|Software Name:||Extreme Loading for Structures (ELS)|
Extreme Loading for Structures (ELS) software is an advanced non-linear structural analysis software tool that allows structural engineers to study the 3D behavior of structures through both the continuum and discrete stages of loading. This includes static and dynamic loads such as those generated by blast, seismic events, impact, progressive collapse, and wind. Unlike many structural analysis software tools which are based on the Finite Element Method (FEM), ELS utilizes a non-linear solver based on the Applied Element Method (AEM). This allows ELS is to automatically analyze structural behavior during elastic and inelastic modes including the automatic detection and generation of plastic hinges, buckling, cracks, and separation. The resulting debris and impacts with structural elements are also automatically analyzed and stress redistribution is inherently calculated.
