GSA  Benefits



Advanced interface

Manage and interact with the model


Modelling tools

Text, graphical and automatic creation of geometry and loads


3rd party links

Integrate GSA with BIM and other 3rd party products


Nonlinear elements

Compression-only struts, tension-only ties, non-linear springs, and cables


Nonlinear materials

Elastic-Orthotropic and Elastic-Plastic Isotropic materials


2D elements

Plane Stress, Plane Strain, Flat Plate, Flat Shell elements


Linear analysis

1st order static analysis


Staged analysis

Add, remove, and change elements and constraints within analyses


P-Delta analysis

Analyse for the changes in stiffness caused by load


Non-linear analysis     

Analyse for geometric and material non-linearity over large deflections


Dynamic analysis

Modal and Ritz analysis, including P-Delta effects


Dynamic response     

Seismic, Harmonic, Linear Timer History, and Periodic analyses


Buckling analysis

Bridge loading      

Lane and vehicle load optimisation for highway and railway bridges


Footfall analysis        

Calculate accelerations, velocities and response factors from pedestrian loading


Soil structure interaction analysis  

Combine structural models with nonlinear soil for foundation design


RC slab design

Design of reinforced concrete slabs and walls to international standards


Steel design   

Design of steel beams, columns, and braces to international design codes



Geometry generation for tension and compression only structures


Fabric analysis

Analysis of fabric non-linear materials


GSA SwitchKeys utility 

A small utility to allow those customers who have multiple variants of GSA shared licences to easily swap between them
