Reinforced Concrete Building in Revit#
The following tutorial is based on the SOFiSTiK version 2022. The content and the project files will be updated to version 2023 as soon as possible.
This tutorial deals with a reinforced concrete building modelled in Revit. The main objective of this tutorials is to present the use of the Application for Revit called SOFiSTiK Analysis + Design.
If you click on the figure it will show up in original size.

Some basics regarding Revit’s analytical model#
What is the fundamental information you need to know about Revit before starting to use SOFiSTiK’s Application.
This training is based on a simple 2 storeys concrete structure, each floor supported by walls and columns and stiffened by beams.
Ground floor plan:
Floor plan Level 1:

Preparing the model#
Before performing calculation, it is important to correctly prepare the Revit model.
Setting the analytical model#
Since the calculation model is derived from the Revit formwork model, it is important to be able to control and adjust the geometry of the analytical model.
Once the geometry of the analytical model is set, additional information is required to have a full calculation model.
With a complete calculation model, several analyses can be performed on the model:
Linear analysis of the 3D model
Linear load take-down via 2D model
Linear analysis of the 3D model with effect of construction stages
3D linear analysis#
Analysis of the global model.
2D linear analysis#
Load take-down and analysis of 2D models of the project’s levels.
3D staged analysis#
Analysis of the construction stages on the 3d model.
With the results of the structural analysis, the concrete members can be designed to determine the required reinforcement and make all the verification or ULS and SLS.
Setting the project for the design of concrete elements.
Design of concrete columns.
Design of multi-span concrete beams.
Design of concrete slabs.
All the results of the analyses and designs can be displayed and shared, both within and outside of Revit.
In addition to the functionalities presented above, learn how to manage problems and find further information.
