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.
Full Compliance to Eurocodes with Singapore National Annex, and major international design codes for concrete, steel, and composite sections.
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 finite element analysis considers the stiffness of frames, shells, cables, tendons, and solid elements all together and thus providing most accurate FEM Results.
Blazing fast SAPFire engine can perform complex analysis in a fraction of time.
Capability to add tendons as force or as objects in the model thereby providing realistic results of building behavior.
Performance based design capabilities utilizing nonlinear dynamic analysis.
Dynamic analysis includes modal, response-spectrum, and time-history analysis.
P-delta effect to account for geometric nonlinearity (both global and/or local effect).
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.
Direct two-way integration with BIM system such as Revit and Tekla Structures.
Drawing generation which include RC frames and steel frame detailing.
Most trusted analysis and design software by major consultants all over the world.
