LUSAS finite element analysis software
is available in LT, Standard or Plus versions dependent upon the
software product. Each product is designed for use by engineers in
- LT versions are suitable for linear
static analysis of structural frames and grillages.
- Standard versions of software are suitable for everyday linear static
and linear dynamic analysis.
- Plus versions allow for more advanced
analyses to be undertaken and include an extended advanced
high-performance element library.
capabilities of the standard and plus
versions of all LUSAS software products can be extended further by using
Nonlinear, Dynamic, Thermal/Field, Fast Solvers and other product options.
For Bridge Engineering
LUSAS Bridge LT
/ LUSAS Bridge
LUSAS Bridge software is used for all types of bridge design, analysis and assessment from simple grillages
through to complex cable stayed and suspension structures. It
has an unrivalled range
of analysis facilities for linear static, fundamental frequency, seismic, dynamic,
soil-structure interaction, large deflection,
staged construction, creep, prestress, post tensioning and fatigue
For Structural Engineering
LUSAS Civil & Structural LT / LUSAS Civil & Structural / LUSAS Civil & Structural plus
LUSAS Civil & Structural
used on all types of structures from buildings, grandstands and towers through to dams,
docks and tunnels.It has comprehensive facilities for all types of civil and
structural analysis including linear, nonlinear, staged construction,
soil-structure interaction, creep, prestress, post tensioning, seismic, blast, buckling, impact,
fire and fatigue analysis.
For Composites Engineering
(Only available as a plus version)
LUSAS Composite has advanced shell and solid composite elements for all types of composite
engineering. It allows easy definition and visualisation of layups, and accurate delamination
and failure modelling using a variety of industry standard failure criteria.
(High Precision Moulding)
LUSAS HPM software allows design engineers to extract master model
and tooling surfaces "right first time" ensuring that
correctly sized post-cure components are obtained without iterative
guesswork. Its use can shorten product development cycles and
significantly speed-up time-to-market.
For Mechanical Engineering
LUSAS Analyst / LUSAS Analyst plus
LUSAS Analyst is used in
the automotive, aerospace, defence, manufacturing and general mechanical industries.
It is used for general engineering
analysis and has highly regarded nonlinear and contact capabilities for
solving all types of
static, nonlinear, dynamic and thermal engineering problem, including thermal/mechanical coupling.
For Academic / Research Use
LUSAS Academic is for use only by educational
establishments for teaching purposes and research. By using the software protection device
and licence key supplied, the full licenced version allows access to any LUSAS commercial
product, access to most LUSAS analysis product options,
with no restriction on model size.
