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. GSA case description display of envelope permutations

    In envelope cases, results are given by permutation rather than the load case no. Allow display by case numbers.

  7. Chart views have "case" drop down selector (and footfall charts have node selection drop down)

    Chart views could be made smarter by having drop down menus to select the case to plot, e.g. the modal analysis or footfall case - like the graphic view has. For footfall results it would be also good to have excitation and excitation node selection. This would remove the need to go through the toolbar menu every time the same chart needs to be plotted, for a different case or node selection.

    I’ve changed this to a ‘BIG idea’ as it would have a big impact on how chart views are handled. Currently the chart view is pretty dumb, simply displaying data that is passed to it and allowing some formatting adjustments.

    Easier selection of plotted results in GSA 9

  8. GSA reduced beam section (FEMA 350)

    RBS (Reduced Beam Section) MF connection option (eg see http://www.sdceng.com/images/RBSection_Sample_Printout.pdf)

  9. GSA user defined chart view

    User defined chart view where x and y-axis could be chosen from output results or analysis cases.

  10. GSA assemblies can include areas

    Allow assemblies to include areas from the design layer. With this addition cores can be defined using areas with topologies based on grid nodes - this would make it very fast to change storey heights (in the grid plane dialogue) and remesh the core with assemblies pre-defined. This behaviour would be a bit like how ETABs works.

    Currently the ability to use grid nodes that move with storey definitions doesn't match up with core walls meshed between stories.

  14. GSA option to import third party results

    Could be via Dyna PTF file, as Nastran results (and others?) can already be converted to PTF.
