The Construction Stage Manager (CSM)

The Contruction Stage Manager sophisticatedly decribes and controls construction stages and creeping analyses. The CSM thereby generates an input file where the analysis is then conducted by and with the usual SOFiSTiK programs ASE and AQB.



The attributes of the construction stages, the groups and loads are defined with the CSM.

The control is conducted via three tables:

  1. Construction stage table CS defines the applied construction stages
  2. The group table GRUP describes when an group will be activated or the corresponding attributes will be changed
  3. The load case table LC defines additional loads (g2, building loads)


Tendons are automatically activated as of the in GEOS defined number 1CS1 and as of 1CS2 they are considered as recumbent in the composite.
