Structural Analyses

We conduct structural analyses for all kinds of simple and complex problems and can generate calculation models using the entire software range from easy-to-use small software design packages to highly sophisticated finite element programs such as INFOCAD and ANSYS. The model generation is based on CAD models and BIM-data.

SDA-engineering GmbH is specialized in dynamic structural analyses in frequency and time domain. The scope of services ranges from the investigation of structural details, structural and plant components to the full-scale simulation of load-bearing structures subjected to dynamic loads as a result of earthquakes, induced vibrations or impact loads like explosions. One of the core competencies of SDA-engineering GmbH is the simulation of common buildings and special structures of all kinds under seismic loading.

By using the results of the structural analyses, we provide you economical solutions for structures under planning and with upgrading strategies for existing structures conform to European or International Standards. If necessary, load-bearing reserves from non-linear material behaviour are taken into account and innovative design procedures are applied in order to verify the structural safety and serviceability. Furthermore, useful lifespan estimates and damage analyses allow an economic efficiency check of planned construction projects and existing buildings.
