ASDIP offers an excellent suite of structural engineering software modules for a price individuals and small businesses can actually afford.

William L. Polhemus, Jr. PE
Houston, Texas

I’ve used Mr Encinas’ software for designing composite steel beams, and found it easy to use, surprisingly flexible (for a “fill in the blanks” interface), and best of all, largely self documenting. I’m an engineer who always struggles with documenting calculations owing to time constraints. Being able to print out a nicely-formatted output that reflects a classic hand-calculation approach is a boon. I highly recommend this product.

Regards, and thanks for a great software and the superlative customer support!

Ray Crossan, PE
Glenmoore, Pennsylvania

We have been working with the ASDIP software suite for a few months and have found it to be a valuable tool in design of our structural elements.  The platform is user-friendly and there are immediate results when running the analysis.  It has helped to cut our analysis time in half.  We are a small but growing firm.  The value we get from the ASDIP platform far exceeds the cost of the programs.

Travis Rodriguez, PE
Simi Valley, California

I was using Enercalc’s retaining wall module for wall design. It was cumbersome and glitchy. I needed a change and found ASDIP retaining wall software and was immediately impressed. The interface is clean and easy to use. The input options are located in logical tabs and provide me with all of the options that I need. I had one issue using the program due to my computer missing a windows install file, and Javier quickly helped me solve this. The install file was not related to the ASDIP software. Great software and Support!!

Bruce W. Mahoney, PE
South Park, Pennsylvania

I Love how you investigate features in the Steel Program that I have suggested. The latest feature of adding the 0.8 stiffness factor for the Direct Design method works great. Your Software really is First Class and you provide First Class Support.

Juan C. Lopez, PE
Nutley, New Jersey

I’ve been using SAP2000 for a while to design continuous concrete beams, but have never been happy with all the work it takes to produce a decent easy to read report (specially for old-fashion town engineers). The reports that ASDIP Concrete generates couldn’t be any better. It shows all the math, equations, code references, load combinations, and, what I like the most is the reinforcement detailing. I only got the ASDIP Concrete module and now I’m considering buying the rest.

Robert Cutcher, PE
Jupiter, Florida

The ASDIP structural engineering program suites are intuitive and well thought out software products.  I routinely use the steel, concrete and retaining suites in the design of coastal structures. The presentation, graphics and data input interactive are straightforward and logically presented.  Regular updates are provided which address comments from users and continually improve the scope and application of the software.  Customer support is excellent and the value of the product relative to the cost of the software is one of the best I have come across in the engineering software field.  The author also provides design approach blogs on a regular basis which demonstrates his commitment to the product and his clientele.  I highly recommend ASDIP software to other structural engineers.

Clyde McMorrow, AIA
San Jose, California

We use it as an architectural tool, allowing us to model design concepts ahead of the structural engineers, who we find very conservative and unexcited about new design concepts. ASDIP allows us to say “Of course it is going to work, see”. Generally, our structural folks use an older tool but they have all been impressed by ASDIP and the clear reports. Your customer service is without equal and has certainly made my job easier.

Felipe Gallegos, MSE
San Salvador, El Salvador

I like the output because is SUPER well explained, easy to follow and the software does what I don’t have time to do, an excellent calculation report. Also, the software is very stable. I love MKS units included, makes me feel like fish in water.

Will Braswell, PE
Orlando, Florida

Love your retaining wall program and its ability to switch between US and Metric units so easily. I returned my Retain Pro software after realizing that ASDIP Retain is much better. Love your GUI.

Roland Heimisch, PE
Seattle, Washington

I am really glad I purchased this software package. The data input is intuitive and therefore easy to do. The condensed output provides just the right amount of data, while the full reports show all the details, should they be required. I only have used ASDIP for a few days, but it already saved me enough time to justify the investment.

George Mikhael, PE
Laval, QC, Canada

I am very impressed by your outstanding software. Easy to use reliable, and comprehensive. It is very safe software. No guessing. Not complicated. I am very satisfied from the efficiency & neatness of the output. Thank you.

Eng. Ma’en Derar (General Manager)
Shj, United Arab Emirates

I’d like to thank you for great services you are doing, you have a professional and simple software which can solve problem which exact and clear procedures. No body in my projects can say its wrong or not clear, because you are showing even the clause number from Code.
All structural designers facing problems if they design a base plate with high moment values, other commercial anchors software’s will never have a solution to solve the issues resulting from high reactions and moment values, but your software solve it out.
Great efforts, keep developing… Hope you will include BS 5950 in your next update! Hats off.

Sabrina Urbano, PE

I was searching for a user-friendly retaining wall software that would allow me to input parameters and receive a well organized, easy to read output that can be followed and easily explained. In ASDIP Retain I was able to use the software immediately and get results in record time. I am eager to try out their other modules. As an added bonus, the customer service was extremely prompt and helpful. To the ASDIP team I say, thank you and kudos!

Paolo M. Trevisan, PE
Ontario, Canada

I have been using ASDIP products (steel, retaining wall, and foundation) for a little over 1 year, and I must say I am overly impressed!
Software is intuitive and extremely EASY to use and learn. I have used it for design and submitted the brief report to the sealing engineer, and not one comment was issued.
Fantastic software and would recommend it to all practicing engineers out there. Keep up the great work!

