Download Free Trial


STRAP is one of the most comprehensive and versatile structural analysis, design and detailing software system available in the market, Today. STRAP is extremely used by large construction companies, government agencies, international agencies, engineering firms, Educational and Research organisations worldwide. STRAP software’s unique design capabilities make it an outstanding Structural design program in the market. 

STRAP  comes with design modules for designing and detailing of of reinforced concrete structures ( frames , slabs, shear walls and foundations), post-tensioned concrete ( beams and slabs), structural steel (hot-rolled and cold-formed) and composite members (beams and columns). In addition to that STRAP can be used for Automatic bridge analysis & design of water retaining structures. STRAP has implemented many design codes like American, European, Canadian, Indian, Australian, South African, Chinese and others.

BEAMD: from design to scheduling in minutes


BEAMD is the complete and totally integrated solution for RC beam design, detailing, drafting and scheduling. Transform a tedious and error-prone task into a fast, efficient and enjoyable interactive design experience. Use it on its own, use it with STRAP, use it with a CAD system. The choice is yours. Whichever way you choose, you will achieve economic and practical designs – neatly drawn and accurately scheduled – in minutes. 

BEAMD’s versatility extends worldwide. Its unique range of detailing and scheduling options means you can work according to the local standards in just about any major country. For the USA, produce the beam schedule in the American format.  For Europe and other areas, produce full reinforcement details including sections and the bar schedule. Choose between one beam per A4/letter sheet or combine the beams on a full size drawing – all without the use of a CAD system.

BEAMD is the ideal partner to STRAP. A model analyzed and designed by STRAP may be interactively detailed using BEAMD. This close integration also permits the design of the beams according to earthquake code requirements.  BEAMD is available for BS8110, EC2, ACI, IS456, CSA23.3 and other codes.

RFEM – Powerful, Easy to use and Intuitive Software

RFEM is a powerful 3D FEA program helping structural engineers meet requirements in modern civil engineering. Efficient data input and intuitive handling facilitate modelling of simple and large structures. Parametric modelling is one of the unique features of the program. 

The structural analysis program RFEM is the basis of a modular software system. The main program RFEM is used to define structures, materials, and loads for planar and spatial structural systems consisting of plates, walls, shells and members. The program also allows you to create combined structures as well as model solid and contact elements. RFEM generates excellent results report. 

RFEM provides deformations, internal forces, stresses, support forces, and soil contact stresses. The corresponding add-on modules facilitate data input by automatic generation of structures and connections or can be used to perform further analyses and designs according to many international  standards.

RFEM can be used for Linear & Non Linear ( Geometric & Material) FEA, buckling and fatigue analysis. RFEM has extensive features for the design of Concrete, Steel, Aluminium, Glass and Tensile structures. Specialist modules are available for modelling and design tower structures, piping systems and etc. Special modules are available for crane girder design, composite beams, sections property calculations.
