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.

    • Generalise section objects

      Extend scope of standard sections such that a section can be shared between GSA, AdSec, ADC and Compos.
      To facilitate:
      *• transfer of data between programs without data loss or complex manipulations
      * cracked section analysis
      * tapered sections
      GSA cold-formed section properties
      * Add cold-formed purlins/girts to section database
      * Accommodate Cee and Zed section shapes
      GSA fabricated sections
      * Incorporate advanced section property calcs.
      * Implement in steel design (in a general, code independent, way??)
      GSA section insertion points
      * Section offset/insertion point options (top right, top center, top left, middle right, centroid, middle left, bottom right, bottom…

              • Section LOR Steetley shapes

                The section wizard should offer Lang O'Rourke Steetley shapes as standard section shapes.

                • Proposal to develop a postprocessor for design of reinforced concrete shell structures.

                  Proposal to develop a postprocessor for design of reinforced concrete shell structures.

                  This proposal is based on the work we are doing on the White Rose CGS.

                  I would be happy to share my insight which is based on working with such tools developed in Norway the last 30 years. In addition I have been instrumental in the newest development of OO’s postprocessor, which is capable of doing simple nonlinear analysis by feeding back the stiffness to the FEM software and doing interactions.

                  The development should be made in several steps:

                  1. A stand-alone program with user input only. This…
