Special solver ASSEMBLAGE enables the user to simulate erection (assemblage) of the structure with account of frequent changes in design model as well as options to apply and remove assemblage loads, to impose and delete restraints and braces.
It is possible to change stiffness parameters of elements at some stages of analysis. This might be useful if it is necessary to take into account progressive hardening of concrete or changes in strength and stiffness of reinforced concrete elements during freezing – defrosting. At some stages of erection it is possible to perform analysis in physically and geometrically nonlinear statement.
In ASSEMBLAGE solver the user could simulate pretension of the structure (guy structures, anchors of sheet piling, etc.).
When simulating service life of the structure, analysis results obtained in ASSEMBLAGE solver may be used for further analysis of the whole structure on service loads.
