FRENCH BUILDING OF SHANGHAI’S UNIVERSAL EXHIBITION
  • FRENCH BUILDING OF SHANGHAI’S UNIVERSAL EXHIBITION

THE CHALLENGE THE SOLUTION
· Quality of documents
· Automatic post-processing results update
· Complexity of the structure, especially the bracing system, consists of several elements attached with 3D connections
· Multi-material structure
· Temperature effects on the structure

“Nowadays, calculation is no longer strictly for specialized engineers, since computers have made this task simpler. With 3D models, engineers can literally see how the building works, almost as easy as if they were actually in the building. This is exactly how ADVANCE Design, with its intuitive interface, assisted us on this project.”
Jean Marc WEILL,
Director of C&E Engineering
