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 Presentation

Latest LUSAS webinar

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.

Design, post-tensioning and improved ease-of-use in LUSAS Version 17
  • An overview of the design, post-tensioning and selected ease of use features in version 17 with presentations covering: steel bridge design checks to EN1993-2: 2006; defining and assigning of tendon loading attributes to selected features in a box girder bridge modelled using shell elements; and improved attribute assignment viewing and editing facilities.

See LUSAS video presentation sessions for software presentations. See LUSAS Webinar recordings for full-length recordings of other webinars.

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.
