Engineer’s Studio® Ver. 9 Now Includes Support for International Construction Industry Regulations and Earthquake Impact Analysis
FORUM8 the leading developer of advanced 3D virtual reality and structural engineering analysis software has announced the release of Engineer’s Studio® Ver.9, which now includes extended support for the latest industry standards and regulations governing major construction projects both inside and outside of Japan.
A modular software system, Engineer’s Studio® is widely used by engineers working in some of the world’s earthquake-prone regions to define structures, materials, and loads for planar and spatial structural systems consisting of plates, walls, shells. With an extensive range of plugin modules available, Engineer’s Studio® enables structural engineers to create designs for combined structures as well as model solid and contact elements for large-scale buildings, bridges and tunnels capable of withstanding potential seismic activity.
In addition to the latest software updates, FORUM8 also offers international versions of its Engineer’s Studio® Analysis Support and Geo Technical Analysis Support services, available in English, Chinese, and Korean, for worldwide users as well as Japanese structural engineers that are working on projects outside of Japan. FORUM8 provides a high-quality service by using the advanced analysis method such as the Dynamic Nonlinear analysis and Geo Technical Dynamic FEM Analysis on various types of civil works and architectural structures. The products targeted for this service are Engineer’s Studio®, and Geo Technical Analysis series GeoFEAS3D, UWLC, LEM3D and VG-Flow have been localized in English and other languages for the worldwide market.
FORUM8 Western Regional Manager, Dr. Brendan Hafferty commented “Although Engineer’s Studio has been used widely by some of the world’s leading engineers working on major iconic construction projects for over 15 years, these have been mostly confined to the Far East region. This latest version means that engineers working in the Middle East, Europe and North America will now be able to take full advantage of its advanced analytical capability especially when working on projects in challenging terrains such as areas with a history of earthquakes and flooding.”Back to all blog posts
