Essel - LUSAS Authorized Reseller

We provide assistance with LUSAS software sales, licence renewals and Technical support.

LUSAS is an Engineering analysis and design software where you can design and analyse any structure in one solution, including Geotechnical / Soil-structure interaction modelling. LUSAS finite element analysis software is available in LT, Standard or Plus versions dependent upon the software product. Each product is designed for use by engineers in particular industries.

    LT versions are suitable for linear static analysis of structural frames and grillages.
    Standard versions of software are suitable for everyday linear static and linear dynamic analysis.
    Plus versions allow for more advanced analyses to be undertaken and include an extended advanced high-performance element library.

The analysis capabilities of the standard and plus versions of all LUSAS software products can be extended further by using Nonlinear, Dynamic, Thermal/Field, Fast Solvers and other product options.

  1. For Bridge Engineering - LUSAS Bridge software is used for all types of bridge design, analysis and assessment from simple grillages through to complex cable stayed and suspension structures. It has an unrivalled range of analysis facilities for linear static, fundamental frequency, seismic, dynamic, soil-structure interaction, large deflection, staged construction, creep, prestress, post tensioning and fatigue analysis.
  2. For Structural Engineering - LUSAS Civil & Structural software is used on all types of structures from buildings, grandstands and towers through to dams, docks and tunnels.It has comprehensive facilities for all types of civil and structural analysis including linear, nonlinear, staged construction, soil-structure interaction, creep, prestress, post tensioning, seismic, blast, buckling, impact, fire and fatigue analysis.
  3. For Composites Engineering - LUSAS Composite has advanced shell and solid composite elements for all types of composite engineering. It allows easy definition and visualisation of layups, and accurate delamination and failure modelling using a variety of industry standard failure criteria.
  4. For Mechanical Engineering - LUSAS Analyst is used in the automotive, aerospace, defence, manufacturing and general mechanical industries. It is used for general engineering analysis and has highly regarded nonlinear and contact capabilities for solving all types of linear static, nonlinear, dynamic and thermal engineering problem, including thermal/mechanical coupling.
  5. For Academic / Research Use - LUSAS Academic is for use only by educational establishments for teaching purposes and research. By using the software protection device and licence key supplied, the full licenced version allows access to any LUSAS commercial product, access to most LUSAS analysis product options, with no restriction on model size.
  6. For HPM (High Precision Moulding) - LUSAS HPM software allows design engineers to extract master model and tooling surfaces "right first time" ensuring that correctly sized post-cure components are obtained without iterative guesswork. Its use can shorten product development cycles and significantly speed-up time-to-market.

The finite element analysis capabilities of the Standard and Plus versions of LUSAS Bridge, LUSAS Civil & Structural, LUSAS Analyst and LUSAS Composite software product can be extended by purchasing additional software options according to your analysis requirements i.e. Fast Solvers, Steel Design, Vehicle Load Optimisation, Steel and Composite Deck Designer, IMDplus Analysis, Nonlinear Analysis, Dynamic Analysis, Thermal / Field Analysis, Heat of Hydration Analysis and Rail Track Analysis.
