Gravity Analysis with Load Take-Down Method

The Load Takedown Method distributes loads from floors onto beams, columns, and walls. The load is transferred down from the upper storey to the storey below and down to the foundation.

This analysis is mostly oriented on fast, yet informative analysis in early design stages and where gravity loads are essential for building design decisions.

The three primary objectives for this new capability are to enable engineers to:

  • Determine reactions on foundations in very early design stages when design work on the upper part of the building is still being done.
  • Understand building behavior to determine the best column layout distribution.
  • Get loads transferred to individual objects so that object-based code design is possible using traditional engineer handy design code tools or even spreadsheets.

The Load Takedown Method provides structural analysis results in the following forms:

  • Resulting loads on individual structural objects such as beams, columns, and walls coming from the floor load distribution, which can be used as a load input in external design applications.
  • Internal forces in beams and columns based on obtained resulting loads which can be consumed in internal design modules.
  • Reactions on supports.
Integration with the Revit Contextual Analytical Model

You can control and accurately create your Revit analytical model in the context of any structural physical model geometries.



The Analytical Driven Modeling approach for Revit introduces new enhanced structural modeling capabilities for analytical modeling.

The analytical elements are no longer created automatically with the physical model. The autonomous analytical model is represented by elements such as members, panels, and links, interconnected at nodes. The analytical model contains all the properties and data needed for analysis using tools like Autodesk Robot Structural Analysis.

Improved Load Distribution from Cladding to Members and Walls

Load distribution from claddings to beams, columns, and panels was improved in terms of quality and performance.



The following performance enhancements have been applied to load distribution:
  • Corrected load distribution on claddings with objects or elements carrying the load overlap.
  • Improved the performance of load distribution on claddings.
  • Improved distribution of linear loads on edges applied to multiple panel and cladding types defined as a single load record.
  • Corrected load direction on bars coming from cladding load distribution.
