Vladimir Cervenka presented RC cracking at the fib Symposium in Maastricht this month.
You are warmly welcome to visit the lecture by Jan Červenka, the presentation title is "Application of ATENA software for Seismic Assessment of Nuclear Power Plant Structures".
Today, we release ATENA version 5.4.1d, which mainly contain bugfixes and small improvements (for details, please see the version description in Downloads).
Dear users of ATENA software, next seminar is planned to June 14-16, 2017.
ATENA animation of temperature evolution in assessment of thermal loading on a building frame.
Dear users of ATENA software, we are very happy to inform you about the new release of ATENA version 5.4!
Today, we offer all users with valid maintenance interested in testing our pre-release to download ATENA 5.4.0h. We expect this version to be especially interesting for user who want to try the new features, above all injected cables and 2D shells + 1D beams.
The issue of needing to manually invoke the Utilities-Renumber command after generating the mesh for 2D models (otherwise, there is an error message when writing the ATENA Input File) has been fixed in GiD 13.1.2d.
We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year to be spent the way you like.
We have had some problem with our web space and are currently re-uploading the ATENA installers. It is expected to take a few days to fully restore it - we appologize for the inconveniece.
Latest version of ATENA software is available in DOWNLOADS section right now!
Overview of new ATENA version 5.3. - Modeling contact problems in ATENA. - Modeling strengthening of reinforced concrete structures. - Modeling of construction process in ATENA for bridges and tunnels. - Modeling of fiber-reinforced concrete structures.
One advantage using ATENA for the finite element analyses is that it calculates all material properties based on the cube strength with equations from Model Code 2010. Another great advantage with this program is that it is specially designed for concrete, which makes it easier for the user since good default values are given. The main advantage is that, even though the analyses described severe cracking, the program never had problems finding aconvergent solution. A novice user can rather easy create advanced models in ATENA.

Dear Madam/Sir, we are very pleased to announce you that we will take part in the exhibition during the Baukongress 2016 in Vienna, Austria from April 28th to 29th, 2016.
Dear friends of ATENA software, the first quarter of 2016 is already behind us, and probably all of you are fully busy with new interesting projects. We would like to use this opportunity to inform you about the latest development on our ATENA software, which we strive to continuously develop in order to bring the latest achievements in the numerical modeling of reinforced concrete to your desk.
Dear Madam/Sir, we are very pleased to announce you that we will take part in the exhibition during the ACI Spring Convention in Milwaukee, USA from April 17th to 21st, 2016.
Dear ATENA friends, the new version 5.3.3 is available now!
Dear Madam/Sir, we are very pleased to announce you that we will take part in the exhibition during the Brückenbausymposium, being held on 14 - 15 March 2016 in Dresden.
Finally we can ski in/out of the office :-).
Dear users of ATENA software, we are very happy to inform you about the new release of ATENA version 5.3.2. It brings you several very interesting new features in our flagship product ATENA Science, which should enhance your productivity and give you new capabilities and post-processing options that will deepen your understanding of your concrete structures.
Dear friends, we wish you a Happy Holiday Season, and a Happy and Prosperous New Year. We are looking forward to our cooperation and wish you a lot of success with ATENA and AmQuake calculations during the whole year 2016.
The beta release of new ATENA version is available on our web page from October to all of our users with valid maintenance licence.
After conducting the first tests under Windows 10, ATENA 5.1.2d works normally under that system.
Červenka Consulting is the winner of the contest among 66 participants from several continents. University of Toronto team headed by Michael Collins and Evan Bentz was engaged at an experiment investigation of a large slab elements. With dimensions of the specimen, 4m deep and 21m span, it is the largest shear test ever done.
Zdeněk P. Bažant is the only engineer among 10 foreign members out of 47 fellows elected this year to the Royal Society of London. One of just a few top-cited researchers in his field, Bažant is best known for his discovery of the scaling law for the energetic size effect in quasibrittle structural failure. He is also the author of the microplane material model suitable for modeling brittle materials such as concrete. The versions M4 and M7 of this unique material model are also available in ATENA software.
Dear users of ATENA software, next seminar is planned to June 10-12, 2015.
Dear friends of ATENA software, we would like to inform you that we have just released a brand new ATENA version 5.0.3i., including the latest enhancements and features that meet our customers' needs and contribute to ATENA user friendliness and comfort. We consider our latest ATENA version as another step forward in comparison with the former ATENA releases. Moreover, we are intensively working on other versions to come to light later on.
Engineers are missing suitable safety formats and guidelines for the application of nonlinear simulation for design of reinforced concrete structures. We want to change this. Vladimir Cervenka, therefore, played a key role in formulating these concepts in the new fib Model Code 2010, and presented the new guidelines at the IPW conference which took place in Brno, Czech Republic on November 6-8, 2013.
Dear friends of ATENA software, we are very pleased to announce the release of new ATENA version 5. This version is our next step in our continuous effort to bring to your desk the latest achievements in nonlinear modelling of reinforced concrete structures. Our main emphasis is on the continuous development of our advanced ATENA Science product, which supports static, creep, dynamic, thermal and moisture transport analyses.

Took place in Prague, Czech Republic on September 9 - 11, 2013.
The testing of ATENA Version 5 continues, now with a wider group of beta-testers. We collect their comments, bug reports, and improvement suggestions till the end of June. Then, we plan to release version 5 after incorporating any important fixes.
The release of ATENA version 5, originally planned for November, has been postponed. We have decided to include a few more improvements and conduct more comprehensive testing before giving the new version to you.
