REDUCE YOUR ASSUMPTIONS - IMPROVE YOUR RESULTS
Model reinforcement, steel sections, and prestressing details commonly assumed or neglected to be fully integrated into the model with ease, providing significant improvements to the model and its results.
PROTECT AGAINST STRUCTURAL FAILURE
Applied loads are virtually unlimited and may be sequenced in a multi-hazard approach with staged loading to simulate repeated or a chain of events, including earthquakes, fire, blast, impact, tsunami, high wind, and progressive collapse.
Extreme Loading® for Structures Software (ELS) offers a new advanced level of nonlinear dynamic structural analysis, which allows users efficiently to study structural failure from any number of actual or possible extreme events. Unlike traditional FEM software, users can easily model masonry structures with all as-built and as-damaged details, including both brick and mortar as separate materials. Users can also model complete reinforcement details, prestressing, retrofitting, damage, corrosion, cracks, and material weakening.
INCREASE YOUR KNOWLEDGE WITH PERFORMANCE BASED DESIGN
ELS provides an economic nonlinear dynamic structural analysis solution for use in performance based design allowing users to efficiently model and analyze structures.ults
Extreme Loading® for Structures Software (ELS) offers a new advanced level of nonlinear dynamic structural analysis, which allows users efficiently to study structural failure from any number of actual or possible extreme events. Unlike traditional FEM software, users can easily model high-rise structures composed of reinforced concrete, steel composite and other structures with all as-built and as-damaged details.
Model Progressive Collapse In Ten Minutes or Less:
In this short video we take you through the process of creating a small reinforced concrete structure to illustrate how quickly you can model and analyze a detailed reinforced concrete structure for progressive collapse in Extreme Loading® for Structures Software (ELS). Learn how to model progressive collapse ten minutes or less.
