ideYAPI / ideCAD

Don't things go as you planned?

Steel, reinforced concrete and composite structures can be modeled with analysis, design, and drawings in the ideCAD® Structural Steel. 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 (BIM)
Architectural, Reinforced Concrete and Steel Modelling are all in one!
By using ideCAD® Structural integration system, architectural, reinforced concrete and steel projects can be used in the same working platform.

Structure Types
Steel Structures

Highrise buildings, industrial buildings (including multiple halls, mezzanine floors, crane systems and etc.), canopy structures, sports facilities, stadiums, pedestrian overpass structures and many more can be analyzed.

Reinforced Concrete Structures
Structures with rigid, semi-rigid, and without rigid diaphrams analysis can be done. High Rise reinforced concrete structures, industrial structures, tunnel form systems, ribbed and waffle systems with A2 and A3 irregularities can be analyzed.
Hybrid Structural Systems and Composite Structures

Structures with concrete shear wall cores and steel frames, free standing steel roof structures, reinforced concrete structures with steel framed upper stories, steel-concrete composite beams can be analyzed. 

CAD Interface
Commutative Menu
Background, working platform, colors, menu locations, command groups, shortcut commands can be changed and customized.
Layers, Colors and Fonts

ideCAD's 3D options give ultimate performance which makes users to prepare and print their projects easily without any necessity to other cad softwares.

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.

Frame Elements
Columns and Beams
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
There are tube, box, W, HD, IPN, IPE, HE, UPE, UPN, Angelino and castellated beams defined in the profile library. By using profile edit commands, users are able to create their own cross-sections or combine with any other. Cold-formed steel profiles can be chosen for purlins and braces.

Connection Macros
Shear Connections, Moment Resisting Connections, Beam Column Continuity Plates, Column Base Plate, Brace Joint Connections, Purlins and Sag-Rod Connections, Secondary Beam Connections,Crane Beam Connections, Wind Column Connections, Truss Connections.
Truss Macro
Any kind of truss system without type and geometrical restrictions can be designed.
Space Truss Macro
Straight, Triangular, and Dome type space truss systems can be built in a symetrical and unsymmetrical way.
Hall Macro
Hall type structures can be created through edit menu by defining geometry and hall properties.
Crane Macro

Single or multiple crane systems can be defined in one model by creating custom crane datas or chosing from the library. Analysis and design will be performed with automatic crane loadings and load combinations.

Scaffolding Macro
Flange and H type scaffoldings are automatically created and their reports and drawings are prepared.

Story Diaphragms
Rigid diaphragm effects will be on the joint of the beam-column and areal object points.
Semi-Rigid Diaphragm is used in the cases which have 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 to shear walls at the basement.

The structure can be modeled flexible witout using diaphragms in 3D to obtain the results.

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
Connections are designed by following codes:
Turkish Steel Standards 2016 GKT (ASD)
Turkish Steel Standards 2016 YDKT (LRFD)
AISC 360-10 (ASD)
AISC 360-10 (LRFD)
Irregularities, Drifts, Cross-Sections and Connections are designed based on Turkish Seismic Code 2007.
Sheeting design is done according to the TS 498 standards. Structures, which are without sheetings are designed according to the TS-EN 1994-1-4
Hot-Rolled Profiles
Turkish Steel Standards 2016 GKT (ASD)
Turkish Steel Standards 2016 YDKT (LRFD)
AISC 360-10 ASD
AISC 360-10 LRFD
Eurocode TSEN 1993-1-1
Cold-Rolled Profiles
AISI S100-12

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.
Analyze Capabilities
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.
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.
Response Spectrum
With Eigen Vectors, Special Values, and Ritz Vectors design based on Spectrum Analysis. 
With Ritz and Special Values vectors Modal Frequency Analysis.
Temperature Difference Analysis
T1 and T2 temperature loads can be added to calculation while designing the structure.
Time History
With Direct Integration Beta Newmark method Linear Time History Analysis can be done.

Connection Design
Connection design is based on Turkish Steel Code, Seismic Code, and AISC which control geometric and strength requirements.
Hot-Rolled Profiles
Profiles are designed according to the tension, compression, weak and strong axis bending, buckling, deflection, and combined effects.
Cold-Rolled Profiles
Purlins and sag-rods profiles are choosen based on bending and deflection.
Composite Beam
Including the construction phase of beam design moment capacity will be found.
Castellated Beam
Compression, shear, vierendel, buckling and  biaxial bending controls are automatically done.
Crane Beam
Crane beams are loaded based on MBMA 2010's chapter 2.5 and analyzed according to composite effects, shear, buckling, and deflection.

Visualizations and Presentations
