About Us:  Developers

Developers of Strand7


Based in Sydney, Australia, we have been developing finite element analysis (FEA) software and providing computational engineering solutions, worldwide, since 1988. We developed software for MS-DOS and the X Window System until 1996 when we switched to the Microsoft Windows platform.

Our flagship product is the Strand7 software - a general purpose FEA system for structural analysis and heat transfer.

We commenced development of Strand7 in 1996 as a completely new product, designed specifically for Windows. It was first released as Strand7 R1.0.3 in June 1999. Since then there have been a number of new releases, each offering significant new features and improvements over previous releases.

Strand7 is now used for a wide range of structural analysis applications in mechanical, civil, structural, aeronautical, mining, marine, transportation and biomechanical engineering.

We offer a range of services centred around the Strand7 software, including:
  • Strand7 and its continual development, at a reasonable price;
  • superior technical support to the users of Strand7;
  • theoretical and practical courses in FEA and the use of Strand7;
  • structural analysis, design and verification services.

We are responsive to the needs of our users and we endeavour to incorporate their feedback into our software and our services. We strive to correct any errors that may be found in our software, as soon as they are brought to our attention. Our commitment to our users has been a major factor contributing to the success of Strand7.
