CYPE has been developing structure applications for more than 37 years. Software that carries out analysis of reinforced concrete and steel structures using stiffness matrix methods and calculating horizontal and vertical forces, wind and seismic shear.

CYPE is promoting the use of Open BIM technology which allows to be part of a collaborative workfl ow in an open and coordinate manner amongst all the technicians in the project team. Open BIM will also grant AEC industry the capability to manage the building during its entire life-cycle. 

CYPE has developed and is constantly improving the BIM cloud platform; a service to manage, update and share all the project files and interactions between users and applications.


Program that carries out the analysis and design of reinforced concrete and steel structures, subject to horizontal and vertical loads, for homes, buildings and civil work projects. Its use guarantees maximum analysis reliability and optimum drawing design.

The geometry of the structure can be introduced automatically. The user can personalise the design and edit the elements that have been introduced, with the on-screen support provided: numerous help options and error and warning texts. Provides very complete and precise construction drawings of the structure. CYPECAD is adapted to the latest national and international construction codes.

cype 3d

It is an agile and efficient program brought about to carry out the design of three dimensional structures composed of steel and timber bars, and their foundations, which includes pad footings, pile caps and strap and tie beams. Additionally, these can be redesigned and so obtain their maximum optimisation.

It has been adapted to national and international steel, timber, aluminium and concrete construction codes. The program carries out the analysis, design and check of the fire resistance of timber sections. Performs a seismic analysis of the structure (Modal Spectral Analysis) according to national and international codes. Second order effects (P-delta) are considered with wind and seismic loads.

Box culverts

Box Culverts is a program developed for the design and analysis of reinforced concrete box culverts used for underpasses, subways, and drainage works. They can be rectangular, trapezoidal or any type of polygon designed on screen, as well as being single cell or multiple cell elements.

The program can also design culverts made up of various aligned prestressed elements by defining the joints or those to be executed on site.

portal frame generator

Creates in a quick and simple manner the geometry and loads (dead load, live load, wind and snow loads) of frames made up of rigid nodes or trusses. Provides the user with the design of roof and lateral façade purlins, optimising their section and separation.

The wind and snow loads are calculated automatically, according to the selected code, the user only having to select the location of the structure.

Provides a job report containing the introduced data and the results obtained from the design.

Exports the frame to CYPE 3D with fixed or pinned supports, with the loads (corresponding to a central or end frame, or a generation of parallel 3D frames) and the buckling coefficients of the bars making up the frame taking into account whether it is a sway or non-sway frame.

When the job is exported to CYPE 3D, all the wind loads are exported: roof, lateral loads, and those perpendicular to the end walls. These loads are exported as surface loads, which greatly facilitates the data introduction in CYPE 3D; as in the case of the end wall frames, the user does not have to introduce line loads on the intermediate columns, only the columns need to be introduced and the program will distribute the surface load on all the bars of the end wall with a horizontal distribution direction.

Soil retention elements

Reinforced concrete cantilever walls. Program designed for the design and check of reinforced concrete cantilever soil retaining walls. Provides the automatic optimum design of the geometry, calculates the section reinforcement and carries out the geometric and reinforcement design of the foundation.

Embedded retaining walls. This has been developed for the design and check of generic embedded retaining walls composed of any material; reinforced concrete, reinforced concrete secant pile walls, mini pile screen and steel sheet piles. The program designs the reinforcement in the case of reinforced concrete walls. An assistant is available to help introduce the data for the most common cases of several basements levels in buildings. A simple assistant is also available for buildings with one or two basement levels.
