Krabbenhøft & Ingolfsson offers the complete range of services related to the engineering design of steel structures including commercial, residential or industrial buildings and power plants. We have participated in numerous steel design projects ranging from steel detailing of traditional portal frame buildings to Finite Element based structural design, fatigue assessment or design of dampers to mitigate vibrations. Our engineering team has an in-depth knowledge of relevant codes of practice for design, fabrication and execution of steel structures, whether it is Eurocode, AISC or IBC. We proactively use this knowledge to ensure that our design is economically rational, simple to fabricate and safe to erect. This approach to design makes Krabbenhøft & Ingolfsson a competent and efficient as well as innovative partner in steel design projects.

In short our services include:

  • Preliminary design for tender (quantity estimation)
  • Member design and detailing (detail design)
  • 3D modelling in Tekla or Solid Works
  • Creation of workshop drawings
  • Expert knowledge in Eurocode (including EN 1993, EN 1090)
  • Design to other modern international standards (AISC, IBC, DNV, NORSOK)
  • Fabrication supervision and quality assurance
  • FE-based design and analysis of structural details
  • Design and supply of cast structural elements (including Steel and SG-Iron)
  • Stability analysis of thin-walled and slender structures
  • Non-linear FE analysis (including elasto-plasticity, large displacement analysis and contact)
  • Fatigue assessment and life-time assessment of steel structures
  • Linear and non-linear dynamic analysis
  • Seismic design
  • Design development and supply of vibration mitigation mechanisms
