Tools for Engineers, built by Engineers

Engineer Software Solutions, built by Engineers

Unlike other structural engineering firms, we develop virtually all of our own analysis and design tools. We also license our professional grade software to consulting engineers, government agencies, precast producers, and universities worldwide. Our development staff consists of both experienced design engineers and professional programmers to ensure that our products are technically superior. With deep roots in consulting engineering practice and industry committee involvement, our technical support is second to none.

  • Full Support

    Support is included for both AASHTO LRFD and Standard Specs. Instantly, you can switch between them to see just where the differences between them really are.

  • True 3D Visualziation

    Powerful OpenGL graphics provide a perspective that numbers alone cannot. View your designs in 3D to ensure they are correct and constructible.

  • Save Time and Money

    Designed and developed by Engineers that understand the need for easy-to-use, reliable, high-performance software so you can stay focused on design and production.

  • Easy to Use

    Built from an Engineer's perspective resulting in a straightforward, intuitive interface that helps you get up to speed quickly and efficiently.

PSBeam

Prestressed Concrete Bridge Girder Design in Accordance with AASHTO Specs

PSBeam is a high-performance Windows-based program for the design and analysis of simple-span or continuous precast, pretensioned or post-tensioned precast concrete bridge girders. PSBeam is professional grade software. It’s the tool of choice for professional engineers who demand results. They know they can count on PSBeam’s rock-solid reliability to deliver the results they need. Support is included for both AASHTO LRFD and Standard Specs. Instantly, you can switch between them to see just where the differences between them really are. There's no better way to learn LRFD! PSBeam sets a new standard for plant-cast prestressed bridge girder design. Now you can extend spans by segmenting girders and including post-tensioning--all within PSBeam.

Key Features

  • Continuous, multi-span structures
  • Time-dependent restraint moments
  • Design & permit vehicles
  • Section, truck & rebar libraries
  • Section properties generation

ETPier

Bridge Pier, Bent, and Abutment Design in Accordance with AASHTO LRFD or Standard

ETPier is a high-performance Windows-based program for the design and analysis of highway bridge piers, bents, and abutments. ETPier seamlessly combines the functionality of a state-of-the-art structural analysis engine with concrete column, beam, and footing design capabilities. Integration of the critical design tasks into one system means you get superior productivity and flexibility and improved quality control. ETPier is specifically designed for bridge substructures. Powerful parametric modeling wizards are included to facilitate rapid structure layout and generation. Specify which load combinations to investigate and ETPier will automatically process them and quickly identify the governing case for each component of the structure. Under the hood is a structural analysis engine that redefines performance. True 3D analysis capabilities are built in. Non-linear second order effects are handled at the matrix level to dramatically cut processing time. The result: complete analyses can be done real-time in seconds rather than minutes or hours. Fast and accurately.

Key Features

  • Piers, bents, and abutments
  • AASHTO LRFD or Std Specs
  • Dual units: US & SI
  • Hammerhead, multi-column, walls
  • Spread or pile footings
  • AASHTO load types & groups
  • Automatic load generation
  • True 3D Modelling
  • Interactive design

ETCulvert

Concrete Box Culvert Design & Analysis in Accordance with AASHTO LRFD or Standard

ETCulvert is a high-performance Windows-based program that seamlessly combines the functionality of a state-of-the-art structural analysis engine with both fully-automatic design and analysis capabilities. Integration of the critical design tasks into one system means you get superior productivity and flexibility and improved quality control.

Precast or CIP 4-sided, 3-sided, and V-bottom culverts can be handled. In auto design mode, ETCulvert quickly analyzes and designs wall thicknesses and reinforcement sizes and spacing. Reinforcement can be rebar or WWF (mesh). For rebar, a comprehensive reinforcement schedule is produced, complete with all bar dimensions and bends. Both AASHTO Standard and LRFD/LRFR Specifications are supported.

The highly-graphical user interface provides multiple views to render the design and present the results. Complete details of the design are provided, along with detailed calculations. Powerful graphics show all rebar rendered in true 3D. Sophisticated live load capabilities include a user-customizable truck library.

Key Features

  • Precast or CIP
  • 1 to 4 cells
  • 4-sided or 3-sided culverts
  • AASHTO LRFD or Std Specs
  • Rebar or WWF (mesh)
  • Optional shear steel
  • User-definable truck library
  • Auto variable fill depths
  • Load ratings (LRFR or LFD)
