Could I get feedback on my open-source Civil Engineering software?

Hi all, I've been developing some open-source software for geotechnical/structural analysis.

Could I get some feedback from you awesome Engineers on it? How can I improve it for you?

It's all free to use and we have a community of around 30 Engineers from around the world who are working on different tools and calculators and improving the platform.

Let me know if you'd like to get involved! Here is the link:

The project is called Civils.ai :)

Sure thing, sorry about that. I wasn't sure which forum was best suited for the post so I posted it in the most relevant I could find. It won't happen again! It's something I'm giving away genuinely for free so I don't want to be associated with that kind of behaviour :P

RE: Could I get feedback on my open-source Civil Engineering software?

II may be wrong but I think they kind of look the other way if its nonprofit, or no cost to the engineer users. Seen that before here sometimes.

A black swan to a turkey is a white swan to the butcher ... and to Boeing.

This forum's rules belong in 1992 lol.

It looks interesting. I've long thought of something similar but the market for it is so small that it's hard to do anything except an open source effort.

Have you thought about trying to replicate the basic features of software like CPETIT? The core of the software is incredibly straightforward - basically just a fancy spreadsheet. I think there are some free python modules available that do at least the basics of CPT interpretation.

Oh thanks for the advice, I will check out CPETIT :) I think I will need to ask a Geotech some questions to understand the correlation between CPT and SBT as my Geo interpretation isn't so strong!

What makes you say the market is so small? Surely there's hundreds of thousands if not millions of Engineers around the world who need to perform those calculations? Or are you thinking that they already have some favoured calculators/analysis and don't need any new platforms?

Looks awesome!

You should add some applications for water, lots of people looking for some help with H20.

Thank you! I do want to add some applications for water but I don't have much experience or references in that domain. Do you have any spreadsheets or examples which you'd be okay to share which I could follow?
