CADRE Analytic

Engineering services and software

Services

CADRE Analytic provides structural engineering analyses prepared by licensed professional engineers for many types of structures, from the very small to the very large.  Along with conducting a structural analysis for clients, CADRE Analytic will provide the actual FEA model files, loading files, output data solutions, and the software enabled to allow the client to examine the models in more detail and extend the analysis as desired.  

CADRE Analytic is especially capable and experienced in providing structural analyses (wind, snow, and seismic) for unusual and complex structures such as geodesic domes, towers, and large metal artistic sculptures.  Examples of some of our work include the aluminum tube pergolas at Miami Lincoln Park in Florida, the concrete and steel "Shade tree" sculpture at the Santa Rosa park in San Luis Obispo, CA, and the "Stylus" sculpture that currently adorns the government building in San Luis Obispo, CA.  Contact CADRE Analytic for project proposals and estimates.

If you prefer, you can expand your capabilities.  Purchase the software and we can assist you in building your first models and performing these types of analyses yourself. 

Software

CADRE Analytic has provided quality Windows based engineering software since 1994.  We provide a collection of structural analysis software, structural design software, and pipe flow system analysis software that are intended to compliment each other in the analysis of a wide variety of engineering projects.  These applications are developed, maintained, and supported by practicing professional engineers.  They are versatile user-friendly engineering tools that are easy to learn and quick to adapt to almost any engineering endeavor. 

The applications have extensive help files, tutorial exercises, user manuals, white papers, and a large collection of sample models and tutorial exercises with detail discussions of their analysis objectives and model construction methods.  CADRE Analytic also provides personalized technical support from licensed professional engineers and architects by telephone and email without charge.  We suggest you try the tutorial exercises and review some of the sample models before we get into the your first project.
