of the project.

Beams’ results also include envelope diagrams of internal forces.

Accompanying drawings and other details are also available and included for better reporting.
