Founder and Chief Executive Officer Wouter van den Bos:

“I’m incredibly proud of our newest release, the first stand-alone version of SDC Verifier. This version incorporates numerous new standards and significant upgrades to fatigue analysis tools like hotspot stress and Rainflow Counting. A huge thank you to our development team! I invite all our customers to explore this powerful new release”

Chief Operation Officer at SDC Verifier, Oleg Ishchuk:

“SDC Verifier 2024 R1 had two paramount focuses: enhancing user experience through long-awaited features and code integrations and improving the functionality of our new independent software version. We achieved the first with the implementation of 5 new standards, refined Rainflow Counting, enhanced weld strength checks, and more. The second focus was realized by incorporating feedback from early adopters, resulting in improved visual appearance and optimized performance. I’m thrilled about the new level of quality and confidence we deliver to structural engineers with 2024 R1”

Head of Engineering at SDC Verifier, Roman Samchuk:

“I’m particularly excited about the integration of the latest plate buckling standards. Following the most up-to-date recommendations is crucial for new structural designs. Additionally, the 1D weld strength checks significantly streamline analysis for projects using simplified models, making it easier to evaluate weld integrity without the need for complex modeling. Finally, the inclusion of the Rainflow Counting method allows users to directly apply this powerful fatigue analysis technique. SDC Verifier 2024 R1 offers all of this alongside numerous smaller enhancements that will undoubtedly improve the user experience”

Development Team Lead at SDC Verifier, Bohdan Melnyk:

“Our development team is dedicated to the continuous evolution of SDC Verifier. This latest release demonstrates our focus on fixing bugs, integrating the latest standards, and enhancing core features to ensure structural engineers have the most powerful and accurate tools at their disposal”
