ImageGrafix Software FZCO - ds-Tank3D Release Features

New Enhancements in ds-Tank3D in release 2021R1 and 2021R2

  • Export to dsAppManager older version file format Use the latest and greatest features of the current version but export design files to an older dsAppManager version file format for use by ones who have not yet migrated to the latest version
  • Know product license availability and checkout appropriate license type to suit current project foundation design needs
  • Specify if the loads are being applied at the top of the pier or at the base of the footing providing complete flexibility to specify this option right before design
  • Specify both Natural Grade Elevation and Final Grade Elevation for use in design
  • Complete a single mat design in Mat3D Design Mode reducing foundation design time
  • Complete a footing group design in Mat3D Design mode eliminating guesswork and time-intensive effort in determining foundation sizes that will work under a structure’s support columns
  • See Mat3D automatically create spread, combined and mat footings based on user-specified design criteria eliminating the need to guess different footing sizes
  • Easily determine if a single mat is a better option than individual footings under a structure’s support columns reducing overall design time
  • Create multiple load combination sets  each with a specific “Use For” case such as Bearing, Stability, Sliding, Concrete Design and more helping adhere to many international concrete design codes
  • Clone one or more load combination sets from an existing load combination set minimizing load combination creation time
  • Complete tank ringwall foundation design for small and large storage tanks helping to complete this type of design with various user specified options in seconds
  • Specify different concrete parameters for footing and pier such as concrete compressive strength, unit weight of concrete helping to optimize foundation design with respect to concrete strength usage
  • Specify different reinforcing steel parameters for footing and pier such as yield strength, unit weight of steel helping you optimize foundation design with respect to rebar strength usage

The tank foundation design solution ds-Tank3D completes ringwall type foundation design for small and large storage tanks. It completes bearing capacity, stability, sliding, uplift analysis and concrete design, all in one integrated environment. ds-Tank3D is hosted in the application framework called dsAppManager as a separate product and can also be saved as a type of workspace in Foundation3D.

Main Features

Multiple Projects: Create multiple projects and organize them according to the design needs

Multiple Tank Workspaces: Create multiple tank workspaces in each project to keep various tank designs in one location

International Design Codes: Supports many concrete design codes to help complete  global projects

User Defined Parameters: Provides many user defined parameters such as consider or not consider soil frictional and/or passive resistance to resist overturning, sliding uplift, hoop tension, choice of safety factors in overturning, sliding, uplift, and many others to help meet various types of project specifications

Many Tank Input Parameters: Allows input of various tank parameters such as product load, test load, internal pressure loads, wind & seismic loads, twisting moment etc.

Load Cases and Combinations: Generates commonly used load cases and combinations for tank ringwall design saving significant design time

Hoop Tension and Twisting Moment Analysis: Completes hoop tension and twisting moment calculations for each load combination

Concrete Design: Completes concrete design for applied axial loads, shears and moments providing a complete structural solution

Rebar Layouts: Provides multiple rebar layouts with customization options for hoop tension and longitudinal bars in the ringwall

Detailed Design Sketches: Generates a detailed design sketch with plan, elevation and section allowing to summarize the completed design effectively

Report Selection Options: Allows report customization by selecting report sections to include in the report for internal or client needs
