Design office: CAPITA Property & Infrastructure
Client: Gerry Judah

Project description:
A monocoque Shell (hollow triangular sculpture made of steel plates), holding a real KIA car at the top

The Challenge:
• Non-standard permanent steel frame structure, made of thin plate elements subject to large buckling and deformation
• Dynamic and non-linear analysis and behaviour

The Solution:
• Using FEA analysis with fine meshing allowed us to identify highly stressed area, in particular the connections and joints
• Graitec Advance Design could handle this project easily, even non-standard structural forms in dynamic and non-linear analysis. Due to Advance Design�s user friendly interface, any changes could be managed with ease

User Benefits :
• Dynamic, non-linear and buckling FEA analysis
• BIM enabled, Comprehensive Calculation output
• User Friendly 3D visualisation + CAD tools, fast geometry generation

"Using Advance Design software opens another window in the market to compete, enabling engineers and designers to manage analysis and designs swiftly and smoothly, featuring several options which provide a broad enriched platform to choose" - Hooman Baghi, Principal Engineer, CAPITA Property & Infrastructure
