FEA and CAD software for civil and structural engineering modeling, analysis, design, and detailing. SOFiSTiK is one of the most complete FE packages and covers almost all structural engineering disciplines: building, bridges, foundation, tunneling, membranes, lightweight, dynamics. Design code checks can be performed for 18 international codes.
FEA suite (SOFiSTiK) includes the following programs: Sofistik Structural Desktop - SSD (main user interface that helps the user control various modules), CADINP (text editor and script language to define parametric input), SOFIPLUS (standard pre-processor based on AutoCAD), ASE (3D finite element analysis), STAR (3D frame analysis), SlabDesigner PRO (analysis of slabs, walls, frames and grillages), TALPA (linear and nonlinear plain strain/stress analysis), HASE (soil-structure interaction), PFAHL (analysis of pile foundations), HYDRA (analysis of potential problems), PHYSICA (multiphysical code for computation fluid dynamics that can be used for dynamic wind analysis of bridges and buildings).
CAD Suite (SOFiCAD) includes the following programs: SOFiCAD DETAILING (tools for construction and formwork planning), SOFICAD REINFORCEMENT (used to generate reinforcement drawings within AutoCAD), SOFiCAD BAMTEC (detailing of reinforcement mats), SOFiCAD ALIGNMENT (horizontal and vertical alignment of highway structures and bridges), SOFiCAD STEELWORK (steel detailing), SOFiCAD DATA-EXCHANGE.
