ColumnBase is integrated software for analysis and design of column-base connections using three-dimensional finite element modeling.
This software provides a three dimensional model of connection parts (including foundation, grout, column, base plate, stiffeners, etc.) for finite element analysis, and by applying contact modeling analysis to connection parts in simultaneous loading cases, analyzes connection model and finally applies its results according to designing handbooks and standards. Outputs of this software have been proved by the most reliable laboratory experiments, and its accuracy is incomparable.
I invite you to view “ColumnBase” software. ‘ColumnBase’ is an integrated software for analysis and design of column base plate connections using three-dimensional finite element modeling.
Visual and user-friendly interface, easy to use and precise results.
In this software, all components of the connection are modeled such as the column, plate, stiffeners, anchor bolts, concrete footing, and grout.
Analysis results verified by several valid experimental tests and realistic simulation of base plate behavior is performed by using it.
Analysis results are used for the automatic design of connection components according to standards/codes.
