    • Assessments of static and dynamic damage to structures, and assessments of the static capacity of structure staking into account crack development

    We offer computer analysis of building structures and materials (concrete, reinforced concrete, steel, stone, glass, wood, composites). We use software ATENA and ANSYS, that are based on the deformation variant of finite element method.


    simulates the actual behavior of concrete and reinforced concrete structures, including cracks, crushing and reinforcement creep, allows to model the structure as solid elements including the exact location, shape, size and prestressing of the reinforcement in the concrete.
    It includes modules for calculation of creep and shrinkage of concrete, transport problems (heat and humidity) and dynamics.
    It allows calculate with the geometric, material and support nonlinearity.


    It is currently the most comprehensive simulation tool that enables to calculate
    – Structural analysis
    – Fluid dynamics (wind, hydrodynamics)
    – Explicit dynamics (impact, explosion)
    – Electromagnetism
