Since it was launched in 1993, Arche has become the reference software in Europe for designing and drawing reinforced concrete buildings. From a 3D model building comprising slabs, beams, columns, walls and foundations, Arche analyses the overall construction stability and automatically creates all the reinforcement drawings.
Arche Building Structure is a building simulation software that performs preliminary sizing while calculating load distribution, wind bracing and seismic analysis.
Arche reinforcement modules are dedicated to design, analysis and automatic production of reinforcement drawings of the structural components (slabs, beams, columns, walls, foundations...).
After you define the geometry, loads and general assumptions, a simple mouse-click will give you the stress and strain curves in concrete and steel, the deflections and, of course... the reinforcement drawings!
Arche also offers tools to analyse each section's geometric properties to conduct theoretical calculation and to produce lists of reinforcements. It also integrates a realistic rendering module.
