3DMacro

For existing buildings

3DMacro, the revolution of macro-element

The revolutionary software for the analysis and estimation of the seismic vulnerability of new and existing masonry and mixed structure buildings. 3DMacro schematizes masonry walls using a flat macro-element developed in a university context, which simulates the main failure mechanisms in the plane of the wall panels and allows modeling the interaction between masonry and frames, present in mixed structures (confined walls or frames buffered

Features

1
Easy input process
3DMacro allows you to manage complex geometries and guarantees greater geometric congruence with respect to models, even with import from CAD.
2
Design on Existing Structures
With 3DMacro it is possible to design reinforcement systems such as tie rods and chains, reinforced walls, FRP and FRCM reinforcements in fibre-reinforced composite materials.
3
Nonlinear solver
A powerful sparse matrix solver that allows the evaluation of the load-bearing capacity of the structure in static and seismic conditions.
4
Easy and Clear Reading
The visualization of the results is simple and intuitive, giving a clear vision of the global and local response of each fiber.
5
Detail
Interaction between frame and infill in reinforced concrete buildings. Possibility of triggering settlements in the foundation
6
Reinforcement
Insertion, even automatic, of different reinforcement strategies, including the one at the nodes

Versions

3DMacro StartUp

StartUp is equipped with all the revolutionary functions of 3DMacro, but is dedicated to the modeling of small buildings, up to 800 square meters of floor space and up to 15m in height. It is therefore an innovative tool for the analysis and estimation of the seismic vulnerability of masonry and mixed structure buildings. It schematizes masonry walls using a flat macro-element developed in the universities, which simulates the main failure mechanisms in the plane of the wall panels and allows modeling the interaction between masonry and frames, present in mixed structures (confined walls or infilled frames).

3DMacro

Design and verification of reinforcements on existing structure

With 3DMacro it is possible to design reinforcement systems such as tie rods and chains, reinforced walls, FRP and FRCM reinforcements in fibre-reinforced composite materials (carbon, glass, steel, etc.). New facilities and a simplified input are available to characterize the wall typologies, with particular reference to existing buildings, and allows the automatic identification of the wall bays.

Nonlinear solver based on matrix sparse

The software has a powerful solver developed by researchers at the University of Catania and other institutions all over Europe, which implements the execution of nonlinear static analyzes with force and displacement control for the evaluation of the load-bearing capacity of the structure in static and seismic conditions.

Easy and clear reading of the results

The visualization of the results is simple and intuitive, giving a clear vision of the global and local response of each fiber, through appropriate damage indicators and interface stress diagrams between the macro-elements, as well as diagrams of the stress characteristics and resistance domains for each section of the finite element frame, with both 3D views and easy-to-read 2D graphs.
