Powerful structural analysis

Structural analysis software for structural engineers to design precast concrete floors and beams

MatrixBeam advantages

Qualitative design

MatrixLigger has everything for a thorough and qualitative design of prefab concrete floors and beams. Years of insights and experiences from industry engineers and software engineers from Matrix have been brought together to achieve a high-quality calculation tool.

Fast & powerful

Calculate one or many beams in an instant. Through a manual entry, or integrated with the CAD / CAM solution IC-Prefab, floors are quickly designed in a short time. Immediately provided with a representative report for clients, chief constructors and inspecting constructors.

From simple to complex

Whether it is a simple floor system or a complex prestressed bridge beam, MatrixLigger is the right tool. It provides all necessary tests for strength, deflection and fire resistance. Specific tests are carried out per floor or beam system.

The features of MatrixBeam

Structural analysis of precast concrete floors

Precast floors

MatrixLigger is an analysis program for the design of precast concrete system floors. The program has been specially developed in collaboration with manufacturers within the flooring industry. The following types of traditionally reinforced and prestressed floors are supported:

  • Wide slab floors
  • Channel slab floors
  • Ribbed floors
  • Combination floors
  • Beam floors
Interactive design

Strong in structural design

The power of MatrixLigger is in the design character. Based on default settings, a system floor is completely designed with few operations and a short lead time. The Matrix programmers have developed smart design algorithms through years of experience and expertise that design system floors based on requirements for strength, stiffness, stability, deflection, fire resistance and practicability.

Interactive

All MatrixLigger designs are a proposal. Each proposed design is interactively adaptable. This makes MatrixLigger no straitjacket, but it is an interactive design tool that helps you with maximum freedom to realize an optimal design that fully meets your own wishes and requirements.

Support multiple construction phases

Multiple construction phases

MatrixLigger is able to take into account the different construction phases during the analysis and design process. This allows for taking into account all forces and deformations during transport, during application, during deposition, during curing, during dismantle and during the use phase. Each property within the calculation model can be assigned to a construction phase, such as cross-section, concrete layers, supports and loads.

From single floor beams to entire projects

For single and multiple floor calculations

Designing is possible for a single floor, but it can also be done for all floors that occur within a project. The advantage of this is that the input is limited, that changes can easily be implemented in full and that the report provides a well-organized document.

Seamless cooperation with IC-Prefab

Seamless coupling with IC-Prefab

MatrixLigger functions as an independent calculation program, but can also be applied seamlessly within CAD/CAM application IC-Prefab. Once the floor fields in IC-Prefab have been determined, the calculation models can be automatically generated and calculated with just a few clicks of the mouse button. The calculation results are the basis for the IC-Prefab reinforcement generator to achieve optimal and practically feasible reinforcement choices. This makes it possible to perform both drawing and calculating in the shortest possible time.

We would be happy to advise you

Designing building constructions is a specialism and requires expert advisers. We would like to give you expert advice on the possibilities of MatrixBeam for the calculation of building constructions. Call us or respond via the website for a meeting with one of our consultants.
