New release of general-purpose structural analysis tool supports 25 international codes
Hexagon‘s Asset Lifecycle Intelligence division has launched GT Strudl 41, the latest release of the structural engineering software for a range of industries, including power, civil engineering, marine, and infrastructure.
According to the company, the new version allows engineers to build, assess and report on structural systems of ‘any size’ in accordance with more than 25 international structural code standards.
This includes ASCE-7, allowing for the generation of wind loads on open and enclosed structures (including sloped roofs); AISC Code, with the possibility of using of multiple editions and for the same file to be reused for rework; and Nuclear code support, including N690.
GT Strudl 4 ‘fully integrates’ with Smart 3D, ISIP, CAESAR II, CADWorx Structure, Dimensional Solutions MAT 3D, and SDS/2.
The software’s capabilities include: linear and nonlinear static and dynamic analysis; base plate modelling and analysis; multi-material beam and FEA analysis; specification-driven design; reinforced concrete design and more.
“This new release of GT Strudl has been designed to help engineers deliver unparalleled safety across a range of critical industries. It will help them improve the accuracy and reliability of structural systems and ensure compliance with all codes and regulations while enhancing collaboration between structural engineers, designers, and pipe stress engineers,” says Ravindra Ozarker, senior product owner at Hexagon.
“The new version also includes updated internal tools, greater integration with popular design software, and expanded functionality, making it more user-friendly than ever.”
