CivilFEM is a general-purpose software ideal for the analysis and design of any civil engineering structure. CivilFEM enables to solve non-linear analysis and Code verification and design, making it a unique solution for all the civil/structural engineering projects.

The intuitive interface allows to model complex structures quick and easily with a complete range of analysis tools, solving static, dynamic and multi-physics (seepage/thermal-structural coupled analysis) loading scenarios with accurate results.

The aim of this webinar is to have an overview of the most advanced capabilities with three models:

  1. A steel structure optimization for a high rise building, comparing diagrid with classic structure configuration, with linear and non-linear analyses, calculation of load-carrying capacity, non-linear buckling analysis and safety according to Structural Steel Design Codes. Also a thermal-structural analysis to design fire protection and analyze de risk of progressive collapse.


  1. A reinforcement concrete model with Code Design and nonlinear analysis with the unique CivilFEM features for modeling nonlinear concrete behavior: creep and shrinkage, concrete, nonlinear steel reinforcement, post-tensile cracking behavior, post-compression crushing behavior and strain softening. Also pre- and post-tensioning concrete for beam, shell and solid elements, combined with activation and deactivation and time dependent material properties for detailed staged analysis.


  1. A 3D soil-structure interaction analysis with nonlinear geotechnical materials considering hardening and softening properties under cycling loads, pressure dependent behavior of porous soils, construction and excavation and safety factors for stability problems.
