CSI SAP2000 v17.2

(Last Updated On: December 2, 2017)


The SAP name has been synonymous with state-of-the-art analytical methods since its introduction over 30 years ago. SAP2000 follows in the same tradition featuring a very sophisticated, intuitive and versatile user interface powered by an unmatched analysis engine and design tools for engineers working on transportation, industrial, public works, sports, and other facilities.

From its 3D object based graphical modeling environment to the wide variety of analysis and design options completely integrated across one powerful user interface, SAP2000 has proven to be the most integrated, productive and practical general purpose structural program on the market today. This intuitive interface allows you to create structural models rapidly and intuitively without long learning curve delays. Now you can harness the power of SAP2000 for all of your analysis and design tasks, including small day-to-day problems. Complex Models can be generated and meshed with powerful built in templates. Integrated design code features can automatically generate wind, wave, bridge, and seismic loads with comprehensive automatic steel and concrete design code checks per US, Canadian and international design standards.

Advanced analytical techniques allow for step-by-step large deformation analysis, Eigen and Ritz analyses based on stiffness of nonlinear cases, catenary cable analysis, material nonlinear analysis with fiber hinges, multi-layered nonlinear shell element, buckling analysis, progressive collapse analysis, energy methods for drift control, velocity-dependent dampers, base isolators, support plasticity and nonlinear segmental construction analysis. Nonlinear analyses can be static and/or time history, with options for FNA nonlinear time history dynamic analysis and direct integration.

From a simple small 2D static frame analysis to a large complex 3D nonlinear dynamic analysis,  SAP2000 is the easiest, most productive solution for your structural analysis and design needs.

SAP2000 17.2.0 Enhancements
The following Enhancements have been implemented for SAP2000 v17.2.0:
A new seastate load pattern has been added to allow the definition of pitch, roll, and yaw scenarios. Section designer now allows prestress tendons to be defined for any concrete sections.
Added the ability to modify the model geometry based on the shape of a buckling or modal case mode.
Scale factors are now available for time-dependent creep, shrinkage, and stiffness of concrete, as well as relaxation of tendons.
Automated response spectrum functions have been added for Caribbean countries.
Added a trapezoidal concrete frame section property. Aluminum tee, angle, pipe, and tube sections can now be added or imported.
Added concrete frame design according to ACI 318-14.
Added concrete frame design according to CSA A23.3-14. Added steel frame design according to CSA S16-14.
Added the Ireland national annex for Eurocode 2 and Eurocode 3.
Updated the Eurocode 8-2004 Norway National Annex to the latest version, EN 1998-1:2004 NA:2014.
Import/export between SAP2000 and Revit Structure has been enhanced to handle round-tripping. Other minor enhancements.
