Complex geometries and static loading conditions require 3D numerical modeling that aims at identifying critical nodes and define the static reserves of the concrete or steel structures allowing for design optimization.
STRAND7 (commercialized as STRAUS in Italy).
An extremely versatile linear, non-linear FE 1D, 2D, 3D software for analyzing the response of a structure to various static, dynamic and thermal conditions. Static and transient conditions can be investigated .
- Segmental lining dimensioning (analysis of stresses in the segments due to eccentric and localized loads from the shield jacks);
- Analysis of a tunnel lining system subjected to the heat generated by a fire;
- Analysis of foundation systems subjected to complex loading conditions ;
- Steel structures;
- Shafts for slope stabilization.
