Rhino/Grasshopper and SAPFIR module will interact directly through this plugin to create and edit the BIM model. It may be done with Grasshopper visual script interface. The live and associative interaction allows the user to create projects of different complexity.
The article describes how to model thermal loads in SAPFIR. To model the thermal loads in LIRA-CAD module of the program, use the specialised tools available on the "Analytics" tab, on the "Analytical load" panel, in the "Loads" drop-down list.
The construction of finite element meshes is an important stage of solving the problem of determining the SSS of structures. This stage is associated with satisfaction of a number of contradictory requirements.
Automatic generation of wind load according to Building Code. The positive and negative wind pressure is generated on the example of a multi-storey building with account of different parameters (wind region, terrain category, constructional and aerodynamic coefficients).
Dynamic link with other programs through DXF, IFC and SAF formats.
Generator system for simulating complex structures.
SAPFIR plug-in to Rhino and Grasshopper.
BIM integration between SAPFIR and Allplan through IFC format.
Step-by-step guide for novice users of the LIRA-FEM software, which reveals the basics of finite element analysis. In this videoguide you will learn how to create and analyse the model of RC monolithic building in LIRA-SAPR.
