Static structure analyzes

 Structural analysis is the most frequently used type of calculation in structural design. This can be used both analytically and with numerical calculation methods . Stationary loads are applied to structures or components in order to calculate the following parameters:

Influence of the ring stiffeners on the deformations in the circumferential direction
Deformations of a double silo
Node connection with diagonal brace
Stresses of a filter housing

In these cases, one speaks of a calculation according to the first-order theory. The system is in a stable equilibrium. According to the second order theory, it is in equilibrium in deformed position (GMNIA). A special feature of static structural analysis is stability problems, whereby the system is in an indifferent or unstable equilibrium. This can lead to a sudden failure of the structure without prior notice. Stability problems occur when the structure or component is subjected to pressure or shear stress. These include primarily:

  • Buckling
  • Bending
  • Torsional flexural buckling
  • Buckling of plates and shells

The SKI Ingenieurges. mbH is a structural engineer and can offer static structural analyses according to first-order theory as well as second-order theory. This essentially comprises the following range of services:

  • All structural analyses as a result of stationary loading with and without prestressing (pressure rods, truss bars)
  • Stability problems of beams and other members
  • Buckling problems of plates and shells
  • Geometric and material non-linear calculation with imperfections (GMNIA)
  • Diaphragm calculation with breakdown problem
