STRAAM Group’s approach to services for Engineering Structures involves the concept that all structures can be treated as a system designed to perform its intended function. The mathematics of system theory makes the characteristics of a structure describable with the use of a few parameters that are actually a global description that includes the conventional design approach, but extends understanding from purely quantitative to qualitative appreciation as well.

The description of a structure by the use of its dynamic response parameters (frequencies of resonance, stiffness, damping, response per unit force and modal displacement shapes), for a group of modes of behavior defines the global performance of that structure, including a description of its capacity/demand ratio, how it dissipates energy and where deviations from the design philosophy occur.
