Performance Based Design
Performance based design services can be a more efficient means to ensuring structures are code compliant. Prescriptive design is often used because of limited time and budgets, but it relies on simplified models. This means that progressive collapse analysis, seismic design, and designing against progressive collapse are often handled by over engineering the structure, just to be on the safe side.
With ASI’s Extreme Loading for Structures (ELS) software, ASI engineers are capable of studying the whole structure together as a complete structural system (walls, floors, columns, beams, foundations, and reinforcement) all in full 3D. The result is an overall reduction in material required to meet project requirements, and cost savings that is passed along to the customer.
ASI relies on the experience of its team of highly qualified engineers, scientists, and software developers to provide its clients with advanced structural analysis and simulation consultation services. ASI can perform both linear and non-linear, static and dynamic analysis of structures undergoing either natural or man-made extreme loading events. ASI takes a performance-based design approach, whether it is for the design and protection of structures against extreme loads or it is for the design of safe demolitions, it is ASI’s goal to ensure a safe and efficient result for clients.
