By CIOReview | Thursday, September 24, 2015

FREMONT, CA: Intergraph, a provider of IT solutions announces the release of GT STRUDL 2015, an advanced version of its structural analysis and design software. The enhancement now includes a new 3D CAD modeler plus 64-bit high-performance, multi-processor solvers.

GT STRUDL is a fully integrated, database-driven system for frame and finite element, linear and nonlinear static and dynamic analysis as well as comprehensive steel and reinforced concrete design.  It includes the tools necessary to perform a broad range of structural analysis and design projects accurately in a fraction of the time. The new CAD modeler feature enables users to easily create simple to highly complex structural models for analysis and design purposes. It displays analysis and design results using the same CAD interface.

It includes advanced 64-bit High-Performance Static and Eigen Solvers, advanced High-Performance Nonlinear Time History Analysis Solver, rigorous Non Linear Static Analysis, Pushover Analysis, large-Scale Eigen Solvers and Response Spectrum Seismic Analysis including the Gupta and Lindley-Yow mode combination methodologies.

It also features Maximum Response Harmonic Analysis, Steady State Analysis, Linear and Nonlinear Time History Analysis, Buckling Load Analysis, Rigorous Cable Analysis and Base Isolators.

The structural engineering capabilities include Long-span Bridges, Process and Power Industry Plant Structure, General Infrastructure Projects, Marine Structures, Nuclear Power Plant Structures, Offshore structures and Telecommunication and Power Transmission Towers.

"GT STRUDL is one of the most widely used and adaptable structural analysis solutions in the world with a proven track record in a variety of applications. It has been a valuable addition to the Intergraph portfolio, and the new version offers our EPC and owner operator customers an enhanced solution to help them increase efficiency while reducing costs," says Patrick Holcomb, Executive VP of Global Business Development and Marketing.
