APM Civil Engineering


The calculation and design of structures for industrial and civil construction (APM Civil Engineering)

Civil Engineering the APM - the CAE computer-aided design of construction of civil and industrial use. This system is fully adapted to the requirements of state standards and building codes and regulations relating to the registration of a design documentation, as well as to the calculation algorithms. 
 APM Civil Engineering has extensive functionality to create a structure model, perform the necessary calculations and visualization of the results. Using these features will reduce design time and reduce the consumption of materials of construction of the object, as well as reduce the cost of design work and construction in general. Available in APM Civil Engineering and graphical system design tools allow you to solve a wide range of tasks:
  • design metal structures of all types for different types of loading and securing with automatic selection of cross-sections (check the bearing capacity of SNIP) and generation of standard metalwork assemblies drawings
  • the full range of necessary calculations of reinforced concrete structures with automatic selection of the valve settings for limit states of first and second groups in accordance with the joint venture
  • design wooden structures, including the selection of punched metal plates and dowel bars into the ground connection, as well as receive cutting schemes for all elements of construction 
  • perform the calculation of the single, tape and solid concrete bases
  • to determine the parameters of bolted and welded connections
  • create design documentation
  • used in the design supplied by the database of standard parts and construction elements, materials and cross-sections, as well as create their own databases for specific tasks
  • create a database of these projects, including design documents, design models, drawings, etc.


CAE system APM Civil Engineering includes:

  • integrated drawing and graphical environment
  • database and a database management system (DBMS)
  • Estimated kernel - module of finite-element analysis APM Structure3D
  • calculating unit bolted, welded and riveted joints APM Joint
  • tools automatically generate finite elements of constant and variable in steps, with the possibility of interactively change the partition settings
  • means import geometry design models from third-party image editors using STEP and DXF formats

Design of steel structures

With APM Civil Engineering, you can:

  • in whole or in part to prepare geometric model of metal, using a library of the most common types of schemes
  • validate bearing capacity and automatically choose the optimal cross-section of the rod member (according to the criteria of strength and stability, as well as in accordance with the requirements of SNIP II-23-81 *) from a library of standard cross-sections either prepared by the user of the library 
  • automatically receive drawings of standard units of metal structures of compounds
  • to calculate the welds node elements, as well as the calculation of group bolting
  • prepare design drawings projection model as a whole and its individual components
  • get the flow chart (on the material and profiles) on the elements of metal

Design of Concrete Structures

With APM Civil Engineering, you can:

  • submit a model of building concrete structures in the form of a combination of elements of columns, beams, girders, slabs, plates and shells
  • calculated design stress combinations (DCS)
  • to perform the selection of reinforced concrete elements (rectangular, tee, I-beam, round and ring) under the rules of the joint venture 52-101-2003 for the first and second groups of limit states for the most dangerous combination of internal power factors, applied to the design element
  • hold projecting and checking calculation of reinforced concrete elements 
  • get convenient format for the calculation results, including the real picture of the placement of reinforcement in concrete volume element

Design of masonry and reinforced masonry construction projects

With APM Civil Engineering, you can:

  • to design a low-rise building construction, cottage building, the walls of frame buildings, walls of buildings, columns t. n.
  • use materials such as ceramic and calcium silicate bricks, concrete blocks, natural stones regular geometric shape, concrete stones, etc. d.
  • conduct calculations in accordance with SNIP II-22-81 «stone and reinforced masonry structures"

Design of foundations

APM Civil Engineering allows you to:

  • calculate single, belt, solid and pile foundations
  • by layering summation bed automatically calculate coefficients of linear and angular displacements of foundations (sediment and roll)
  • pick reinforcement scheme
  • perform calculations according to the joint venture and the joint venture 50-101-2004 50-102-2003


Design of timber structures

The specific calculation of wooden structures in the APM Civil Engineering is that:

  • in the design of buildings, made of wood, can be used in existing APM Civil Engineering most common types of schemes
  • strength calculation of wooden structural elements is performed by finite element method and taking into account the requirements of the SRT 36554501-002-2006 (CNIISK Standard)
  • it is possible to automated selection of punched metal plates according to TU 5369-026-02495282-97 and nagelnyh connections
  • is provided on the output of drawings to print all elements of a wooden structure with the cutting parameters

Important : the design of the building structure in the APM Civil Engineering is performed in a single environment, so the building site in question may consist of a combination of metal, concrete and wooden parts. In this formulation, calculation and design of the building structure is carried out comprehensively, including foundations (single, tape, or continuous).Calculation of foundations, including the determination of geometric dimensions, soil sediments under the foundation and selection of reinforcement is carried out in accordance with SNIP 2-02.01-83. Bed ratio is determined by the method of layered half.
