Modern architectural designs involve innovative shapes and new materials. The structural behavior of such structures needs to be predicted accurately in order to achieve and maintain structural safety, reliability and utility.
The 3DEXPERIENCE platform provides a seamless way to model and analyze buildings and bridges. Models can be created, meshed, and analyzed using connected tools available in the setup. For more complex cases, the available Abaqus simulation software capability can be used to perform sophisticated analyses, such as nonlinear elasto-plastic analysis including damage, coupled pore-fluid flow computations for foundations and tunnels, multiphysics studies including thermal and diffusional effects, and transient dynamic seismic analysis.
