The Confluences Museum - Lyon, France
SCIA Engineer

The Confluences Museum - Lyon, France

The size and complexity of the museum made it a very special challenge to design the different sub-structures: the base, the cloud and the crystal. Load panels were used to apply the wind tunnel loads and the “absences” tool proved quite useful. The full model contains 27,000 nodes, 32,000 beams and 7,000 load panels.

What our customers say...

SCIA - Cutting-edge software

I'm really impressed with SCIA Engineer. It is super user-friendly and a big time saver. The technical support was always able to help me fast and adequately. This is software you should invest in.

Vanneth Ny

building system engineer at Fuxin Steel Buildings Co., LTD

I would recommend SCIA Engineer 21 to long-term SCIA users who want to spend a bit more time on design and less in setting things up and for new users and the generations that have been brought up on highly visual user interfaces or programming and prefer simple searches to them I think this is going to feel really familiar. 

Matthew Burton

principal engineer at AECOM

Now, architects and engineers can work in the same 3D model together — our beams are their beams; their walls are our walls. Working together in real-time makes everything so much clearer, faster, and more efficient.

Jake Timmons - Riverstone Structural Concepts

Structural Designer

We keep our SCIA software regularly updated through the maintenance contract. It enables us to design complex concrete and steel structures according to the Eurocodes and other codes. The ability to transfer the model to Tekla Structures and back brings a high efficiency to our structural engineers.

Hana Gattermayerova, Atelier P.H.A., spol. s r.o.

Chief Structural Enginer

SCIA Engineer is a powerful tool for our applications, combining sophisticated methods of structural analysis with a very user friendly graphical interface – and with a technical support team we can count on.
