Assessment of steel halls

In the hall building steel constructions are widely used because short installation times can be realized on site by a high degree of prefabrication. A wide range of rolled and welded sections and columns allows wide-span frame structures. Their application ranges from storage and production halls on park houses to sophisticated exhibition halls, shopping malls and office buildings. In the structural design of such construction projects are available from the SKI engineering company with the following services to:

Own tool (macro) for frame structures

Numerical structural analysis with finite element models

The use of FE-models in special cases of interest, for example if the load for a node connection should be determined in consideration eigenformaffiner imperfections (GMNIA analysis). This type of non-linear structural analyzes with shell and solid elements (see figure) belong to the standard scope of CIP engineering company.
