CSI produces five primary software packages: SAP2000, CSiBridge, ETABS, SAFE, and PERFORM-3D.
Each of these programs offers unique capabilities and tools that are tailored to different types of structures and problems, allowing users to find just the right solution for their work. SAP2000 is intended for use on civil structures such as dams, communication towers, stadiums, industrial plants and buildings. CSiBridge offers powerful parametric design of concrete and steel bridges. ETABS has been developed specifically for multi-story commercial and residential building structures, such as office towers, apartments and hospitals. The SAFE System provides an efficient and powerful program for the analysis and design of concrete slabs and foundations, with or without post-tensioning. PERFORM-3D is a highly focused nonlinear tool offering powerful performance based design capabilities.
With its uniquely qualified staff of professional structural engineers, researchers, academicians, and its worldwide involvement in the structural engineering community, CSI has been at the forefront of structural software development for nearly four decades. With CSI products you can be confident that you have the finest structural engineering software available, backed by a company with an unmatched record of innovation, and an unrivaled commitment to meet the ever-evolving needs of the profession.
The design guide is written with practicing structural engineers in mind. It emphasises professional applications, placing great emphasis on ready-to-use materials. It contains formulas and tables that give immediate solutions to common questions and problems arising from practical work related to composite columns. The design guide also provides good detailing practices for typical joints between steelconcrete composite columns and other structural components. Guideline is provided to select matching concrete and steel grades for the design of high strength composite columns. Special considerations for fire resistance design, fabrication of high tensile steel sections, and preparation of high strength concrete are emphasized. This design guide will endow structural engineers with the confidence to use high strength materials in a safe and economic manner to design and construct high rise buildings.
This course provides students with a basic knowledge of structural analysis and design for buildings, bridges and other structures. The course emphasizes the historical development of structural form and the evolution of structural design knowledge, from Gothic cathedrals to long span suspension bridges. Students will investigate the behavior of structural systems and elements through design exercises, case studies, and load testing of models. Students will design structures using timber, masonry, steel, and concrete and will gain an appreciation of the importance of structural design today, with an emphasis on environmental impact of large scale construction.
