SUMO USE CASE

Challenge

ABC Construction Ltd. needed to design and analyze a six-story commercial office building, ensuring it adhered to local building codes and regulations. The objective was to create a safe, structurally sound, and cost-effective framework that optimized material usage and minimized construction costs. The project required comprehensive structural analysis, including load calculations and stress analysis, and detailed documentation at each stage of the design process.

Solution

Using Prokon Sumo, the engineering team began by importing architectural drawings and defining the building geometry. They input relevant loads, created a 3D model, and assigned material properties to the structural elements. The team performed both linear and nonlinear static analyses and, if necessary, dynamic analysis for seismic activity. Utilizing Prokon Sumo’s design modules, they designed and optimized beams, columns, slabs, and foundations, ensuring compliance with local building codes. Detailed analysis reports, design calculations, and construction drawings were generated for approval.

Results

The project was successfully completed with a comprehensive structural analysis and an optimized design that minimized material use while ensuring safety and compliance. Detailed documentation facilitated swift approval from regulatory bodies, and the use of Prokon Sumo streamlined the design process, saving time and effort. ABC Construction Ltd. was pleased with the cost savings and the efficiency of the design process, which provided a reliable and regulatory-compliant structural solution for their commercial office building.
