3D FEM ultimate / ultimate 50

The high-end packages for structural engineering

The 3D FEM ultimate and ultimate 50 packages offer all functions for modern structural analysis in civil engineering and bridge construction. The graphical input options with the AutoCAD® attachment SOFiPLUS are extended by the parametric axis-related technology CABD, master cross-sections allow any cross-sectional profile. Prestressing for beam and shell elements with suitable stress and serviceability analyses allow the processing of prestressed concrete and composite construction projects.

The functions at a glance

  • 3D FE bar, pile, shell, slab and disc elements
  • Any bar cross-sections and master cross-sections with graphical input
  • Beams and joists as FE bars
