Computers and Structures, Inc.
Founded in 1975 by company President Ashraf Habibullah, CSI is recognized worldwide as an innovative leader in the development of software tools for the analysis and design of civil structures. CSI products are licensed to thousands of structural engineering firms throughout the USA and in more than 100 other countries.
The development of CSI software spans three decades, starting with the research of Dr. Edward L. Wilson at the University of California at Berkeley. The revolutionary SAP program was first released in 1970, and Dr. Wilson has subsequently been recognized by national and international engineering societies as one of the preeminent researchers in the field of computer aided structural analysis.
CSiCOL is a comprehensive software package used for the analysis and design of columns. The design of columns of any concrete, reinforced concrete, or composite cross-section can be carried out by the program. CSiCOL provides a 'Quick Design Wizard' tool that guides the users step-by-step, through the whole process of column design. This makes the design process simple, organized and efficient. The design can be carried out in accordance with ACI-318-02, ACI-318-99, BS8110 or CSA A-23.3-94 codes.
ETABS offers sophisticated 3-D analysis and design for multistory building structures, such as office buildings, apartments and hospitals. The input, output and numerical solution techniques of ETABS are specifically designed to take advantage of the unique physical and numerical characteristics associated with building type structures. A complete suite of Windows graphical tools and utilities are included with the base package.
SAFE is a special purpose program that automates the analysis and design of simple to complex concrete flat plates and foundation systems using powerful object based modeling. The program can analyze and design slabs or mats of arbitrary shapes and varying thickness, drop panels, openings, edge beams and discontinuities. Foundations can be combinations of Mats, Strip Footings or Isolated Spread Footings.
SAP2000 represents the state-of-the-art in three dimensional finite element technology for structural engineering. This SAP is completely integrated within Windows 95/NT, and offers an easy-to-use graphical interface along with the latest developments in analytical techniques.
