SAP15x

SAP15x is a structural analysis program designed to supplement Structural Analysis courses (CE 15x) offered at the UP Institute of Civil Engineering. Unlike conventional commercial software, this application is designed so students gain confidence in performing matrix structural analysis and better understanding of the direct stiffness method. It provides utility to view quantities such as, element rotation matrices or stiffness matrices in local and global coordinates, structure’s global stiffness matrix, or equivalent nodal forces of element loads, etc. This provides...

wxAero

wxAero is the cross-platform implementation of AERO. It simulates physically-based rigid body systems. The introduction of inertial forces due to earthquakes and nonlinear springs and dashpots allowed application of the program in different research areas in structural engineering. The program was used by students doing practical applications of the rigid body-spring discrete element method (RBS-DEM).
