CSI Perform3D v8 Full version download

CSI Perform3D v8 is nonlinear analysis and design software focused on displacement and capacity based building design.

Characteristics

  • Nonlinear features include a number of nonlinear building components such as frame hinges, shear walls, dampers, tie rods, and seismic isolators.
  • The analysis engine provides tools for performance-based design, including dynamic earthquake and nonlinear thrust analysis. The scan engine is 64-bit and has the ability to run up to 8 scans in parallel.

  • It includes a series of tools to measure the response of the model and evaluate the behavior of the structure, including elements of strain gauges and definitions of deformation capacity and resistance in elastic and inelastic components.
  • The limit state function can be used to aggregate response data in demand over capacity relationships to facilitate performance evaluation.
  • Models can be exported from SAP2000 or ETABS and serve as a starting point for your model.

What’s new in Perform3D v8.0.0

  • A new graphical user interface has been developed to provide improved functionality.
  • New display options have been added to control the sizes of objects and text on the screen, select between a dark or light color theme, toggle a view of an extruded item, and display the entire node and item numbers.
  • A new print preview function is available. Structural mode shapes and deviated shapes are available for printing.
  • Help documentation is now available from within the software. Context-sensitive themes are available by pressing the F1 key when using various forms and commands within the graphical user interface. Manuals and documentation, as well as online resources, are now linked and accessible from within the program.
  • Records of earthquakes and dynamic forces with more than 32692 time steps can be used for analysis.
  • The maximum number of mode shapes has been increased from 50 to 99
  • Analysis results and performance measurements can be displayed in the graphical user interface, replacing the need to read the results from binary files. Tabular results can be exported in XML, Excel and Access text formats
  • Tabular output can be configured to automatically save when analysis is complete. A table named set and table selection group can be specified to limit the output content for each tabular output file.

A new graphical user interface has been developed to provide improved functionality and graphical clarity.

USER INTERFACE

The GUI has been updated to 64-bit, allowing for storage of larger models and faster model manipulation.

Properties of individual nodes and elements, including identification, location, geometry, assignments, and loading, can now be viewed by right-clicking on them when viewing the undeformed shape of the structure.

Feature Image

Middle-mouse button pan and mouse-wheel zoom operations can be used when the graphically displaying the model.

The view of the graphical display of the model can now be defined by aperture angle.

DOCUMENTATION

Help documentation is now available from within the software. Context-sensitive topics are available by pressing the F1 key when using the various forms and commands within the graphical user interface. Manuals and documentation, as well as online resources, are now linked and accessible from within the program.
