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).

  1. GSA RC slab design interface

    1) Design rationalisation:
    * Introduce reinforcement strips.
    * Provide convenient way of specifying reinforcement directions in a strip.
    * Offer strip templates.
    * Offer option to automatically rationalise reinforcement within strips.
    2) Offer code based deflection checks.
    3) Offer punching shear checks.
    4) Allow reinforcement direction to be wrt user axis
    5) Move to Design Layer
    6) Option to average reinforcement across defined width

  2. GSA GsRelax updates

    1) Improve convergence and make convergence criteria more transparent.
    2) Non-linear time history analysis.
    3) Review Spacers.
    - provide tool for the automatic generation of spacers
    4) Include all facilities of rest of GSA e.g. 2D elements, offsets.

  4. GSA fabricated sections


    • Incorporate advanced section property calcs.

    • Implement in steel design (in a general, code independent, way??)

  5. GSA design model


    • Member flags to offset to column faces and offset to top of flange.

    • Framework for coordination of analysis and design models.

    • Enable 'extraction' of analysis model(s) from design model.

  6. improve revit link

    The amount of processing needed on a GSA model of a slab and wall structure once it has been exported from Revit means that the models quickly diverge. The goal should be to maintain a single (BIM) model so that any changes in the geometry (Revit) model can be quickly exported to create a usable GSA model.

    Detailed notes from a GSA User (with no Revit experience) on the issues from a recent complex 3D model will be attached as a comment on this idea.
