Intuitive design of ATENA Studio 
In practice, engineers often need to design a reinforced concrete foundation slab, when the main design criterion is the crack width limit at the bottom or top surface. ATENA version 5 now includes a comprehensive transport and shrinkage model that provide the necessary answers to engineers. It is possible to calculate the hydration heat, which develops in the structure based on the concrete composition and cement type. More accurate estimation of the shrinkage is possible by coupling the stress analysis with the transport model, which predicts the time dependent drying of the material through its thickness.

ATENA Software can be successfully used for analysis of behaviour and failure of fibre reinforced concrete (FRC) structures.
Crack initiation and development, load carrying capacity and postcritical behaviour of structures, structural parts or experimental specimens
can be investigated.
Nonlinear fracture analysis accounting tensile capacity of material enables to exploit reserves, which are usually
neglected or diminished in codes or in the linear analysis. Since the tensile behaviour in the FRC is dominating, the potential profit from the
nonlinear analysis of FRCbased structures is much higher than in standard reinforced concrete structures.
Constitutive material models in ATENA were adopted for description of tensile properties of the FRCmaterial.
They account for the high toughness and ductility of FRC as well as possible uncertainties and spatial variability of the material properties.
Inverse analysis of different types of FRC material tests has been performed and evaluated.
Based on the obtained results the optimal material input sets for practical utilization of the different numerical material models of FRC were
suggested and applied in design practise.

Cervenka Consulting has teamed up with the University of Dresden and Leonhardt, Andrä und Partner to develop an innovative virtual laboratory for modern stochastic and nonlinear structural analysis methods based on massive simulation with CAD design integration through BIM and the access of public cloud and private grid for mass computing. This development will be supported by the financial funding from the European Eurostars/Eureka program.
