Survey Invites Input from Structural Engineers on Future Direction of Engineering Software Development

Cambridge, 30 March, 2006. - Leading IT consultancy, Cambashi, has announced the start of a Web-based survey of the structural engineering community. As the construction industry wrestles with both the shift from 2D to 3D CAD and the newly-instigated Eurocodes, this research investigates the extent to which today’s engineering software meets industry’s needs. The survey can be found at .

As Cambashi consultant Mark Biagi points out, “Recent developments in analysis software have greatly enhanced the scope of structural engineers. However, with little standardisation or integration between the various analysis, design and detailing packages there are also many risks.”

Industry participation.
With structural engineers required to share data with each other, as well as with architects, building contractors and clients who may well all be using different software tools, a wide range of data exchange issues urgently needs to be addressed.

The Cambashi on-line survey has been developed to investigate these issues to determine the level of interest that exists in a solution and to give practising structural engineers the opportunity to influence the development of future solutions.

To encourage participation, Cambashi will donate $5.00 to charity for every engineer who completes the questionnaire. In addition, every respondent will have the chance of winning a state-of-the-art in-car satellite navigation system.

All interested parties are invited to visit and to follow the link to the survey. Closing date for responses is April 7th.
