Monolithic Beam + Slab and Monolithic Column + Retaining Wall - Which Software?

[COLOR=#333333]Hello evryone,[/COLOR]

[COLOR=#333333]I am currently in search for a good structural analysis and design software.[/COLOR]

[COLOR=#333333]At school i used SAP2000 but i want something more practical, that carries out Reinforced Concrete and steel frame design to Eurocodes and prepares documentation ready to be handed in for construction license application.[/COLOR]

[COLOR=#333333]So i decided to try Robot Structural Analysis, mainly due to the Autodesk Building Design Suite, which is very good value for money and Robot seems to be a powerful software. I have started using it about 2 weeks ago and already i have discovered some weaknesses.[/COLOR]

[B]Modelling of monolithic beam + slab design

I tried to model and design an L and T beam, unfortunately with robot its not possible to easily define and model a T and L beam.

If you try to do this, the software takes into consideration the whole area of the rectangular beam + the area of the slab therefore taking the same area into consideration twice.

This makes the whole design more stiff, to overcome this they suggest to decrease the moment of Inertia I of the beam which i don't like, i expect more from an expensive software which i will count on for my designs. I expect it to be more intuitive.

[B]Modelling of monolithic column + retaining wall design

Next I also tried to design a column that is embedded in a retaining wall, which basically is the same case as the beam + slab design above but vertically, again its not possible to simply define this with robot.

I am looking for a software that is able to easily model a beam + slab or column + wall. Does anyone know of any powerful software that can do this?

Thank you[/B][/B]
