ASCE 41 - What Gives?!?

Lately I have found myself doing a lot of seismic retrofits of existing structures.

These buildings are often analyzed utilizing ASCE 41 and I have a few complaints with the standard that I have not found answers too... hopefully someone reading this site can help me out with these.

Revit Rebar Bender

How awesome would it be to have an easy to use, rebar drafting drawing tool in revit, getting minimum bend radii for any type of rebar? For some reason Autodesk has never released one of these and you would think it would be easy low hanging fruit for them to tackle. ...

Time Histories to Response Spectrums

I have inherited an awesome project through the most unfortunate circumstances, the loss of a great engineer moving onto bigger and brighter pastures.

The project is going to be an ASCE 41 non-linear dynamic analysis and has had geotech engineers involved in picking out ground motion that represent similar ground motions that the ...

Revit Addin

Making a revit addin has been a goal of mine for some time. Yesterday I finally succeeded, complete with ridiculous names, images and tasks completed.

The addin is simple and essentially useless, it assigns walls of a certain type to a workset (Github).

Revit Rebar Bender - New and Improved

Above is my first functional C# revit add-in, making bending rebar at any angle an easy task. For those non-structural engineers, the smaller the piece of rebar, the smaller the allowable bend. Being able to quickly sketch rebar to scale with minimum bend radii is ...

Ray Caster Algorithm

Now that the user interface for the concrete tool is up and running, I need to start working on the concrete analysis.

The first order of business is a meshing algorithm for the concrete shape. 

I do not know exactly ...
