SAPFIR-3D 2019 R1 Release Notes

Structural engineering software LIRALAND Group

Last updated: 24 May, 2019


Design of RC structures

  • Types of pilot reinforcement (PR) are automatically generated and then assigned to elements of design model according to design procedures for slabs, walls, columns, beams in Design of RC structures module. In this module there is a system of user-defined settings that enables the user to define and assign the types of pilot reinforcement (PR). These settings are applied by default.

  • New option to generate and manage the asymmetric reinforcement in stiffness diaphragm.
  • Set of options to define zones of reinforcement in slabs: general reinforcement pattern, working length of rebars with account of anchorage, define zones by diagonal, define zones from centre.
  • Option to define different parameters for transverse reinforcement in beam.

SAPFIR-Generator

  • When *.spf file is opened, if the model contains import nodes DXF, then the program checks whether *.dxf files are available at the specified paths. In case such files are not found, the program displays message that *.dxf files are not found and import nodes are frozen. The warning that there is no related *.dxf files is not provided any more.
  • New node is introduced: 'Enhanced generation of storeys by specified levels'.

  • The Section and Material nodes are introduced.

  • The user could search for node by its name.

  • New option to show/hide the ribbon in GENERATOR in order to increase the graphic area.
  • New options to edit several objects: bake, freeze, unfreeze, hide/show all nodes in the model.
  • Commands to update the model (auto and manually) to speed up the Generator system.
  • The work in the 'Generator' dialog box is enhanced and optimized.
  • Nodes may be presented in colour (data defined/data not defined). Inputs of node may be also displayed in colour: red required to be filled, orange one of inputs (depending on type of data) required to be filled, grey data was already defined inside node, white no defined data inside node.
  • Enhanced node for cutting openings in slabs. It results in less time necessary for work and considerable reduction of file size if this node is used inefficiently.



Plugin for Grasshopper

  • For our standard nodes (wall, slab, column, beam, pile, prism, surface, points, lines) it is possible to activate the 'Properties of SAPFIR object' dialog box within the Grasshopper environment.

  • Input Param is added at nodes: wall, slab, column ,beam, pile, prism, surface, points, lines.
  • New nodes are added: Material and Section. When RC node is selected, the program automatically displays the node inputs where the user could define parameters for the section (dimensions b1, h1, b, h) or select appropriate materia
  • Generation of surfaces from Grasshopper is speeded up.
  • Surfaces may be generated by massive of closed 2D contours (lines).

Data Import

  • New tool that enables the user to automatically replace materials when the model is imported from IFC. It is possible to save corresponding settings and apply them many times in the current and other projects.

  • Modified geometric location for window infill during import of model from IFC.
  • Enhanced import IFC with cutting off the openings.
  • Enhanced import IFC from Renga.
  • Stairs are imported from IFC into parametric stairs.
  • Modified identification of parameter Interpretation of columns and beams where IFC option is specified as Load-bearing structure.
  • Import of elements from analytical model IFC.
