Minor improvements and corrections

CYPECAD version 2023.d includes the following improvements and corrections of the program for certain cases:

  • Envelope > Forces in beams
    • An error that used to occur upon selecting “Envelope > Forces in beams” when one of the older concrete codes supported by the program was selected for the job has been fixed.
    • An error that occurred upon selecting “Envelope > Forces in beams” when the combinations selected by default were not active because there were no elements of that type in the current floor, has been solved. This occurred, for example, when trying to check the envelopes or combinations in a floor in which only concrete elements had been defined when, by default, the “Laminated steel” combinations were active due to the fact that these were the last combinations checked in the last job that was opened.

  • Project > General options > Limit drift between floors due to seismic action
    An error that occurred when selecting “Project > General options > Limit drift between floors due to seismic action” if the job had no seismic code activated has been fixed.

  • Changing column material
    An error that occurred when changing the material of a circular column from steel to timber has been fixed.

  • “Drift between floors due to seismic action” report
    • The “Drift between floors due to seismic action” report has been improved when considering the second-order effects of seismic action.
    • An error that occurred in the “Drift between floors due to seismic action” report when selecting “Interaction with the structure” in “General data > Building elements” has been fixed.
