coordinatescursor

In RISA-3D, RISAFloor, and RISAfoundation the cursor now provides additional information regarding the cursor coordinates. As you move your cursor around on your screen, a box adjacent to your cursor will appear and populate with the coordinates of the cursor. The mouse coordinates that are displayed are the coordinates of the grid point or joint […]

RISAFloor does not record the applied area loads in a spreadsheet.  To simplify modeling, it instead assumes a default area load over the entire diaphragm area.  Then, you are free to apply area loads over the default.  Whatever is drawn on last will be considered the applied loading unless you are using an Additive area […]

flexible-diaphragm-instability1

In a model that contains both RISAFloor and RISA-3D data it is possible to define your diaphragms as either flexible or rigid for lateral design.  You can do this from the Diaphragms spreadsheet in either program: Rigid diaphragms will create a rigid link mesh in RISA-3D that makes the diaphragm act as a rigid body.  […]
