Engineering analysis and design software
Any structure. One solution.

LUSAS version 16 now released : visit the version 16 microsite at

We develop, market and support a range of engineering analysis software products all based upon the LUSAS finite element analysis system.

  • Our LUSAS software products can solve all types of linear and nonlinear stress, dynamics, composite and thermal engineering analysis problem, across a range of engineering industries.

For bridge analysis, design and assessment. For civil, structural, nuclear, seismic, geotechnical and offshore engineering design and analysis. For analysis and design of composite products or components. For academic teaching,  training and research use. For automotive, aerospace, defence, manufacturing and general engineering analysis and design. For obtaining master model and tooling surfaces for composites.

Quick Links

  • LUSAS software options extend the analysis capabilities of particular products for uses such as vehicle load optimisation, steel and composite deck design, and rail track-structure interaction analysis.

  • LUSAS case studies show illustrative uses of LUSAS software on projects and applications around the world. 

  • LUSAS video and webinar presentation sessions show aspects of particular software products and features in action.

  • LUSAS consultancy services undertake work ranging from the stress analysis of individual components to structural design substantiation of major engineering projects.

Latest LUSAS Video Presentations

LUSAS Version 16 Update Presentation

  • Version 16 marks a new era for LUSAS with the addition of comprehensive design checking tools for steelwork, and a host of other new features and enhancements that improve usability and make collaboration easier. 

  • Visit the LUSAS version 16 microsite to find out more about this release.

Cut and cover tunnel modelling

  • Import of a DXF file to create a 2D slice model of a simple cut and cover tunnel model. Material properties, supports and loading are assigned, prior to showing how activation and deactivation of elements can be done to model the staged construction process of excavating the soil, installing ground anchors and constructing tunnel structure.

See LUSAS video presentation sessions for software presentations See Papers and Presentations for seminar and conference presentations.

Featured Bridge Case Study

Currie Road Bridge

  • Detailed modelling of a single span half-through steel girder railway underbridge with a 50 degree skew to reduce number of deck bearings used and assist with checks to specific design codes.

Featured Civil & Structural Case Study

Erection engineering analysis of a replacement roof for the London Olympic Stadium

  • Independent modelling and checking of the various stages involved in the deconstruction of the original cable net roof of the London Olympic Stadium and subsequent construction of a new long-span replacement for what is now called the London Stadium.
