ideYAPI / ideCAD

Don't things go as you planned?

Reinforced Concrete structures can be modeled with analysis, design, and drawings in the ideCAD® R.C. Within the software, structures can be analyzed rigid, semi-rigid, and without rigid diaphrams. High rise structures, industrial structures, and other structures which is compatible with Seismic Code are modeled. Frames and shell elements are integrated to each other. Under favour of integration the slabs, shear-walls, foundations, and frame elements can be analyzed and design in the system.

Building Information Modelling
Architectural and Structural Integration
With integrations of architectural, reinforced concrete and steel in ideCAD, software allows to create, revise and share projects with colleagues which minimize both errors and design process.

CAD Interface
Commutative Menu
Background, working platform, colors, menu locations, command groups, shortcut commands can be changed and customized.
3D Interactive Editing
Plan, perspective, cross-section, view windows, and 3D windows enables to create, move, copy, duplicate, mirror and offset the model. While working on one window you are able to work on another window without any interruption.
Command Window
Users are able to use commands while creating the projects in the ideCAD.
Editing Drawings
Snap tool, object choosing commands, local coordinates, smart tools for objects, transition between story edits and many more tools accelerate your project revisions.
Layers , Colors and Fonts
ideCAD 3D options has ultimate performance which makes user to prepare and print their projects easily without any necessity of other CAD softwares.

Frame Elements
Cross Sections
Rectangular, circular, trapezoidal, panelled, and polygon cross sections can be used.
Columns and Beams
Flat slab columns, story columns, inclined columns, and rectangular, circular, polygonal profiles can be choosen. For beams rectangular,t-shape, half t-shape,story beams, intermediate story beams, can be choosen in plan as an inclined and straight. From columns and beams it can be obtained 3D analytical model.
Strip Foundation
Rectangular, trapezoid, and semi-trapezoid foundations which stays on elastic soil can be modeled in 3D. Mat foundation with super-structure can be modeled in common which can assemble to global rigidity matrix of structure.
Pile Foundations
With the variation of soil layer properties, along the depth and joint part there exist spring which enables to create piles. Piles can be calculated in 3D with interaction of super structure.

Shell Elements
Slabs
Slabs can have a gaps and in order to determine exact load distribution in-plane deformations and outer-plane deformations are checked to obtain degree of freedoms, and also every joint has six degree of freedom and calculations are based on finite shell elements method.
Flat Slabs
In-plane deflections, shear, and axial effects of flat slabs are calculated based on assumption of semi-rigid diaphram.
Shear Wall
Shear walls with rectangular, I , T, L, U, C, and E shapes can be analyzed and modeled with Finite Element Methods.
On the center internal force diagrams are obtained and transferred to CSI Col software.
 
 
Stairs and Ramps
Ramps and stairs are modeled with six degree of freedom and they are interrelated with shear walls, columns, beams, and plaques. Joint points are connected automatically and analytical model will be otained.
Dome and Vault
It is modeled with six degree of freedom and perform analysis of structure.
Mat Foundation
Foundations with gaps, varying depths, beam and beamless are placed on elastic soil, and it is modeled as six degree of freedom shell structure.

Scaffolding Macro
Scaffoldings can be added through plan or from 3D views to the structures. H and flange type scaffolding can be analyzed and their report and drawings are prepared.
Scaffoldings are designed based on EC 3.

Foundations
Spread footing, coupling beam, deep foundations, and retaining walls are analyzed. Also their reports and drawings are automatically prepared.

Story Diaphragms
Rigid
Rigid diaphragm effects will be on the joint of the beam-column and areal object points.
Semi-Rigid
Semi-Rigid Diaphragm is used in the cases which has A2 and A3 type of irregularities. Purpose of this diaphragm is crucial at the  stories which is affected by forces and to transmit these forces at basement to shear walls.

Loads
Code Based Loadings
Wind and Snow loads are automatically loaded into the sheetings, purlins and sag-rods. Composite slabs load is transferred to the primary and secondary beams. Wall loads are calculated with considering the vacancies.
Point, Line and Areal Loads
Predefined loads, moments and displacement can be added to the joints. Along the span concentrated and distributed loads can be added.

Specifications, Codes and Standards
Earthquake
Irregularities, Drifts, Cross-Sections and Connections are designed based on Turkish Seismic Code 2007.
Wind
Wind forces which are acting to the stories are applied to the rigid diaphrams.
Steel Elements
Scaffolding elements are calculated based on Eurocode.
Reinforced Concrete Elements
TS500 and Earthquake code are used in design of reinforced concrete elements.

Analysis
Non-Linear Statical Analysis
In 64 bits programs with out of core parallel System Technology, program does Auto-Mesh command in Finite Element Methods. With Auto-Mesh command frames, shell elements is added to the Global Stiffnes Matrix and analyzed.
Mass Model and Dynamic Analysis
Single masses can be defined as horizontal, vertical and other joint degree of freedoms. Live load participation is determined by Seismic Codes. Eccentrical earthquake effects is added to the analysis of rigid or shell models
Response Spectrum
With Eigen Vectors, Special Values, and Ritz Vectors design based on Spectrum Analysis. 
With Ritz and Special Values vectors Modal Frequency Analysis.
Time History
With Direct Integration Beta Newmark method Linear Time History Analysis can be done.
Construction Phases
Time dependent retreat and creep effects are included in the calculations of non-linear analysis according to CEB-FIB 1990. Under favour of including these effects, in high rise structures dead load correction can be done which shows real moment capacity. In addition to these, after adding the canopy and covering, structure stability can be checked in anyt time.
Euler Buckling
Using Global Buckling analysis it is able to determine weak parts of structure and it gives idea about the general behavior of the structure. Linear buckling modes can be found in any of the load combinations, with the it will enable users to analyze unstable parts of structure.
Temperature Difference Analysis
T1 and T2 temperature loads can be added to calculation while designing the structure.
Structural Risk Analysis
During urban renewal project, determining the risky buildings analysis and evaluation report will be prepared based on relavant code and standards.
Performance Analysis
In 2007 Earthquake code 7'th episode, existing structures assestment reports and strengthening rules were changed.
ideCAD software is capable of design the strengthening projects and can prepare drawing with high performance.
Earthquake Isolators
Elastomer insulator, steel and rubber isolators can be choosen from library. Dynamic and time history analysis can be done.
Soil and Super-Structure Interaction
Foundations, plaques, and piles has integration with supper-structure that can be analyzed together.
