SAP2000 is a general-purpose structural analysis program performing a wide variety of analyses and design. SAP2000 has an easy to use interface allowing engineers to create structural models rapidly and intuitively without a long learning curve. Integrated design code features can automatically generate wind, wave and seismic loads with comprehensive automatic steel and concrete design code checks per Eurocode, US, Canadian and international design standards.
Advanced analytical techniques allow for step-by-step large deformation analysis, Eigen and Ritz analyses based on stiffness of nonlinear cases, catenary cable analysis, material nonlinear analysis with fiber hinges, multi-layered nonlinear shell element, buckling analysis, progressive collapse analysis, energy methods for drift control, velocity-dependent dampers, base isolators, support plasticity and nonlinear segmental construction analysis. Nonlinear analyses can be static and/or time history, with options for FNA nonlinear time history dynamic analysis and direct integration.
From a simple small 2D static frame analysis to a large complex 3D nonlinear dynamic analysis, SAP2000 is the easiest, most productive solution for your structural analysis and design needs.
