Structural Engineering

The SAP name has been synonymous with state-of-the-art analytical methods since its introduction over 30 years ago. SAP2000 follows in the same tradition featuring a very sophisticated, intuitive and versatile user interface powered by an unmatched analysis engine and design tools for engineers working on transportation, industrial, public works, sports, and other facilities.

ETABS offers unmatched 3D object based modeling and visualization tools, blazingly fast linear and nonlinear analytical power, sophisticated and comprehensive design capabilities for a wide-range of materials, and insightful graphic displays, reports, and schematic drawings that allow users to quickly and easily decipher and understand analysis and design results.

SAFE is the ultimate tool for designing concrete floor and foundation systems. From framing layout to detail drawing production, SAFE integrates every aspect of the engineering design process in one easy and intuitive environment. SAFE provides unmatched productivity to the engineer with its truly unique combination of power, comprehensive capabilities, and ease-of-use.

Modeling, analysis and design of bridge structures have been integrated into CSiBridge to create the ultimate in computerized engineering tools. The ease with which all of these tasks can be accomplished makes CSiBridge the most versatile and productive software program available on the market today.

Displacement-based (or deformation-based) design considers inelastic behavior explicitly, using nonlinear inelastic analysis. Displacement-based design recognizes that in a strong earthquake, inelastic deformation (or ductility) can be more important than strength. PERFORM-3D allows you to use displacement-based design.

CSiCol™ is a comprehensive software package for analyzing and designing concrete, reinforced concrete, and reinforced-concrete composite columns. CSiCol’s Quick Design Wizard provides access to all the forms needed during the column design process, making design simple, organized and efficient.

CSiXRevit is a plugin for Autodesk Revit® that enables bi-directional data transfer to CSI Software products: SAP2000®, ETABS® and SAFE®. Users have full control over what model data gets transferred and how that data gets mapped to equivalent objects in either software. CSiXRevit requires its own license to run.

CSiPlant is an integrated engineering software product for analysis and design of piping systems and frame structures, including piping code compliance checks with stress-intensification and flexibility factors that are automatically calculated and applied.

CSiDetail creates a detailed model of the structure, based on its analysis model and the design process carried out in ETABS. It automatically generates views and drawings that can be used as the basis for preparing final engineering drawings, as well as BIM files for use in BIM tools. Detailing can be carried out both for concrete and steel buildings.

IDEA StatiCa Connection can design all types of welded or bolted connections, base plates, footing and anchoring. It provides precise checks, results of strength, stiffness and buckling analysis of a steel joint. Bolts, welds and concrete blocks are checked according to EN/AISC/CISC/AU/SP 16.
