How to perform Tubular Joint Check

Tubular Joint Check SDC Verifier

Tubular joints are usually used in the offshore structures surviving a fluid or an air loading due to their mechanical and structural properties or in a corrosive environment due to the manufacturing costs. A resistance of such joints is described in various standards. In SDC Verifier 5.2 it is possible […]

Implementing EN 1993-1-8 (2005) Bolt Check in SDC Verifier

Another great feature of SDC Verifier is described here. Connections made with bolts according to EN 1993-1-8 (2005) Chapter 3 can now be checked with SDC Verifier directly within your standard FEA program. For the EN 1993-1-8 bolt check the following checks can be performed: Shear connection A. bearing type; […]

Deflection Check / Serviceability check in SDC Verifier

Deflection Check

For civil engineering and many other industries, it is important to ensure that a structure meets the functional requirements – the Serviceability limit state (SLS). It does not involve collapse or strength of a building but impair it usefulness and stiffness. What is a deflection check The deflection of members […]

Implementing AISC 360-10 Bolt Check in SDC Verifier

SDC Verifier implements Bolts and Threaded parts (AISC 360-10 Chapter J3. specification). You can easily perform following checks for your FEA Model: Tensile and Shear Strength of Bolts and Threaded parts; Combined tension and shear in Bearing-Type connections; High-Strength bolts in Slip-Critical connections; Bearing strength at bolt holes; SDC Verifier can […]

Checking according to EN13001 standard in SDC Verifier

EN13001 standard in SDC Verifier

Crane Standard EN 13001-3-1+A2 Limits States and proof competence of steel structure is implemented in SDC Verifier. The standard is to be used together with EN13001-1 and EN13001-2: EN 13001-3-1 standard deals only with the limit state method. The allowable stress method is reliable in specific cases – for cranes […]
