NUMERICAL SIMULATION

Answers for the real world

We can offer a vast range of solutions for the engineering and construction industry. From simple linear elastic static analyses to complex non-linear phenomena, including dynamics.

CIVIL AND STRUCTURAL ENGINEERING

Solution for problems

Optimized structural design and clever solutions are always our final goal, to offer the best proposals to our clients.

STRUCTURAL HEALTH MONITORING

Guidance in prevention

We can help you planning your structural health monitoring layout and guiding you through the signal acquisition and elaboration, even with numerical simulation guidance. Prevention is the key answer in existing structures.

SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT

Tool automation

With our experience in the world of open source software, we are able to help building automated tools for civil and structural engineering, customized on the user needs.

 

OUR PROJECTS

Kobe Innovation Engineering solves each client’s issues by providing a comprehensive approach backed by our team of experienced professionals. Our process fosters collaboration and innovation to ensure we not only understand the core needs of clients, but also help them develop successfully. Read our success stories below.

LABORATORY TESTS

Diagonal test of a masonry specimen

The numerical simulation of the diagonal test was performed to qualify the constitutive law representation for such types of experimental testing.

A RENAISSANCE PALACE

The Bourbon del Monte palace static vulnerability

The causes of the old palace recent damage pattern were investigated through the whole complex modellation and the hypothesis of a soil local failure.

A RENAISSANCE STATUE

Michelangelo's David exposure to vibrations

The statue's vulnerability was investigated during opening and closing days of the Galleria dell'Accademia, with the modelling performed by Kobe to confirm the absence of major risks.

OLD FORTIFICATIONS

Vulnerability of the fortress

The massive masonry fortress' damage patterns were investigated, finding in a horizontal soil movement a possible cause for the major vertical crack opening.

TOWER STRUCTURES VULNERABILITY

Seismicity and Cultural Heritage

Vulnerability of tower-like structures possibly exposed to seismic excitation in all the directions (horizontal and vertical). Usage of transient non-linear dynamics for 3d elements.

RELIGIOUS BUILDINGS

Consolidation of a Medieval church

The survey campaign was performed under our guidance and the consolidation structural design was then delivered, based on the improvement of the static and seismic behaviour of the bell-tower.

OIL PLATFORM EXTRACTION

Long time structural health monitoring

Kobe members partecipated in the assessment of the platform correlated risks.

CULTURAL HERITAGE MONITORING

New methods for the San Gimignano towers

A workflow for the determination of the vulnerability associated to tower-like structures has been implemented thanks to Kobe members partecipation.
