An excellent example is the extensive co-operation between Peikko and StruSoft, a Swedish leading engineering software provider. StruSoft’s FEM Design is an advanced modeling software for finite element analysis and design of load-bearing concrete, steel, timber and foundation structures according to Eurocode with National Annex. And now, Peikko’s Punching Reinforcement products are part of FEM Design package. Of course, the calculations can be done by using Peikko’s Peikko Designer® Punching Reinforcement module as well. This cooperation benefits especially the Scandinavian countries, as this is where a big part of FEM Design users are based.
Peikko’s PSB® Punching Reinforcement is an ETA-approved system providing the highest resistance on the market. PSB® Punching and Shear Rails offer simple and reliable solutions against punching shear failure and shear failure of slabs, foundations, walls and beams by increasing their resistance. In Scandinavia, PSB® has recently been found very suitable for infrastructure construction projects as it can be used for instance in bridges. Further information, video and reference projects on PSB® can be found here.
When two important companies bring their strengths together, they can offer complete solutions and make the life of a designer a lot easier!
