Mitek Industries, leading provider of floor and roofing systems, and PRE Technologies sign a contract for new product optimisation.

PRE gets the contract for FEA product optimisation for Mitek Industries

Starting February the 15th, 2016, PRE Technologies and the Mitek Industries agreed on a collaboration for the design and analysis of a new metal webbing for their Posi-joist product. The job specification included a full mechanical assessment of the structure, including timber beams, metal web connectors and supports, under the specified working conditions.

Full mechanical FE analysis will be required to obtain the expected response of the structure under a variety of operational and accidental loads. The wood will be correctly characterised and modelled in order to realistically capture its inherent anisotropy. 

Based in Dudley in the West Midlands, MiTek specialises in the development of software solutions for structural timber engineering and the provision of steel connector products for their floor and roofing systems in the UK and Europe. Further afield, MiTek is the leading provider of software solutions and supplier of building components throughout the Americas, Africa and Australasia.

PRE Technologies possess vast experience on stress and fatigue calculations for wood and composite structures, focusing our designs in correctly capturing the anisotropic mechanical properties of these materials.
