Isaac tool

Carry out rapid seismic vulnerability analyzes of your building, and pre-dimension Active Mass Damper systems.

Why do we want facilitate you the job!

 ISAACtool is the software developed to facilitate and speed up the work of our design clients.

Thanks to ISAACtool the designer can explore the advantages of adopting active control systems as a technological solution for seismic improvement.

ISAACtool analyzes the specific facility you are working on.

Simulate the behavior of the structure without the need for a model FEM.

ISAACtool automatically generates a lumped-element model of the structure, starting from a few input data that can be loaded using an Excel file, and executes modal analysis e time history.

  • MODAL ANALYSIS.
  • TIME HISTORY ANALYSIS.
  • "SHEAR TYPE" CALCULATION SCHEME
    customizable with reduction coefficients of the stiffness of the columns.
  • NON-LINEARITY OF ELEMENTS IN AC
  • MODELING OF INFILLS
    with linear or non-linear law of behavior.
  • MODELING OF ACTIVE MASS DAMPER SYSTEMS.

It independently calculates the vulnerability of the building before and after installing Active Mass Damper systems.

The vulnerability analysis is based on the verification of the elements in reinforced concrete in terms of ductile mechanisms (deformation capacity) and fragile (shear strength according to the cyclic shear formulation of the 2019 Circular). The results obtained also allow you to view the trend of floor shifts and stresses of the elements, as well as to monitor the characteristics of performance of the active control system for the purpose of its sizing.

How ISAAC workstool?

Reference legislation.

ISAACtool implements the provisions of the most recent Italian (DM 17/01/2018 "Technical standards for Construction" and the Circ. Min. N ° 21 of 21/01/2019) and European (Eurocode 8 UNI EN 1998) which govern methods of analysis and verification of existing reinforced concrete structures subject to seismic actions. The I-Pro 1 system, being an active control system (Active Mass Damper), complies with the international standard ISO3010: 2017, which regulates its use and experimental verification.
