ACE OCP is a module of SCADA Pro
Representing a generic real-world optimum design computing platform for civil structural systems.
ACE OCP is a module of SCADA Pro, representing a generic real-world optimum design computing platform for civil structural systems. In order to be applicable in the everyday practice, it is implemented within an innovative computing framework, founded on the current state of the art of optimization. It covers all construction materials that CSI products support such as reinforced concrete, steel, aluminium etc.
ACE OCP is the result of over 20-years of Research and Development including practical experience in developing a general-purpose code for structural analysis and design optimization in the form of a modular standalone code
Co-developed by ACE-Hellas and the Institute of Structural Analysis and Antiseismic Research of NTUA.
ACE OCP is based on the next generation computational procedures and the implementation of such computing tools is expected to have a profound impact in optimized design of structural systems, leading to revolutionary changes in civil engineering design practice. Effectively, it makes value engineering available to every professional engineer.
ACE OCP plugin has been successfully implemented in a variety of real-world structural systems, leading to cost reduction of up to 30%. Among others it was used for optimizing the Beijing National Stadium (Bird’s Nest) and the Beijing National Aquatics Centre (Water Cube) where ACE OCP produced design improvements leading to a cost reduction of 10%. In other projects ACE OCP delivered improved designs to drive better structural performance while maintaining the same financial allocation.
