SDA-engineering GmbH was founded in August 2006 by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Christoph Butenweg and Dr.-Ing. Philippe Renault after many years of collaboration at the Chair of Structural Statics and Dynamics of RWTH Aachen University. The gained experience of the partners during that time still forms the basis of the professional competence and the continuous development of the SDA-engineering GmbH. The main application areas are the execution of static and dynamic analyses in structural engineering, earthquake engineering and the development of innovative software solutions for complex structural problems.
Since 2009 SDA-engineering GmbH is quite active in the working area “Soil dynamics and Engineering Seismology”. The collaboration with the "Center for Wind and Earthquake Engineering" guarantees, that SDA-engineering GmbH is always able to apply the most recent design concepts in these application areas. Moreover, the employment of Prof. Dr.-Ing. Christoph Butenweg at FH Aachen - University of Applied Sciences enhance the expertise in plant engineering and plant component design.
The team consists of doctoral civil engineers as well as project engineers, draftsmen and student research assistants. The team is complemented by a mathematician who supports the areas of software development and measurement techniques.
