IES VisualAnalysis is an easy to learn software for general-purpose frame and finite-element analysis. Thousands of professionals leverage VisualAnalysis every day. They tell us it is "a great value" and "so easy to learn". Create frame, truss or FEA models of just about any structure. Sketch, generate, import CAD, or BIM (Revit). Easily apply loads. Distribute area loads to members. Gravity and lateral loading in the same project. Fast static, P-delta, AISC Direct, dynamic, and nonlinear. Proven and validated results. Check steel, concrete, wood, cold-formed and aluminum per relevant material specifications. Flexible and professional output with filters, sorting, and a page-preview viewer.
