Overview

SAP2000 is general-purpose civil-engineering software ideal for the analysis and design of any type of structural system, including stadiums, towers, industrial plants, offshore structures, piping systems, buildings, dams, soils, machine parts and many others.

Basic and advanced systems, ranging from 2D to 3D, of simple geometry to complex, may be modeled, analyzed, designed, and optimized using a practical and intuitive object-based modeling environment that simplifies and streamlines the engineering process. Created by engineers for effective engineering, SAP2000 is the ideal software tool for users of any experience level, designing any structural system.

Why SAP2000?

Full compliance to Eurocodes and other major international design codes

Full Compliance to Eurocodes with Singapore National Annex, and major international design codes for concrete, steel, and composite sections.

Comprehensive sequential construction analysis

Staged-construction sequence analysis that may consider time-dependent material properties, tendons and cable application with target-tensioning, as well as change in boundary/support conditions.

Full 3D FEM analysis

Full 3D finite element analysis considers the stiffness of frames, shells, cables, tendons, and solid elements all together and thus providing most accurate FEM Results.

Save time with our blazing fast solver

Blazing fast SAPFire engine can perform complex analysis in a fraction of time.

Modeling with PT Tendons

Capability to add tendons as force or as objects in the model thereby providing realistic results of building behavior.

Performance based design

Performance based design capabilities utilizing nonlinear dynamic analysis.

Dynamic analysis capabilities

Dynamic analysis includes modal, response-spectrum, and time-history analysis.

Directly account for second-order effects

P-delta effect to account for geometric nonlinearity (both global and/or local effect).

Moving loads, wave loads, and other advanced loading capabilities

Advanced loading capabilities includes moving loads, wave loads for offshore structures, temperature loading , strain loading, and loading by joint pattern which is useful to simulate hydrostatic or soil loadings.

BIM integration

Direct two-way integration with BIM system such as Revit and Tekla Structures.

Generate drawings and details easily

Drawing generation which include RC frames and steel frame detailing.

Industry standard for all major building/structure projects

Most trusted analysis and design software by major consultants all over the world.
