The idea registered to probe the users' opinion on the usability of such feature:
The possibility to assign different Young modulus of concrete for different load cases to be used during analysis
- Instantaneous (live load)
- Long term (self weight)
- Medium (n=15)
- Medium seismic = instantaneous/2 (Seismic EC8)
It's bad that Robot doesn't have an option to display diagram of requred shear reinforcement area (stirrups) in RC beams and columns.
Now, it's just able to show stirrup spacing as a diagram.
As an addition to following post:
Please implement the design codes for New Zealand to compliment/ complete the existing code combinations (seismic etc). Especially as I believe Australian code development is being suspended with a view of adopting NZS codes (?). eg NZS1170...
The provisions of chapter 6 of EN1998-1-1 (EC8) must be included in Robot's calculations which concern Steel buildings for seismic response.
It is a major subject in seismic areas where Robot has only a limited use in Steel structures until now. Robot’s calculations concern only elastic behavior against seismic action and can be used only if we consider a value of seismic behavior factor: q=1.00-1.50. At the moment it is not allowed in Robot to be used q>1.50..
It would be great if we could apply partial elastic surface support to a panel by using a contour. There are many cases when dealing with concrete slab on grade design to have the ability to either vary the subgrade modulus over an area. When doing P.T. slab on grade design, one needs to only have a portion of the slab supported, thus the current surface support will not work. As far as implementation, being able to draw this in as a surface load on a contour would be great. For a variable modulus, one could use the 3 point contour.
Robot Structural Analysis 2014 still does not contain CSA O86-09 Code for wood structure. Is there a reason why Autodesk would not incorporate this? Is the Canadian market too small? Is there a timeframe for incorporating?
There are several stanard profiles missing from the libary
Those i have found:
TREC: all 100x60xXXmm, 180x100xXX mm, 200x120xXXmm, 450x200xXXmm, 500x300x20mm profiles.
In general there are missing more profiles with different thickness. I am more interested in getting more profiles, and the engineer then crosschecks the local steel factory for their standards.
Hope this is looked into.
Add a module, self standing, to check sections given only a torsor.

I love all Autodesk products than CSI Berkeley's ....but if robot or revit has the ability to design (RC &steel & timber ....etc) according to user defined parameters (local country code) not only materials that will be extremely usefull and serve a wide range of engineers around the world
