Engineering analysis and design software
Any structure. One solution.

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

  • 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.

  • LUSAS consultancy services solve a wide range of analysis problems for clients in all 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.

Latest LUSAS Video Presentations

LUSAS Version 17 Update Presentation

  • Version 17.0 sees steel frame design checking and vehicle load optimisation capabilities extended, prestress enhancements, additional creep and shrinkage models, and new facilities for soil-structure interaction modelling. New viewing and editing features simplify the management and changing of attribute assignments, improving general ease-of-use.

Steel bridge design to AASHTO LRFD 7th Edition 

  • Design checks are carried out to AASHTO LRFD 7th edition showing utilisation factors, and a member report is created for a selected member to demonstrate the transparent nature of the LUSAS steel design checking facility.
