Civil

Common application areas of numerical simulation in Civil Engineering are:

  • Detailed analysis to predict local buckling, assess fatigue and welding defects
  • Loading environments such as seismic, impact, wind, snow, ice and thermal loading
  • Pre-stress analysis of tension structures, cables, and reinforcing members
  • Seismic analysis using CQC, NRL, SRSS and ABS modal combination methods
  • Linear and nonlinear transient, frequency, and random response analysis with base excitation
  • Full Analysis capabilities from model setup to detail results visualization
  • Air quality and ventilation
  • Fire safety analysis
  • Wave loading
  • Multi-zone airflow modeling
  • Wind tunnel testing
  • Wind loading on bluff bodies and moving bodies
  • Wind comfort for motorists, cyclists and pedestrians
  • Building aerodynamics
  • Occupant/pedestrian comfort
  • Design of weirs, dams, spillways, open channels
  • Scour/deposition modeling
  • Fire/smoke/gas dispersion
  • Structure analysis of concrete slabs, structural frames, building trusses, guyed masts, towers, and silos, as well as innovative thin shell and geodesic structures
  • Design and analysis of tension structures, glass atriums and skylights, and composite roofs and canopies
  • Materials handling
  • HVAC & other MEP applications
  • Offshore platforms, harbors or submerged pipelines in different sea states
  • Simulation of dam spillway and dam breaking
  • Applications including structures found in airports, theme parks, public and commercial buildings, observatories, and parking garages
  • Flooding of surface level or underground facilities
