rudimentary stress analysis model needed

Recommended Posts

I'm working on an EU bridge competition for which a structural stress analysis model is required. 

1.  Would anyone happen to know who does this sort of thing? 

2. Does vectorworks export to any common structural software (other than the autodesk empire standards)?

1) Any structural engineer should be able to produce a structural stress analysis model.


2) Scia Engineer is a partner product of Vectorworks (both part of the Nemetschek family).

This page has a video about the workflow between Vectorworks & Scia Engineer, I believe IFC is the file format used.

I'm basically doing this as speculative and the bridge engineer who's offered to help (pro bono) is not able to do a stress analysis model so I'm sort of stuck.

Good to know about Scia. did watch the promo video.  I forgot it was part of the mother ship.

Thanks for the heads up.
