5 WinSCADS General Overview (Cont.) 1970s – DuPont FRAME Program. 1980s – SCADS - VAX system using CRAY NASTRAN for analysis s – PC-SCADS, a DOS version (GT-STRUDL, PD- STRUDL, and STAAD) – WinSCADS - Windows-based version was released (Microstation-based graphics for model display) to date – User interface has been redeveloped to utilize OpenGL for graphics and to improve user interaction with the system. Historical Background

6 WinSCADS General Overview (Cont.) Hundreds of DuPont buildings have been designed by the system and the data has been saved on our CES server. When modifications or additions are made to buildings, we are able to utilize the existing models since compatibilities have been maintained over the years May build the same Facility at another US site or overseas. Design loads may change (wind or seismic) Historical Background (Cont.)

7 WinSCADS utilizes GT STRUDL for the structural analysis tasks of the system. As structural steel model evolves the information is uploaded as necessary to the 3D Plant Design system (PDMS). Final design model is transferred to SDS2 or X-Steel for electronic detailing.

14 WinSCADS Data Model WinSCADS model generation uses a system of floor elevations, intersecting column lines, bay widths, center lines of equipment, and other geometric object. Process is analogous to laying out an engineering drawings, familiar to engineers and designers working with the chemical and industrial facilities. The model is built floor by floor with the system automatically bringing the columns up to each level to create a 3D model.

15 WinSCADS Data Model (Cont.) Common elements like vertical bracing, floor openings and equipment supports are automated. Beams are generated as physical members rather than a series of analysis members. First cut steel sizes based on the gravity loading are generated automatically and added to the database.

16 WinSCADS Data Model (Cont.) There is a multitude of default values assigned to types of members to save time. Fixed ends for beams framing into columns Pinned ends for interior framing K-factors for columns and bracing Assigned UBL values look not just a member framing in but also direction. Others … Internally, WinSCADS generates database tables to store and manipulate all the input and output data.
