GT STRUDL, a structural engineering software system developed at Georgia Tech, was acquired by Intergraph.
A structural engineering software system developed at Georgia Tech has been acquired by Intergraph®, a leading producer of engineering enterprise software. GT STRUDL®, a computer-aided structural engineering (CAE) software system that assists engineers in the process of structural analysis and design, was developed at Georgia Tech in the 1970s and has been maintained and updated ever since. almost 40 years.
As part of the acquisition, all 10 staff and management team members of Georgia Tech’s Computer-Aided Structural Engineering Center (CASE Center) joined Intergraph. Developed by the CASE Center within the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering, GT STRUDL integrates graphical modeling, linear and non-linear static and dynamic analysis of frames and finite elements, structural frame design, analysis graphics and display of design results and structural database management in a menu driven information processing system.
GT STRUDL is widely used in a variety of industries such as nuclear power and nuclear defense industries, conventional power generation, general plant structures, offshore structures, marine applications, general civil engineering and infrastructure structures. GT STRUDL is currently used by thousands of structural engineers at engineering companies, government agencies and universities in over 40 countries around the world.
In the nuclear industry of the United States, for example, the GT STRUDL is widely used by large companies for the design, maintenance and upgrading of safety-critical structures such as turbine buildings, boilers, equipment support structures, piping support systems and other related civil works. structures.
Intergraph, based in Huntsville, Alabama, will provide current GT STRUDL licensees with uninterrupted support, maintenance and software upgrades under their maintenance agreements.
“With the acquisition of GT STRUDL and its skilled and experienced R&D team, Intergraph benefits from a successful and well-established structural analysis and design program with a strong focus on the growing global markets for nuclear power, the general design of power plants and the offshore industry,” said Gerhard. Sallinger, president of Intergraph Process, Power & Marine.
