CADAM2D (Computer Analysis of DAMs) is a software that has been primarily designed to support the learning of structural stability evaluation principles of concrete gravity dams. CADAM2D is also used to support research and development on the structural behavior and safety of concrete dams. CADAM2D is developed in a university context and has no commercial aspect. CADAM2D is based on the gravity method (rigid body equilibrium and beam theory). It performs stability analyzes for hydro-static loads and seismic loads.
CADAM2D has been offered free since 1997 for educational purposes only. However, we are aware that the product is heavily used commercially by many users. For this reason, we have removed from the software the possibility of generating new models as well as modifying the geometry. However, several models are available to allow users to familiarize themselves with the stability calculations of hydraulic concrete structures. If you would like to use a stability analysis software in your commercial activities, we offer CADAM3D.
RS-DAM is a computer program that was primarily designed to provide a computational tool to evaluate the transient response of a completely cracked concrete dam section subjected to seismic loads. RS-DAM is also used to support research and development on structural behavior and safety of concrete dams.
The program calculates wind, seismic, rain, snow, snow drift and LL reductions. It also has a dead and live load generator. The code search program will provide you with all pertinent code loads in just minutes. It supports the International Building Code (2000 - 2021), ASCE 7 (1998 - 2016), and other codes based on these codes such as California, Florida, Ohio, NFPA 5000, etc. Click here for more information.

The most easy to use anchor design software has been improved to also be the most powerful. The MKT Anchor Design software V2.1.2 has just been released and allows the designer to calculate seismic loads, including applying the Ω0 factor for your application. All seismic calculations are according to ACI 318-14 and allow the designer to evaluate every load factor and load combination possible.
The program will help engineers to design safe masonry buildings in the seismic regions of Europe. This development was initiated by the introduction of Eurocode 6 and 8 in Europe. These standards have become mandatory in the European Union starting from March 2010, and they enforce strong rules for masonry buildings in seismic regions. AmQuake is using pushover analysis and the equivalent frame method to check the seismic safety of masonry buildings in a graphical user friendly environment.

Capacity-Limited Forces - applied to EL loads for seismic load combinations for braced frame seismic design (e.g. SCBF, BRBF). The program will conduct capacity-limited design for beams and columns using braces' capacity-limited forces in lieu of the applied seismic loads.
FIGURE 1. Formulation of the non-linear inverse problem of ground deformations due to volcanic and seismic sources. (A) A change in the conditions in the deep reservoir causes a variation in the distribution of stress in the local crust and surface deformation. (B) Similarly, the sudden slip on the seismic fault during an earthquake causes permanent deformation. The ground deformation is detectable by geodetic surveys (in situ, blue triangles and remote sensing). (C) It is possible to model the observed data using a theoretical representation of the volcanic or seismic source. The inversion procedure is aimed at retrieving the parameters of the model implemented. The forward models available in VSM are, from left to right, isotropic point-source (Mogi, 1958), finite volume sphere (McTigue, 1987), penny-shaped crack (Fialko et al., 2001), arbitrarily oriented prolate spheroid (Yang et al., 1988), moment tensor point-source (Davis, 1986), and rectangular dislocation (Okada, 1985).
Nowadays, computer software programs are used more commonly for analysis and design. These programs account for the P-Delta effect, which means that if you use ASCE 7-16 Equation 12.8-16 with values from the software, you can divide theta by (1+theta) to avoid accounting for P-Delta twice. ASCE 7-16 Equation 12.8-17 must still be checked, nonetheless.
QUESTIONS ANSWERED IN THIS CHAPTER: How can an agency assess the threat of a security breach and take appropriate action? What steps can an agency take to secure computer hardware and software on a network? What steps can an agency take to secure the physical network? What steps can an agency take to secure data and maintain data integrity? Introduction Education agencies thrust into the world of computer networks and electronic communications are often unprepared for the related security risks and are unaware of many of the strategies that can protect their system. The agency's technology officers or technical staff working directly with Internet or intranet (i.e., internal networks, as opposed to the outside world of the Internet) networks will most readily appreciate the technical aspects of security presented in this chapter. Nontechnical staff should find the broader discussion of security helpful in understanding the absolute necessity for and value of securing all facets of the agency's network. Security is a process that focuses on ?CIA?: confidentiality, integrity, and availability. The recommendations in this chapter are detailed and extensive. Education agencies must be prepared for every eventuality ranging from a careless employee walking away from a computer station that is logged onto a sensitive data site to a hacker trying to break into the agency's system to physical destruction of the network by a tornado, hurricane, or earthquake. An agency involved in maintaining a computer network, especially one with Internet access, should use the information in this chapter to identify and resolve system vulnerabilities and in so doing reduce the risk of liability. The security recommendations described in the chapter are solid, fundamental business practices that are, for the most part, not unique to the education sector. However, because education agencies are responsible for ensuring the physical safety of children in a stable environment that fosters learning, the obligation to extend security precautions to online computer information systems is especially strong. In addition to student safety, other areas at potential risk include the confidentiality of student, staff, or financial data sent or received through the Internet; the integrity of intellectual property; and the investment in hardware, software, and other resources. When considering security precautions, education agencies in particular should take note that the greatest exposure to risk comes from within the organization. Internal agency employees perpetrate most network security violations. Malicious, or even unintentional, corruption of data, hardware, or software can be crippling to any enterprise. Illegal acquisition and disclosure of sensitive student information can harm a child and ultimately the school system. An agency should assess the legal and financial ramifications of failing to make a reasonable effort to secure the network and its many components. The following key areas for strategic planning organize the discussion of network security in this chapter. The following methods for securing each component of the network, whether a local or wide area network, are presented: security assessment; securing hardware; securing operating systems; securing software (applications); securing the network, including wireless networks; and data security. Security Assessment The first question to ask is what needs to be done to provide appropriate security for the agency's network? The total network is only as secure as its weakest link, and, as mentioned, most security breaches occur from people who work inside the agency itself. For this reason, the implementation of very simple security measures, many of which are free or are inexpensive, can provide significant protection for the total network. 2b1af7f3a8
