State of the Art Software for Structural Engineers
VIS Concrete Design Software was developed by CSI Italia. It is designed to expand SAP2000, ETABS and CSiBridge design capabilities to meet specific Eurocode requirements. Development of VIS started in 2004. CSi continues to make all software programs ever more suitable for the European market.
VIS is a software package for the design of reinforced concrete structures. These are based on the Eurocodes as a code of reference. It works in conjunction with the CSi programs. Such as; SAP2000, ETABS or CSi Bridge. VIS provides a family of plug-in tools fully integrated with these programs. These plugins are capable of enhancing their design capabilities to a higher degree of refinement. If you are a CSi user and work with Eurocodes in your concrete design, then VIS could be the software for you.
CSI Italia was founded in 1990, with the scope of representing Computer and Structures, Inc. in Italy. They not only provides marketing services for CSi but also assistance in the use of the programs, localization of text, manuals and codes, development of dedicated software, teaching and seminars.
CSi USA Computers and Structures, Inc. was founded in 1975.
(CSI) is recognized globally as the pioneering leader in software tools for structural and earthquake engineering. Software from CSI is used by thousands of engineering firms in over 160 countries. Used in the design of major projects. Including the Taipei 101 Tower in Taiwan, One World Trade Center in New York, the 2008 Olympics Birds Nest Stadium in Beijing and the cable-stayed Centenario Bridge over the Panama Canal. CSI software is backed by more than three decades of research and development. It is the trusted choice of sophisticated design professionals worldwide.
The Family of VIS Tools
VIS is a family of four plug-in tools designed to interface with SAP2000, ETABS and CSiBridge (the CSi programs). Of these, the main tool is also called VIS, the others are called SPF, Combinator and Section Cutter, respectively.
What they Offer
These tools enhance the concrete design capabilities of the CSi programs when dealing with the Eurocodes as a code of reference. The design is very detailed, providing complete information on size, length, location and spacing of all reinforcing.
Key Software Features
Design and check of concrete members based on strength, capacity, serviceability and code detailing provisions. Also, Eurocode based load combinations, modelling of concrete walls and seismic performance evaluation.
Microsoft Windows 10 (32 or 64bit), 8, 7, or Vista. Same hardware requirements as for SAP2000, ETABS or CSiBridge
