Software Specification

LUSAS Civil & Structural software products

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 linear static and linear modal dynamic analysis using beams, plates, shells, solids and more.
  • Civil & Structural Plus allows for more advanced analyses to be undertaken with additional advanced high-performance elements.

All software is fully integrated and easily upgradeable.

Notes:

  • The detailed specification for each product lists the main features and capabilities of each product.  
  • A table of products and options is also provided to assist with your LUSAS software product and software option selection for a particular modelling or analysis task.

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).
