ETCulvert is a
high-performance Windows-based program that seamlessly combines
the functionality of a state-of-the-art structural analysis
engine with both fully-automatic design and analysis
capabilities. Integration of the critical design tasks into one
system means you get superior productivity, flexibility and
improved quality control. It makes full use of current Windows
and V-bottom precast and cast-in-place culverts can be handled. In automatic
design mode, ETCulvert quickly analyzes and designs wall
thicknesses and reinforcement sizes and spacing. A comprehensive
reinforcement schedule is produced, complete with all rebar
and wire dimensions and bends. By switching to analysis mode, you get
complete control over the design. Both AASHTO Standard and LRFD
Specifications are supported.

Next Generation Prestressed Girder
PSBeam is a high-performance,
Windows-based system for prestressed concrete bridge girder
design. Its computational engine processes design changes at
blazing speeds, giving you more time to check alternative
options and refine your designs. With PSBeam, you can explore
more possibilities and offer your clients the highest level of
- Design simple-span or
multi-span, continuous structures.
- Get dual code support.
Switch instantly between Standard Specs and LRFD at anytime during
design. See exactly where the differences really are. There's no
better way to learn LRFD.
- Switch between U.S. and
- Have high performance.
PSBeam sets a new standard for design efficiency. And since it's a full
Windows implementation, you can be up to speed in no time.
- Explore multiple design
options quickly. Powerful auto design features and support for all
popular girder and superstructure framing types let you do more, faster.
- Enjoy no copy
protection. PSBeam is a licensed product, but does not require a
hardware key or a special installation code to operate, so you can
operate at maximum flexibility.
- Choose from several
reasonably priced licensing options. You can purchase or lease PSBeam,
whichever better suits your needs. Site and enterprise license options
are also available.
With its flexibility, high performance, and
rock-solid reliability, PSBeam has earned the respect of
bridge engineers throughout the country. Version 4 delivers a
host of new capabilities to enhance your design process. And
support for integrated design will help you in your
transition toward a fully integrated design office.
Major New features Added to V4:
- Load Rating – Produce both
operating and inventory load ratings for your designs. PSBeam's flexible
and powerful vehicle modeling capabilities allow you to load rate for any
type of vehicle.
- Post-Tensioning – PT is
finally now in the realm of the typical design office. By segmenting your
girders into multiple pieces and incorporating post-tensioning tendons,
you extend your spans to beyond 200 feet.
- Flexural Strength
- The option to compute the flexural strength using a sophisticated
strain compatibility has been implemented. Now, CIP concrete and beam
concrete are dealt with separately, each with separate properties.
Complex girder geometry, such as multiple fillets, is also factored into
the analysis. Every bar and strand is also dealt with precisely. The
result; the most accurate results possible for heavily reinforced
- 3D Visualization - OpenGL Graphics provides
stunning 3D graphics to give physical meaning to your designs.
- Section Property Generation – Rapid section
generation and parametric capabilities have been added, as well as new
library management features. Sections with radius transitions can be
handled quickly and parametrically.
- Load Tables – Great for preliminary design,
this feature quickly generates graphs of span vs. number of strands for
specified beam spacings.
- Data Grids – Now edit and navigate through
large amounts of data quickly and easily.
- Library Features – Now access section
libraries from any location. Import, view, and delete features facilitate

Bridge Pier, Bent, and Abutment Design in Accordance with
AASHTO LRFD or Standard
Introducing ET Pier Designer, a
high-performance Windows-based program for the design and
analysis of highway bridge piers, bents, and abutments. ET Pier
seamlessly combines the functionality of a state-of-the-art
structural analysis engine and concrete column, beam, and
footing design programs. Integration of the critical design
tasks into one system means you get superior productivity and
flexibility and improved quality control.
ET Pier is specifically designed
for bridge substructures. Powerful parametric modeling wizards
are included to facilitate rapid structure layout and
generation. Specify which load combinations to investigate and
ET Pier will automatically process them and quickly identify the
governing case for each component of the structure.
And as with PSBeam, ET Pier
includes hot code switching, allowing you to switch between the
AASHTO LRFD and Standard Specifications at any time during
design. Instantly, you can switch specifications to see just
where the differences between them really are. There's no better
way to learn LRFD!
- Piers, bents, and abutments
- AASHTO LRFD or Std Specs
- Dual units: US & metric
- Hammerhead or multi-column
- Spread or pile footings
- AASHTO load types & groups
- Automatic analysis
- True 3D Modeling

Technologies offers two basic licensing options. Software can
either be purchased (prepaid license) or it can be leased on an
annual basis. Long-term users tend to favor the purchase option
while firms have an occasional need or are reimbursed for direct
expenses from their clients tend to favor the lease option.
Detailed explanations of each option are given below.
Purchase (Prepaid License):
The purchase option includes ninety (90) days of technical
support via telephone, fax, and/or e-mail. Optionally, yearly
maintenance can be purchased (call for pricing). Maintenance
includes unlimited technical support and new versions of the
software that are released during the maintenance period.
Option 2: Yearly
The lease option is renewable annually and may be cancelled with
thirty (30) days written notice prior to the anniversary date of
the lease. Leased software includes full support and all updates
to the software during the period of the lease.
