Structures virtual laboratory

Testing and breaking are the best ways to understand how things work and how much they resist.

For infrastructures, this is hardly viable due to their dimensions and related cost.

Iktes is a virtual laboratory where we test structures through detailed computational simulation.

Our clients obtain a more complete, detailed and precise knowledge about the behavior of their structures, resulting in more appropriate decision taking and better solutions in the following fields:

Structures can present complex and uncertain responses due to multiple factors and phenomena, such as:

  • Presence of damage

    Cracking, yielding…

  • Soil-structure interaction

    Or with vicinity structures, services…

  • Combination of materials
  • Presence of joints
  • Use of advanced materials

    Fiber reinforced concrete, textiles, shape memory alloys...

  • Use of dampers and energy dissipators

In these cases, it becomes especially relevant to:


Detailed and adequate knowledge of the problem’s REALITY

Iktes team is highly experienced and specialized in nonlinear analysis, the most advanced tool for a realistic simulation of the structures.

With particular emphasis in fragile materials like concrete and masonry, complex configurations or with joints, and soil-structure interaction.

We promote and participate in forefront research in our different activity fields, developing and testing vanguard technologies in order to provide the most powerful and innovative solutions to our clients.
