How to choose the right structural engineering software?

The choice of structural engineering software today is very wide. However, a lack of comparison data makes it difficult for engineers to make a well-informed decision about which software tools would be the best fit for their practice or for a particular project.

This article considers some of the factors affecting choice of software, such as technical criteria, usability and interoperability, and describes a selection tool developed by BuroHappold Engineering to enable the firm’s project teams to make an appropriate choice of software when embarking on a new project.
