StatiCAD-Yigma Professional Version 5

StatiCAD-Yigma Professional Version 5

StatiCAD is a computer program that performs static analysis and project drawings in according to earthquake regulations of masonry buildings.

In addition to all the features of the standard license, it is also possible of performance analysis and strengthening of existing masonry buildings in this version. In professional version you can transfer your model to SAP2000 and you can import from SAP2000 analysis results to StatiCAD automaticaly. Earthquake forces analysis and design analysis according to SAP2000 static results can be performed. 



Program supports many languages.

Supported languages are Afrikaans, Albanian, Amharic, Arabic, Armenian, Azeerbaijani, Basque, Belarusian, Bengali, Bosnian, Bulgarian, Catalan, Cebuano, Chinese (Simplified), Chinese (Traditional), Corsican, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Esperanto, Estonian, Finnish, French, Frisian, Galician, Georgian, German, Greek, Gujarati, Haitian Creole, Hausa, Hawaiian, Hebrew, Hindi, Hmong, Hungarian, Icelandic, Igbo, Indonesian, Irish, Italian, Japanese, Javanese, Kannada, Kazakh, Khmer, Korean, Kurdish, Kyrgyz, Lao, Latin, Latvian, Lithuanian, Luxembourgish, Macedonian, Malagasy, Malay, Malayalam, Maltese, Maori, Marathi, Mongolian, Myanmar (Burmese), Nepali, Norwegian, Nyanja (Chichewa), Pashto, Persian, Polish, Portuguese (Portugal,  Brazil), Punjabi, Romanian, Russian, Samoan, Scots Gaelic, Serbian, Sesotho, Shona, Sindhi, Sinhala (Sinhalese), Slovak, Slovenian, Somali, Spanish, Sundanese, Swahili, Swedish, Tagalog (Filipino), Tajik, Tamil, Telugu, Thai, Turkish, Ukrainian, Urdu, Uzbek, Vietnamese, Welsh, Xhosa, Yiddish, Yoruba, Zulu


Quick and easy data entry

Program has graphical interface for data entry. Drawn building on the screen can be viewed in three dimensions simultaneously. The program is quite practical for use.

For example , walls and bond beams are drawn at the same time. When the doors/windows drawn in the wall, program automatically divides the wall into two parts, it automatically  generates the horizontal bond beams on the doors and windows. It generates a piece of wall on the doors/windows and a piece of wall at the bottom of the window. You can select and edit multiple objects. Modelling process of a building can be completed in 1-2 hours. Reports and drawings can be taken in a single analysis.


Complete and Advanced Structural Analysis

Masonry building can analyzed  according to Eurocode (Eurocode8 and Eurocode6) or Turkish Earthquake Regulations (TEC 2007 or TBDY 2016).  The program automatically applies all formulas of the earthquake regulations for building with one click.

The greatest advantage of the program according to manual calculations and other masonry programs  is that vertical loads can be transferred between building elements and storeys automatically. For masonry buildings  load distributions are very important. Since the wall's shear strength is dependent on the vertical stress on the wall.  The shear capacity of the walls with low vertical load is much less.  The shear capacity of the walls are calculated with fvk=(g/t)*fvk0+0,4*sigmad. Because wall’s earthquake resistance dependent on the vertical load on the wall so walls with less vertical loads has less shear capacity.  A seemingly safe wall or building may be inadequate when loads are distributed correctly. The program reports the error rate in the result of analysis if there is an error in a vertical load transfer. At analysis, automatically corrects many of modeling errors. There is only axis dependence between ground floor and foundation. There is no other axis dependence between storeys. So nodes don’t need to be one over the other  for load transfer and static calculations. That provides program with great flexibility and enables it to model any type of masonry structures. The program uses analytical models rather than finite element method which is an approximation method. You can expect exact match between manual calculation and program. All calculations are made automatically in the program with one click.


Soluble Building Systems

Orthogonal –Non Orthogonal building systems (horizontal, vertical, or inclined axis)

Structures with half basement

Stepped Structures



Regulations that can be used in building's analysis:

Eurocode 8: Design of structures for earthquake resistance

Eurocode 6: Design of masonry structures.

DBYBHY2007: Specification for structures to be built in disaster areas (2007)

TBDY2016: Turkish Building Earthquke Regulation 2016

RBTE2013: Principles of Building Risk Identification 2013

StatiCAD-Yigma is fully compatible with regulations for masonry buildings.



Usage area of the Program

New masonry buildings

Historic masonry buildings

Performance analysis and strengthening of existing masonry buildings.

Urban transformation of existing buildings


Reported Outcomes

Pre-Analysis Reports

All of the data input parameters are given in the pre-analysis reports.


Post-analysis Reports

The analysis includes the calculations of the earthquake standards, geometry controls , load analysis , slab analysis , seismic loads calculation , shear center calculation, center of mass calculation, foundation subsoil stress and shear capacity , bending capacity , vertical stress and shear stress on the walls.

Drawing Output

Foundation application plan , wall plan , formwork plan , cross-sections of formwork plan , column details , foundation details , beam details , individual strengthening jacket details for each wall ( anchors , strengthening steel mesh , continuity rebar). Drawings can be exported in dwg/dxf format with hatches, dimensions and layers without any shape loss.



Basic Features of StatiCAD-Yigma

Easy to use and advanced graphics interface.

Overall structure analysis and design with one click

Side by side project drawnings with one click

Calculations of  half basement / stepped buildings

Optionally , column can be considered as contributors to the seismic behavior of the building

Strengthened and unstrengthened calculation reports and performance reports can be made with a single project file.

Strengthened jackets can contribute to the wall compression capacity

 Determine specifid stiffness coeffcient for walls

 Load factors can be changed manually for compressive stress controls and shear stress controls.

Loads are automatically transferred between structural objects and storeys.

Pressure and shear stress safety controls for the walls.

Different material properties can be entered for each wall , values can be taken automaticly from seismic regulations or, experimental values can be entered.

With an advanced drawn editor like AutoCAD , you can edit the drawings and make them dwg without any loss.

Capable of giving offset value to the elements.
