Abstract :
This dissertation is drafted in cooperation with ir. Pieter Baekeland as internal promoter and ir. arch. Sonja Asselbergh as external promoter. The research concerns a reinforced concrete beam, supported on both sides.
The first objective of this dissertation is to create an optimal workflow to calculate a beam as described above. This is done through a scheme, where each step is explained briefly and with reference to the Eurocode. Next, each step is translated into software by using Scia Design Forms. This results in the most efficient manner of calculation. Last, the optimal workflow is compared to the procedures used in practice, by means of a questionnaire.
The second objective is to evaluate Scia Engineer, a software package created by Nemetschek Scia, based on three different methods. First, several benchmarks are set up, to which the results given by the software are compared. Second, a literature study of Eurocode 2 is performed. The implemented formulas are checked, to make sure these are all in accordance with the Eurocode. Last, Scia Engineer is assessed based on a questionnaire, filled in by users of the software. This is done in order to find out which are the problems while using the software package.
One can conclude that the created workflow is a good guidance for any construction engineer, when making calculations of a concrete beam on two supports. When each step is carefully followed, a reliable result is obtained.
Scia Engineer serves as an accurate tool for any customer, to perform calculations on concrete structures. The results of the assessment however, show that the functionalities do not fully correspond with the Eurocode. On the basis of this dissertation, it is possible to optimize the software package even further in a structured manner.
