SkyCiv Structural 3D is a structural analysis software used by civil, structural and mechanical engineers, including architects and academic staff. The software allows users to build structural models and analyze shear, bending, deflection, stress, and more. The platform is completely cloud-based, enabling users to access their work and files via web browser, at any time.
Users are able to create and solve complex 3D structures with analysis on virtually any structure. SkyCiv Structural 3D's analysis features include deflection, (with X, Y, Z sum translations and X, Y, Z rotations), bending moment diagrams (BMD), shear force diagrams (SFD), axial forces, torsion, stress analysis, and full buckling.
SkyCiv Structural 3D enables engineers to visualize their structures with a powerful 3D renderer, as well as view the way the structure will look and deflect using color contours. Users can inspect the structure’s geometry, and rotate around the 3D model from each angle for a complete structural analysis.
SkyCiv allows users to save and load various sections from a library of American, European, Australian, and UK standard sections, as well as select a variety of beam sections, such as rectangular/square, hollow rectangular/square, hollow circular, circular, channel sections, I-section, L-section, T-section, and triangular. Users can also add a custom section, and preset materials can be selected from a drop down list for quick entry.
SkyCiv Structural 3D allows users to view and export their structural analysis text files in order to focus on specific results, with custom screenshots. The solution's unique "single member" function allows users to switch on specific critical members for a cleaner diagram view. Users can also download screenshots for reports and personal records. The platform allows users to store all files onto their SkyCiv account, which can be organized using the intelligent file manager.
