7 Reasons why Autodesk Robot Structural is the best Structural Analysis Tool!

Autodesk Robot Structural has become one of the best tools for designing, simulation and analysis of structures worldwide, being the first option in countries like the USA, United Kingdom, France, Germany, The Netherlands, Australia, United Arab Emirates, Peru and many more.

But what are the tools which makes Autodesk Robot Structural the best solution for designing and analysis of complex structures?

1. Calculation and Design by finite element.

The Designing and Analysis of structure by finite element arrived several decades ago to the world of structural engineering, since it displayed several advantages for complex structural analysis operations. A notably quicker and more precise process in comparison to a traditional type of analysis performed by pen, paper and the help of a scientific calculator, which may take up to several days or even weeks to complete.

At that time though two programs stood out in the academic world as the best in their class, CSI SAP2000 and STAAD.Pro

Autodesk Robot offers options as interesting as the calculation of steel connections, wood structures, automatic generation of shear and bending moment diagrams, slabs, torsion effects on sections, quick punching analysis, among many other alternatives, all in an easy to understand graphic interface, whether you are a professional in the designing and analysis of a structure, or an engineer or an architect wanting to expand its knowledge of advanced structural analysis.

2. Calculation Capabilities and reliable results.

Autodesk one of the major software companies in the world, has put all of its means for giving Autodesk Robot Structural the best analysis and processing capabilities in the market, surpassing many similar programs, which signifies a big reliability and precision of data output.

3. Interoperability and dynamic workflow.

Autodesk Robot Structural is an essential BIM tool for both architectural design and construction, since it perfectly integrates with BIM software such as Autodesk Revit or Navisworks, or design software such as Autodesk AutoCAD, AutoCAD Structural Detailing among many others, with the big advantages that this implies for our own workflow, costumers and coworkers.

If you work already with either Autodesk Advance Steel or Revit Structure you can directly import the analytical model to Robot Structural and automatically obtain the Dead Load of it.

Furthermore, complex elements such as steel connections and rebar design can be directly exported to Revit Structure, facilitating the generation of the detail drawings.

4. Autodesk Robot Structural Automatic Calculation Functions.

This is not an exclusive advantage, but Autodesk Robot automatically calculates the structure's dead load and reactions on the supports, using only the sections and dimensions of each component in the structure as reference, without the need of manually calculating the weight of the structure.

5. Productive Implementation.

Autodesk Robot Structural is designed so engineers and architects can work productively.

One of the key features offered by  Autodesk Robot Structural is the capacity of providing quick and precise results, thus improving the user's efficiency and productivity.

The system of algorithms of Autodesk Robot Structural allows the analysis of multiple structural configurations, so the engineers can quickly determine the best set of solutions.

6. Calculation, Regulations and International Design Codes.

Unlike other tools, specialized in one specific geographical zone or language, Autodesk Robot Structural is the international software of choice.

Autodesk Robot Structural includes multiple regulations, codes and even materials and specifications from all around the world.

This allows the structural design experts to work with specific regulations for each country or region, in the units and specific design codes. Along with a wide database of materials and sections and more than 70 built-in design codes from multiple countries.

Autodesk Robot Structural also includes 40 international steel codes and 3 reinforced concrete codes.

Also Autodesk Robot Structural is multilingual being capable of representing our project in more than 14 different languages, including English, Chinese, French, Portuguese, Japanese, Russian,, Greek, Polish etc.

7. Easy to Learn.

Autodesk Robot Structural is on the friendliest and most accessible structural analysis software in the market.

Even if you have never worked with any Structural Analysis software before, Autodesk Robot's intuitive graphical interface will quickly allow you to display the results for the analysis of stresses and internal forces in clear and precise fashion.

And from there, you will be able to obtain the results for proposing the best sections regarding both safety and economy.

This alone makes Autodesk Robot one of the best tools for structural analysis and simulation.
