CYPE Connect is a tool for the modelling, analysis and code checking of connections in steel and timber structures using the finite element method. The program includes the OpenSees© analysis engine, developed at the University of California, Berkeley, to carry out complete analyses. In addition to the designs and checks, CYPE Connect has a tool for generating sheets with the detailing drawings of the connections.
Prices for modules start at 5000 EUR (permanent licenses)
As StruBIM Steel is an Open BIM tool and connected to the BIMserver.center platform, it offers different workflow options.
Within the “Model” tab, users can enter a list of operations that are used sequentially to define the elements and geometry of the connection.
The entry order and the nomenclature used to identify each operation directly affect the way in which the connections are generated. During the modelling process, the program displays warnings about possible incompatibilities between modelled elements.
Stress / Strain
Clicking on the “Stress / Strain” button starts the stress analysis and checks. The first time the analysis is run, the implemented version of OpenSees© will be installed automatically.
Once the connection has been modelled, the analysis and checking can be carried out. The “Analysis” tab has the following options for this purpose
