A software that goes well beyond masonry structure design
EdiLus is a modular solution (composed of EdiLus-Concrete, EdiLus-Masonry, EdiLus-Steel) and can be purchased via a subscription to one or more modules. This means that each client can choose the most appropriate configuration that best addresses their professional needs. As an example, structural engineers that deal mainly with masonry structure design, can subscribe to EdiLus-Masonry only.
For those that need to calculate mixed structures (masonry + steel or masonry + reinforced concrete), or want to calculate buildings with different structural member types, (steel and reinforced concrete) can choose to subscribe to multiple modules (EdiLus-Concrete and EdiLus-Steel) with the advantage of still having a single solution, which covers all structural design and calculation aspects while maintaining a single program interface.
Analysis of traditional or reinforced masonry buildings
EdiLus-Masonry performs the analysis of traditional or reinforced masonry buildings, even with special interventions with reinforced shotcrete, carbon fibers, etc… For mixed structures, the insertion of reinforced concrete and wooden elements is also supported.
From a “simple drawing” using objects (walls, beams, columns, slabs, staircases, roofs, ties, etc.) quickly obtain the entire analytical model ready for calculation with materials, load analysis and verifications, etc.
EdiLus-Masonry calculates the building in its entirety by automatically generating a sophisticated analytical structural model that takes into account all elements typical of a masonry building (reveals, lintels, edge beams, beams defined with generic materials, brickwork columns, arches and vaults, balconies, etc.).
A Masonry design software that automatically proceeds to:
- Identifying the resistant wall elements
- Carries out verifications
- Local verifications (tilting and façade bulging)
- Design and testing of reinforced concrete foundations
EdiLus-Masonry is a highly rigorous calculation program, in fact, the schematic diagram with triangular HP-SHELL elements with variable thickening, allows you to know the actual stress state of each masonry element and in each point.
EdiLus-Masonry also checks the actual distribution of stresses in Non-linear analysis.
Integration with Edificius
Thanks to the interaction between Edificius and EdiLus it is also possible to make Architecture and Structural engineering interact by seamlessly designing and calculating all structural elements.
Calculation of structural elements in reinforced concrete integrated within a masonry structure
In predominantly masonry structures, EdiLus-Masonry allows you to insert reinforced concrete elements to model the sub-structure foundations or small attached masonry buildings. You can also add a limited number of columns/shear walls, beams, walls, slabs, foundation slabs, floors and stairs to the structure too.
The maximum number of elements that can be added can be consulted in the program features comparison table of the three EdiLus solutions: EdiLus-Concrete, EdiLus-Masonry and EdiLus-Steel.
Complex wooden elements become simple
With EdiLus-MA, you can model complex elements such as wooden trusses with a neat parametric input to rapidly specify composition, size and geometry for every need. A masonry design software with dedicated tools to automate purlin input and their connection: even building up a very complex roof top becomes extremely simple!
Calculations and wooden member connections
Wooden members are verified for compressive-bending, shear and buckling also considering the possible inclination of the stress vector.
You can design and verify wood-wood connections where the software proceeds to appropriately shape each member at their contact points. Connections are defined in detail together with notches and support regions to run a comprehensive Contact Point Verification.
