Calculation Programs and Software Development

The SGAI studio is looking for constant improvement using the latest technologies.
Since 1974 it uses the latest generation of electronic processors with the highest power available.
The softwares used by the SGAI Studio in the various engineering sectors are the following:

  • Structural Design
  • Road Design and Digital Terrain Model (DTM)
  • Geotechnical and Geomechanical Design, Tunnels Design
  • Thermotechnical Design
  • Hydraulic Design
  • Hydrogeology, Hydrology and Water chemistry
  • Metric calculations, Price Analysis and Safety


Softwares developed in-house

For the resolution of engineering problems the engineer Filippo Forlani has developed the following softwares for the SGAI Studio (some are free):

  • SGAI Tools
  • SGAIS urf
  • SGAI 3D Rock Fall Simulation
  • SGAI Hydro Geologist
  • SGAI View and SGAIppMOD
  • SGAI Bishop
  • SGAI Wedge
  • SGAI Piper
  • SGAI Cartho


BIM - Building Information Modeling

The design activity is increasingly demanding and competitive this requires modernizing and updating work organization.
With BIM (Building Information Model) is possible to create a 3D intelligent model used to simplify coordination, simulation and visualization of the project, thus improving management and planning.
The advantages offered by this tool are the reduction of errors and omissions in the design documents, costs and time optimization leading to greater efficiency and productivity.
The development of a BIM Project allows to implement infrastructural , structural, environmental, hydraulic and topographic "models" able to grant a quick access to the information of each phase of the project and to adopt in a dynamic way the variations required by the Clients / Validating Authorities.
