On-going development


ShellDesign is undergoing continuous development to incorporate experience from actual projects in addition to ensuring that all relevant design calculations are in accordance with the latest versions of the standards.


Important on-going and planned further developments are summarized as follows:

  • The Draugen platform legComplete triaxial MCFT
  • Geometrical second order effect included in the consistent stiffness method
  • Different material models for concrete and reinforcement when exposed to high temperatures variations
  • Consistent stiffness method for solid elements
  • Consistent stiffness method with water pressure in cracks
