Indian Codes (NBCI) in ProtaStructure Suite – 2022: Tailored for the Future of Indian Structural Engineering

India, with its vast landscapes and seismic belts, requires a robust and adaptive approach when it comes to structural design and engineering. Keeping this in mind, ProtaSoftware has incorporated the first implementation of Indian codes (NBCI) into its latest offering – ProtaStructure Suite – 2022.

Bridging the Local-Global Gap with ProtaStructure 2022

The modern structural engineer needs tools that are locally relevant yet globally adaptable. ProtaStructure is setting the pace by integrating crucial Indian codes. This includes:

  • RC member design
  • Steel member design
  • Tailored loading codes for diverse Indian landscapes
  • Comprehensive wind load calculations
  • Seismic load calculations for India’s seismic zones
  • Seismic irregularity checks, building checks, and detailing

As the construction industry in India continues to evolve, having tools that cater to its unique challenges becomes indispensable.
