Civil and Structural Engineering
Since established in 1997 CADFEM has provided structural engineering analysis services to a large, national and international, client base as well as collaborating with research institutions. These services include static, dynamic, linear/nonlinear and seismic analyses for steel, concrete and masonry structures checked to appropriate codes of practice, and the development of simulation solutions for new technologies.
During this time we’ve been commissioned to analyse building frames, steel and concrete silos, flat slabs, modular housing units, steel gantry and access platforms, turbine generator blocks, post-tensioned reinforced concrete beams and bridges, steel bridges, structural steel connections, masonry arch bridges, bridge bearing details and reinforced concrete beams strengthened using fibre reinforced composite materials.
Our 3D geometry, material modelling and analysis capabilities enable us to offer more complete analysis solutions than traditional frame analysis software – a good example is our analysis of the structural frames for the new Croke Park Stadium for Horgan Lynch & Partners. We also provide customised solutions and have recently completed an automated container crane builder, analyser and code checker for Liebherr Container Cranes Ltd.
We have particularly expertise in bridge engineering, notably in the areas of dynamic and assessment analysis. This includes steel, concrete and masonry bridges.
