State of the art constitutive modeling capabilities provide for characterization of strength and stiffness degradation through component-level hysteresis. Beyond material nonlinearity, geometric nonlinearity is measured through P-delta effect, often critical to the realistic prediction of structural response at life-safety and collapse-prevention performance levels. Demand-capacity ratios pertinent to elastic response, and strength / deformation-based parameters indicative of limit state behavior and plastic response, combine with static-pushover and dynamic analysis to provide insight into where and how inelastic behavior will be achieved and advance through a structural system. Created by Dr. Graham H. Powell, University of California at Berkeley Professor Emeritus of Civil Engineering, PERFORM-3D is the ideal tool for nonlinear performance-based analysis and design

Software.

Image AddedPERFORM-3D is a structural-engineering software useful for the performance assessment of structural systems. State-of-the-art constitutive-modeling capabilities enable characterization of material nonlinearity, including strength and stiffness degradation during component-level hysteresis. Analysis capabilities also extend to geometric nonlinearity and effects associated with P-Delta behavior. Advanced modeling tools enable a sophisticated simulation of structural behavior. Components may be grouped according to type, location, and limit state before evaluation proceeds in terms of strength or deformation-based demand-capacity ratio. The dynamic display of D-C usage is available through color-coordinated time-history animations.
