This space is devoted to SAP2000. Please visit the Technical Knowledgebase for documentation on features common to all CSI Software.
SAP2000 is a general purpose civil engineering software ideal for the analysis and design of any type of structural system. Basic and advanced systems, ranging from 2D to 3D, simple geometry to complex, may be modeled, analyzed, designed, and optimized using a practical, intuitive object-based modeling environment which simplifies and streamlines the engineering process. The SAPFire analysis engine integral to SAP2000 drives a sophisticated finite element analysis procedure. An additional suite of advanced analysis features are available to users engaging state of the art practice with nonlinear and dynamic consideration. Created by engineers for effective engineering, SAP2000 is the ideal software tool for users of any experience level, designing any structural system.
Integrated modeling templates, code-based loading assignments, advanced analysis options, design optimization procedures, and customizable output reports all coordinate across a powerful platform to make SAP2000 especially useful for practicing professionals.
SAP2000 is also an excellent medium for education. Open SAP2000 and follow the CSI
Watch & Learn
video series to receive not only instruction on software use, but also insight into structural engineering philosophy and practice.
Several different levels of SAP2000 are available. For details, please refer to the
