Engineering Structures & Software
The Department of Engineering Structures and Software as part of the Institute deals with design and analysis of engineering RC and steel structures and has a long experience in realization of projects related to a variety of structures, a great number of which represent strategic and significant structures for the Republic of Macedonia. These include: bridges, dams, industrial halls, silos, chimneys, different power structures (turbo-generators, cooling towers, power substations), specific high-rise buildings as is the Millennium Cross, etc. Our department deals with study of seismic isolation systems applicable for seismic protection of new and seismic revitalization of existing bridges and other engineering facilities. Repair and strengthening of engineering structures is one of the most important tasks of our department. We can be engaged in any phase of a project starting with conceptual design through final design, carrying out all the necessary analyses and preparing graphical details and bases required for realization of construction. Additionally, if preliminary and final design already exists, we can be involved as project reviewers and/or provide expert opinions on the seismic safety and protection of the considered structure. Development of original software packages for analysis of engineering structures and dams is carried out in our department, as well.
