A Computer Program for Seismic Inelastic Structural Analysis
Developed at the State University
of New York at Buffalo, IDARC was first introduced in 1987 for the purpose of analyzing
earthquake damage in multistory, reinforced concrete buildings. Since then, numerous
enhancements have been added, including the ability to analyze a wide variety of
structures, structural materials, and, most recently, structural damping devices. New
features are continuously being added to IDARC, while three dimensional and bridge
specific versions are currently being developed.
The program is distributed free, with corrections and minor
updates, as part of a Membership in a Users Group. For information on membership
check the appropriate button above. Non-members can also get a version of the
program executable free without any support.
The purpose of this web site is to keep you up to date on the latest reports, enhancements, Memberships,
as well as to help you resolve any problems you may encounter while using IDARC.
If you are not familiar with the program's capabilities, feel
