MC-Bauchemie offers new software for the design of CFRP reinforcement

New software Lasoft 4.0 from MC-Bauchemie

Lasoft 4.0 is both a structural design and a structural analysis program offering computations aligned to the latest DAfStb code of practice

Bottrop, 10 May 2016. For many years now, carbon fibre-reinforced plastics (CFRP) in the form of strips, plates or CF sheets have been used to restore and increase the load-bearing capacity of structural components. The CFRP elements are adhesive-bonded to the existing structure to augment its tensile reinforcement. Structural engineers can call upon a number of different software products for the dimensioning and design of such reinforcing measures. But now MC-Bauchemie has launched a new version of its own Lasoft design software, developed on the basis of the latest DAfStb (German Committee for Reinforced Concrete) code of practice. As such, it is currently unmatched in the marketplace. Unlike other programs to date, Lasoft 4.0, comprises not just a dimensioning but also a structural analysis capability, which means it offers greater convenience and time-saving efficiency than conventional dimensioning software packages. A series of seminars is planned for June 2016 in Germany, during which interested structural designers and engineers will have an opportunity to get to know and use Lasoft 4.0.
