Masonry Design Software


Design masonry structures | EdiLus MASONRY | ACCA software

Enjoy all the advantages of BIM software technology with an integrated FEM solver for masonry structure calculations!

Design buildings with great detail in both traditional or reinforced masonry and automatically obtain structure stress states in every point.


EdiLus MASONRY is the BIM software for calculating masonry structures for new and existing buildings.

In a single graphical environment you can view the BIM model of the structure, FEM calculations, graphical analysis of the results and verification of particular interventions such as plating in reinforced concrete, carbon fibers, ties, prestressing cables.

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

Modelling of traditional or reinforced masonry structures with parametric objects input  - EdiLus MASONRY - ACCA software

Modelling of traditional or reinforced masonry structures with parametric objects input

The advanced BIM technology available in EdiLus MASONRY allows you to design structural elements in both two-dimensional or three-dimensional modelling environments by selecting the object characteristics at any time during the design phase.

Thanks to specific input functions you can proceed in accurately defining the geometry, the mechanical characteristics of masonry walls and of any structural reinforcements to be applied to existing walls.

EdiLus MASONRY allows you to calculate buildings in traditional or reinforced masonry, even with special interventions such as plating in reinforced concrete, carbon fibers, etc. For mixed structures, reinforced concrete elements can also be used.

From a simple "object-oriented modelling" procedure (walls, beams, columns, slabs, stairs, roofs, ties, etc.) quickly obtain the complete input of the calculation model with material definition, load analysis, legal checks, etc.

EdiLus MASONRY performs the static calculation of the masonry elements of the building as a whole identifying a sophisticated structural model that takes into account all the typical elements used when designing masonry buildings (jambs, lintels, hole wrappings, beams in generic materials, masonry columns, arches and vaults, balconies, etc.).

 

Calculation of structural elements in reinforced concrete and in wood integrated within a masonry structure - EdiLus MASONRY - ACCA software

Calculation of structural elements in reinforced concrete and wood integrated within a masonry structure

In predominantly masonry structures, EdiLus-MA 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)
  • wood elements to model roof tops, porches and other additional structures attached to the building.

EdiLus MASONRY calculates solid and laminated wood using the powerful and easy to use object-oriented modeling process. Elements can only be one-dimensional (beams and pillars) with rectangular and circular sections.

Design and calculation of solid wood and glulam elements - EdiLus MASONRY - ACCA software

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

With EdiLus MANSORY 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.

FEM model with shell elements obtained automatically - EdiLus MASONRY - ACCA software

FEM model with shell elements obtained automatically

The schematization with triangular HP-SHELL elements with variable refinement allows to know, from the modelled simple structure, the actual tensional state of the masonry elements in every point.

The HP-SHELL model allows you to take into account all the elements that characterize an existing masonry building (variation of materials, demolition and restoration interventions, unaligned openings, presence of different materials and interventions in succession over time, etc.).

Resistant masonry elements (wall bay and fascias) and the execution of the relating legal verifications, the analysis of local mechanisms (overturning and bulging) and the design/verification of reinforced concrete or masonry foundations are identified automatically.

You can check the calculation results using color mappings representative of: displacements, stress state of the masonry elements in every point, stresses, collapse accelerations, etc.

Graphical analysis of calculation results - EdiLus MASONRY - ACCA software

Graphical analysis of calculation results

Only with the modeling of the structure in strict compliance with the different types of materials present, without assuming any simplification hypotheses, allow you to check the calculation results using color maps which are representative of:

  • displacements
  • masonry stress states in each point
  • stresses
  • collapse accelerations
Prints and exports of calculation documents, comparison sheets, drawings, formwork layouts.. - EdiLus MASONRY - ACCA software

Prints and exports of calculation documents, comparison sheets, drawings, formwork layouts..

With EdiLus automatically produce:

  • Calculation and Technical Reports
  • Calculation Tables
  • highly detailed Working Drawings
  • Bill of Quantities

All construction drawings are composed directly within the program by simply dragging and dropping the single drawings into the working drawings layout already pre-formatted with a wide range of title-blocks.

All produced drawings can be printed or exported in standard formats including dxf, dwg, pdf, rtf, etc.

 
 
 
 
Free Technical support and Training ACCA is always by your side providing the technical support you need during your daily work

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.
