KULTECH UPPC (Unbonded Post-tensioned Precast Concrete) v0.0 is a state-of-the-art structural analysis software that performs nonlinear cyclic static displacement analysis of the unique UPPC systems.
Prestressed precast system is an unrivalled construction technology in large-span, large-height industrial buildings with very large gravitational loading demands. These structures are expected to be very popular in the near future due to the increasing demand for logistics centers post-COVID era. The evolution of earthquake engineering approach towards Damage-Controlled Design also emphasizes the big potential for precast prestressed seismic systems. (see Figure below)
However, these systems have unique behaviour which require them to be modeled with nonconventional approaches. (Please refer to the User Manual here for detailed explanation of this phenomenon) KULTECH UPPC v0.0 is the solution!
