Structural feedback – BIG ideas

This feedback forum is for your magnificent ideas for Oasys Structural software: major new features, significant changes to existing functionality, – suggestions that will impact on our development plan. These will be considered and prioritized in consultation with the Regional Panel.

You have 20 votes to distribute as you wish. You can reallocate votes at any time. Votes are released back into your pool when an item is completed (or declined).

How can we improve Oasys Structural software in a BIG way?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

    • AdSec COM Interface

      Make an automated/COM interface for Adsec so there's a streamline way to easily do large numbers of section analyses.

      • AdSec Batch Reports & Graphs

        AdSec can produce individual results for each section, but not for multiple sections simultaneously, nor can multiple graphs be extracted. It also means that even if a section is analysed the results are deleted as soon as we enter into another section. This makes extracting results a lot more long-winded than it should need to be. Ideally, all sections and cases could be analysed in one go and results could be extracted from all sections and analysis cases, so that one single report can be printed for submission. Thank you!

          • AdSec SLS M-N plot for a given crack width to BS EN 1992-1-1:2004

            It would be beneficial to be able to plot SLS M-N diagram in AdSec for a given section and crack width. This would allow us to plot multiple points within one diagram (easy graphical representation) rather than inputting multiple load cases into AdSec (and having a tabular output only).

              • AdSec explicit coefficients

                Include option to allow user to enter explicitly the coefficient values and factors for strain compatibility calculation so that we can modify to cater for different codes. Currently some of this is available in but it modifying the BS8110 parameters and thus cannot get rid of the “BS8110” when we print it out. This is with the hopes one day we can use ADsec for column calculation for…such as china projects, instead of relying on Xtract for that purpose.

                  • RC design add in for Excel to access Adsec design capability

                    Create an Excel Add In to access Adsec concrete design capability in a spreadsheet. (The steel one is fantastic)
                    We all need bespoke design tools on occasion, and rather than creating new coding for design we should be able to access a well maintained database of RC design coding.
                    (There is OvaSEA, but this is doubling up Arup resources to codify concrete design. Currently, it also does not access as many codes as Adsec)
