In our consultancy we are using the state-of-the-art in computer software to achieve optimized engineering solutions. Our philosophy is that engineering software tools can significantly improve the solution, as long as the user knows how to use them correctly. All our engineers have extensive knowledge of the finite element method theory. We have full licenses of SAP2000, ETABS, STAAD-Pro software.
We have also developed our in-house computer program, RC-PADD (Reinforced Concrete Post-Analysis Design and Detailing). RC-PADD imports the structural analysis results from other reliable software, such as SAP2000 and ETABS, and post-process them to design the structure to Eurocode 2, and 8 and to ACI-318. It is possibly the only computer program that calculates the rotational ductility of reinforced concrete members, which is one of the most important parameters in earthquake-resistant design.
We also have the capability of developing advanced finite element models for complex structural problems.
