The Port House in Antwerp represents a genius architectural design that integrates an original, unconventional and eye-catching structure with the old fire station, a protected replica of a former Hanseatic house.
The engineering office ‘Baues + Wicht beratende Ingenieure’ realised this challenging project thanks to many functions in SCIA Engineer. The ‘BIM Toolbox’ was used to import the structural model of the architect and generate a full 3D FEM analysis model. Then, the internal forces and displacements of the whole construction were analysed in one step.
The capability of parametric input in SCIA Engineer helped engineers in the Van Rossum Raadgevende Ingenieurs office quickly compare different structural options for the nhow Amsterdam RAI hotel, the Netherlands, find the optimal variant and perform its complete analysis and design.
With football being one of the most popular games around the globe, structural engineers must frequently face various challenges related to the construction or modernization of football stadiums. Learn how SCIA Engineer helped tackle the expansion of the National Football Stadium in Belfast, Northern Ireland.
The engineering office Atelier P.H.A. analysed the complete 3D model of the snowman structure in SCIA Engineer. The software enabled the engineering office to calculate the external loads, the internal forces, deformation of the steel structure,...
