Ramboll Sweeden: ATENA Experience

„We have successfully used ATENA for design of the strengthening of some old RC frame structures at Slussen in Stockholm. Nonlinear capabilities were needed for reliable assessment of the remaining structural capacity and simulation the effect of the optimized strengthening.“

Says Mikael Hallgren, Ramboll, Sweden AB.
