Build-X 2.0 freeware for Structural Analysis using OpenSees (nonlinear analysis)

Build-X 2.0 freeware for Structural Analysis using OpenSees (nonlinear analysis) Building Wizard 2.0 is a freeware, interactive front-end software for the seismic analysis and assessment of buildings structures, that takes advantage of a sophisticated, Open-Source software for Earthquake Engineering Simulation (OpenSees) to provide through its graphical user’s interface: (a) conceptual assistance during the finite element analysis pre- and post-processing (b) finite element model development automations and (c) expert advice for modeling various building-specific issues that are key for the reliable prediction of structural response (such as shear wall connections, soil-structure interaction etc). Build-X improves the efficiency and credibility of the finite element modeling developed, particularly for the case of complex buildings structures and gives the designer more control in critical modeling decisions affecting the overall system response. Version 2.0 developed by Nicos Psyrras Version 1.0 developed by Dionisios Panagiotopoulos, Nicos Gantsidis and Nicos Lesgidis Academic Advisor: A. Sextos More: http://ift.tt/2sOkeDw
