CSI Perform 3D is a useful software that can be analyzed nonlinearly for the construction of complex structures including shear wall structures on the basis of different resistance and deformation modes. The model geometry can be read from the SAP2000 or ETABS program. Various types of elements can be used in the program including beams, brackets, shear walls, floor slabs, dampers and separators. Nonlinear analyzes can be performed statically or dynamically on a model. Loads can be applied to structures at different stages. For example, the earthquake’s dynamic load can be entered after the nonlinear static charge.
CSI Perform has powerful performance-based design capabilities and can calculate capacity ratios for all components and for limit states. Performance evaluation is based on ATC-40, FEMA-356 and ATC-440 automatically. CSI Perform outputs include capacity / need ratios, static nonlinear graphs, energy balance displays, modes, deformed geometry, and force responses and time history shifts. (soft98)
