Structural engineeering tailored for your success

Every project is led by a firm Principal and staffed by an all-star team comprised of graduate engineers—that means every client gets the A-Team experience.

“We do not take our clients for granted. We understand and appreciate that their success is our success. We strive to deliver a higher level of service because our clients have entrusted us to make each project better than the last.” 

– Andy Tomiczek, Project Engineer

Trust our team with every facet of your project

Maybe you’ve been stretching project budgets to the limit, or you’re knee-deep in a complicated build. Bring it! Our team of engineers is not afraid to jump in with the technical expertise and an open mind—to deliver practical, sustainable and safe solutions to your toughest structural design problems.

BIM Technology Experts

We have the team and the technology to bring your vision to (virtual) life and ensure accuracy and quality in every analysis and design we deliver. Leverage our BIM capabilities to accurately model and phase each element of a complex build before construction begins, so you can make the safest, most efficient design decisions.

Our use of the latest modeling software and capabilities creates valuable time- and cost-savings for all clients—across every market and within every service type. Using the latest BIM tools and technology in ways outside of the norm is something Jezerinac Group excels at, providing greater design clarity to the project team and saving you from costly rework or unexpected headaches after construction is in flight.

Advanced Finite Element Modeling

TOOLS & TECHNOLOGY​

Jezerinac Group was contracted to provide the structural steel connection design required to support the themed rock work for the new roller coaster for a theme park. The rock work support structure is an intricate network of structural steel framing and bracing. The steel system is arranged in a varying, undulating layout such that the desired rock work geometry can be achieved. This results in numerous, custom connection geometry configurations and designs. 

The analysis and design of the connections and their complex geometry required understanding and utilizing advanced finite element modeling (FEM) software. Jezerinac Group used a European-based analysis and design software called IdeaStatica that measured the stress and strain within each element.

ANSI/ aISC 360

ANSI/AISC 360 leaves finite element modeling to engineering judgment. The use of a bilinear elastic-plastic material diagram for steel plates and limiting the plastic strain allows for the ability to solve all types of generally loaded connections. Using a plastic strain limit of 5% as stipulated in numerous verification studies, provided results that closely coincided with the approach suggested specifically by ANSI/AISC 360.

Industry-established engineering practices

Every staff member who touches our projects from a technical standpoint is a graduate engineer. Our engineers model, design, present and observe the construction process. This results in higher quality deliverables and improves project efficiency, especially as Building Information Modeling (BIM) and Software Interoperability become so integral to the engineer’s process.
