Concrete Structure Design Software

Design and Calculation of Concrete Structures | EdiLus CONCRETE | ACCA software

Enjoy all the advantages of BIM technology with an integrated FEM solver in reinforced concrete structure calculations!

Design your structure in an intuitive workflow and get all the necessary reinforcement details and construction documents automatically...

EdiLus CONCRETE is the BIM software for the calculation of reinforced concrete structures of new and existing buildings.

  • EdiLus CONCRETE is modular: it can be integrated with specific modules for the design and calculation of steel and masonry structures.
  • EdiLus CONCRETE is integrated: in a single graphical environment, get the BIM model of your structure, FEM calculations, graphic analysis of the results and automatic reinforcement bars sizing.
  • EdiLus CONCRETE is complete: it produces all project documents (working drawings, calculation reports, etc.).

design three-dimensional structural - EdiLus CONCRETE - ACCA software

BIM modeling and object-based SNAP aids make designing simple and intuitive...

The BIM technology in EdiLus CONCRETE allows you to design two-dimensional or three-dimensional structural elements by selecting the characteristics of the objects at any time during the design phase.

Each object is represented graphically and dynamically connected to a database of information that univocally identifies it in its dimensional, geometric and physical characteristics (materials, mechanical properties, etc.).

Any data assigned as an object characteristic constitutes a new input element for the calculation and each change immediately becomes a new condition to address durrng the verification process.

The input allows the insertion, modification and deletion of objects keeping the plan views, cross-sections or axonometric views of the structure fully under control.

All data is stored in a single database and in a single file, with all the advantages that follow.

integrated FEM solver - EdiLus CONCRETE - ACCA software

...the integrated FEM solver and the graphic analysis of the calculation results allow the strucural designer to automatically size the reinforcements

EdiLus CONCRETE automatically sizes the reinforcements of the various structural elements in compliance with regulatory requirements.

You are free to customize the reinforcement bars; each modification will correspond to the updating of the rebar bending schedules, shear and torsion diagrams.

The internal diagnostics helps you to verify correctness of any modifications made to the model in real time. In addition, you can keep manual changes and customizations made to the reinforcement schedules.

Reinforcements can also be displayed in 3D; the three-dimensional view of reinforcements allows you to easily examine the various structural elements in detail.

Thanks to the 3D reinforcement design function, each object is able to automatically increase its information level following the structural calculation with the increase in the definition and detail of the object (LOD) and the consequent level of definition of the project.

The new LOD of the project achieved following the calculation can be exported in the IFC format and shared to allow the construction of a shared digital model which is continuously defined and updated with more detail.

International technical regulations

The EdiLus solution allows structural engineers to design and work with reinforced concrete, steel, timber and masonry structures in compliance with the Eurocodes (EC) and relating national annexes and with the Brazilian Technical Standards (NBR). More info

What can you do with EdiLus CONCRETE?

Pressure on walls and additional loads| EdiLus CONCRETE | ACCA software

Design of new and existing reinforced concrete buildings

EdiLus CONCRETE allows the design of new and existing buildings in reinforced concrete in compliance with Eurocodes (EC) and relating national annexes and Brazilian technical standards (NBR)*.

It performs a static and dynamic analysis of the structure with an integrated FEM solver with verifications exclusively in limit states.

It performs the necessary calculations for vulnerability analysis and for the design of interventions to improve the seismic behaviour of existing buildings in reinforced concrete.

*With the technical regulations of the "ABNT Associação Brasileira de Normas Técnicas (NBR)" it is possible to design only NEW buildings in reinforced concrete.
Modeling of shallow and deep foundations| EdiLus CONCRETE | ACCA software

Design of buildings with shallow and deep foundations

EdiLus CONCRETE allows the user to model both shallow and deep foundations.

Reinforced concrete piles can be modeled under any type of foundation (Plinths, foundation slabs and Winkler beams).

It performs the verification of vertical and horizontal limit loads and the compressive-bending and shear checks at the Ultimate Limit State for each individual pole.

It also provides the "foundation socket" object for both piles on poles and on direct poles, so as to model structures with plinths based on foundation sockets.

Design of floor slabs | EdiLus CONCRETE | ACCA software

Design of concrete slabs with infill-blocks

EdiLus CONCRETE allows you to design any type of infill-block floor slab: cast in situ, prestressed joists, lattice rafters and prefabricated panels (predalles slabs).

From the simple definition of the slab structure, the "continuous beam" calculation scheme is automatically obtained with the generation of all load combinations.

Reinforcements, generated automatically, are freely customizable by the user.

Design and calculate solid wood and glulam elements | EdiLus CONCRETE | ACCA software

Design and calculate solid wood and glulam elements (beams, columns, trusses and purlins)

With EdiLus CONCRETE you can model roofs, porches and other timber based components to complete a reinforced concrete or mixed structure.

You can integrate one-dimensional solid wood and glulam elements into the structure (such as beams and columns with rectangular and circular section types) and complex objects such as trusses (an advanced parametric input allows you to customize the model, its composition, geometry and dimensions).

A specific function allows you to automatically insert connection purlins in just a few clicks.

Comparison table

If you are calculating and verifying buildings with only one type of structural element, in this case, you may subscribe to a single module only. If you need to address mixed structures calculations, or want to calculate buildings with combinations of structural members, (reinforced concrete, steel and masonry) you can subscribe to multiple modules with the advantage of still having a single software which covers all types of structures.

The comparative table, proposed below, shows the type and number of structural elements available in each separate EdiLus module.
