GSA Analysis

GSA Analysis Features



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


Non-linear elements

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


Non-linear 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


Nonlinear 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

Modal buckling of 1D & 2D elements, Non-linear buckling of 1D elements


GSA SwitchKeys utility 

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