Developer : Computers and Structures, Inc. (CSI)
Providing software solutions for structural and earthquake
1976 by company President Ashraf Habibullah, CSI is recognized
worldwide as an innovative leader in the development of software
tools for the analysis and design of civil structures. CSI
products are licensed to thousands of structural engineering
firms throughout the USA and in over 60 foreign countries.
development of CSI software spans three decades, starting with
the research of Dr. Edward L. Wilson at the University of
California at Berkeley. The revolutionary SAP program was first
released in 1970, and Dr. Wilson has subsequently been
recognized by national and international engineering societies
as one of the preeminent researchers in the field of computer
aided structural analysis.
Each of CSI's
programs is tailored to specific classes of structures, allowing
the engineering community to work at more productive and
efficient levels than is possible with "general purpose" type
programs. SAP2000 is intended for use on civil structures such
as bridges, dams, stadiums, industrial structures and buildings.
ETABS has been developed specifically for multi-story building
structures, such as office buildings, apartments and hospitals.
The SAFE System provides an efficient and powerful program for
the analysis and design of concrete slabs and foundations.
Not only is
CSI known for analytically sophisticated software, but for
unsurpassed product support as well. User support activities
include advice on structural systems, interpretation of
structural behavior, clarification on various aspects of
building codes, opinions on special modeling problems, and other
aspects associated with the subject of computerized structural
analysis and design.
