Software Specification

Software Product Levels

LUSAS Civil & Structural software is available in three software product levels with additional software options available for purchase to meet your particular needs. 

  • Civil & Structural LT is suitable for linear static analysis of structural frames and grillages. 
  • Civil & Structural is suitable for everyday linear static and linear dynamic analysis using beam, shell, solid and joint elements.
  • Civil & Structural Plus includes an extended advanced high-performance element library and allows for more advanced analyses to be undertaken.

All software is fully integrated and easily upgradeable. 

Software Options

Software options are available for some of these products and are listed at the bottom of the detailed specification listings for each product.

Compatibility of LUSAS Civil & Structural software products

Model and results files created by a lower product (such as Civil & Structural LT) can be viewed and edited by a higher product version (such as Civil & Structural). 

Model and results files created in a higher product can be opened for viewing or editing in a lower product version provided the model contains only those elements and analysis options supported by the lower product.

Compatibility of LUSAS Civil & Structural software release versions

LUSAS model and results data can only be read in a particular software release version when it was written by a version with the same or lower 'major' version (such as V14 or V15), and also the same or lower 'point' release version (such as V14.5 or V14.6).
