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".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

  1. Change material properties between stages

    At present, users can change "beam, spring, mass, 2d element, link and cable" properties between stages. Introducing the option to toggle material properties between stages would be useful when you consider the following;
    In order to change material properties between stages, say for changing concrete from short term to long term properties, it is necessary to generate duplicate beam section entries for all elements, assign one set short term properties and long term properties to the other. Then a separate entry for each beam section property needs to be defined in the analysis stage properties window. If you had 100…

  4. GSA relative displacement output

    Relative displacement outputs of 1D element (DX, DY, DZ, DRx, DRy, DRz based on the local coordinate system of the element). Ie, relative displacement of two points. A rigid-body translation should give zero relative displacement for all components.
