Civil Engineering Software

The role of technology is important for every stage of your civil engineering degree, so it makes sense to develop confidence in a range of software.

Your degree should equip you with all the skills you need for the civil engineering specialism you want to pursue as a career. We firmly believe that the design software you use at university should enable you to do more than design and analyse 3D models. We can train you up on the latest programs for multiple functionalities; from finite element analysis tools to simulation software, to costing projects, My Uni Tutors enables you to master advanced software skills.

SAP2000

SAP2000 is professional software that is used for analysing most structures. Our private tutors will instruct you on how to use its versatile interface which allows you to design 2D and 3D models with ease.

My Uni Tutors use SAP2000 for:

  • integrated modelling templates
  • code-based loading assignments
  • advanced analysis
  • design optimisation procedures

ANSYS

ANSYS is simulation software used in engineering. Our team can demonstrate its use as a virtual environment to simulate tests and working conditions, and instruct you in ANSYS advanced engineering analyses.

My Uni Tutors use ANSYS for:

  • structure / dynamics interactions
  • determining product functions
  • numerical and graphical results
  • integrating with other software

ABAQUS

ABAQUS is considered to be the go-to finite element analysis tool for simulation. It is used by researchers for linear and non-linear problems and our private tutors are happy to help students explore the modelling capability of this software.

My Uni Tutors use Abaqus for:

  • general purpose solutions
  • advanced meshing
  • integrated modelling and visualisation
  • metaphysics capabilities for multiple fields

SAFE

SAFE is used in the design of floors and foundations. My Uni Tutors can demonstrate how SAFE integrates the entire engineering design process from analysis through to detailing of concrete slabs.

My Uni Tutors use SAFE for:

  • models and import options
  • locating and sizing reinforcement
  • generating and exporting sections
  • elevations and tables

AutoCAD

AutoCAD is used for drafting 2D and 3D models. Learn how to use the various templates to analyse the support structures of your virtual building for stress and load levels.

My Uni Tutors use AutoCAD for:

  • designing components
  • analysing piping and electrical systems
  • bespoke 3D printing
  • testing functionality
