LUSAS Civil & Structural - Key Features

By: Lusas  06-Dec-2011

Key Features

LUSAS Civil & Structural is used throughout the world by engineers in the Construction Industry for all types of civil and structural design. It is available in three levels - Civil & Structural LT, Civil & Structural , and Civil & Structural Plus. 

It has a Windows User Interface, modelling wizards, comprehensive loading facilities, and Basic and Smart Combination facilities to provide for easy and rapid model generation, load application, and generation of results. 

  • It reduces the amount of time you spend on analysis
  • It gives you a better understanding of the behaviour of your structure
  • It helps you to improve and optimise your design

It is the choice for organisations wanting to standardise on a single product for all their analysis requirements

  • The Windows User Interface, modelling wizards, comprehensive material libraries and Smart Combinations provide for easy and rapid model generation, load application, and generation of results.
  • LUSAS tackles all types of structures, from simple slabs, building frames, masts, towers and tanks through to heavy civil engineering structures such as cooling towers, dams, docks and tunnels. It provides a complete solution.
  • The underlying finite element technology enables the true behaviour of structures to be accurately modelled for either global analyses of complete structures or local analyses of parts of structures such as a complex connection detail.
  • The technology actively supports and encourages innovation helping engineers rise to the ever increasing challenge of aesthetic design and unusual structures.

LUSAS Composite - Software Tour

From simple failure prediction using a number of failure criteria including Tsai-Hill, Hoffman and Tsai-Wu through to advanced delamination failure modelling, LUSAS Composite will help shorten your design and checking times giving reliable results every time. To model failure correctly, and to assess the residual strength, nonlinear analysis with LUSAS Composite is necessary in which the individual laminate behaviour is modelled.

LUSAS Bridge Software Tour - Software overview

Because all levels of the products use the same user interface and terminology, training costs can be minimised and users can be introduced to LUSAS at the most appropriate level for the work they need to do. There is also full data compatibility across the product range allowing easy migration of a model to a more advanced analysis when required without any data conversion or remodelling.

LUSAS Bridge Software Product Versions

Model and results files created in a higher product version can be opened for viewing or editing in a lower product version provided the model contains only those elements and analysis options supported by the lower version. LUSAS Bridge software is available in 3 software product versions with additional software options available for purchase to meet your particular needs.

Curved Girder Analysis

With curved girder structures significant torsional stresses must be accounted for at the design stage and careful consideration is also required to ensure their safe erection. In the USA the use of curved girder bridges has steadily increased year by year and is now estimated to represent 25 percent or more of the entire steel bridge market.

LUSAS HPM (High Precision Moulding) software

LUSAS HPM software can accurately predict the distortion of laminated composite parts during manufacture and provide reverse engineered surfaces to create "right first time" tooling. With the use of accurately calculated master and tooling surfaces it is anticipated that the cost and time required to assemble composite components could be greatly reduced.