Howard Velasquez, M.ASCE

Aloha Javier,
I am not an engineer but need to be able to do basic calculations for my designs. After looking at many platforms I chose yours because of its simple input and awesome output! I will add all other modules as the need arises.


Harriet Markis, PE, SECB
Bronx, New York

Easy to use with reliable results, the software suite I purchased has proven to be extremely useful in my practice. I am impressed with ASDIP’s updates and customer service.

Yuri Yurianto, SE, PE, M.Sc
Plano, Texas

I was looking for design tools to speed up my calculations process.  Most of them are too complicated to use and rather expensive.  In my search, I came across ASDIP software and decided to download the 15 days trial.  The software installation is clean and straightforward, which is a big plus already.  After tried it for a week, I got convinced then I bought the ASDIP Suite. I am very happy with my purchase.  I use it every time, especially for foundation design.  Customer service is prompt and professional.

Waleed Alneef
Rumah, Saudi Arabia

I used ASDIP RETAIN in a project where I was designing a Variable Height Retaining Wall and I am considering to purchase the entire software. The software worked great. It’s user friendly, easy to use, with adequate and sorted results, detailed report of the results, and a very professional support team.

Sabrina Urbano, PE
Trinidad and Tobago

I had been having some challenges with my computer due to some registry issues and i had a pressing deadline approaching regarding a retaining wall design for a client. I contacted Javier multiple times in an effort to figure out why the program was not launching on my computer as before. He was patient, kind and calm as he communicated with me late into the night & throughout the next day until the problem was resolved. I can say with confidence that not only Javier is knowledgeable technically, but he has a very pleasant demeanor as he offered prompt service to suit my needs.

Isaac Salazar Moreno, M.Sc
Ciudad de Panamá

This structural design software is definitely a suite of very useful and practical tools for the design of concrete and steel elements. I have been able to use these tools and check the results with many hand calculations and spreadsheets. The results are simply fantastic. I’m currently working with the ASDIP software in some of our engineering projects, and I’m satisfied with the quick and reliable results.

Adam Urbanek, PE, SE
Chicago, Illinois

I have been using ASDIP RETAIN on a number of projects with a great deal of satisfaction on the input and output of the software.  The input fields are intuitive and provide immediate consequence on the results, graphs, diagrams, etc.  This makes the iterative design very transparent as various input combinations can be evaluated for their effect on the results.  ASDIP RETAIN is the only software that incorporates pile supported retaining walls in the same module that I am aware.  The most valuable aspect of ASDIP is the technical support.  We’re all used to waiting months or even years before reported bugs are picked by one of the big names in the structural software industry.  Javier Encinas personally answers emails and is able to address any errors or even suggestions to the input in a matter of days.  The pricing is very competitive.  I highly recommend this software, it will pay for itself on the first project you’ll use it on.

Lawrence Lewis, PE
Kendallville, Indiana

The software is incredibly straight forward and easy to use. Very detailed so that one is not scratching their head trying to figure out what the calculations are doing in reference to the AISC and ACI standards. I especially found the method options for design of column base plates and anchorage to concrete under ACI 318, along with the seismic provision option, to be very flexible in its scope of design. Also, the ASDIP blog posts on seismic design of anchor rods helped my understanding of application of the over-strength factor requirement in ACI 318 Chapter 17. The Structural Steel Design module of ASDIP Structural Software is a very capable design tool.

Richard B. Ewer, PE
League City, Texas

Quick, easy and thorough! This software is the most user-friendly engineering suite I’ve used. The input modules are very intuitive, and easy to follow and the comprehensive output with code references make verifying the output a snap.

Robert Cutcher, PE
Jupiter, Florida

I have been using each of the four structural engineering suites from ASDIP for several years now.   I find the software to be easy to use and extremely cost effective.    Data input and file management are both simple and intuitive.    Output results  are presented in easy to follow formats for calculations and graphics.  Reference criteria is show next to the equation as are the relative load combinations.    Overall, I find the ASDIP software to be among the best I’ve used for coastal structure design.

Shams Abbas Naqvi
Arlington, Texas

One of the best software in the market for footing design. I’m currently pursuing my MS in structural engineering at UTA and for most of the project, I have used this software. This software is user-friendly and detail-oriented which make the work efficient. I have also suggested this to my fellow students. Great work.

Jon Allen, PE
Salt Lake, Utah

I very much liked your Retaining Wall software. I designed a Counterfort Wall with a surcharge; and was able to complete the design in a short time. The input was friendly and progressed nicely through the design. I was able to do this after a short tutorial review by ASDIP and figuring out the software on my own. I reviewed the design results as I progressed and went back and revised design input as needed. Resulting Design calculations were easy to follow and well organized. I do highly recommend the ASDIP Structural Engineering Software.

David R. Cassara, PE
Rochester, New York

I have been using ASDIP software for some 3 years and consider the software to be most detailed, efficient, accurate and easy to use design software available for concrete and steel design and detailing. The integrated active graphic modules provide excellent visual design results for load combinations for shear and moments and graphical construction details. The condense and detailed reports provides the designer a most complete documentation of design calculations and code review, and is an excellent source when design calculation submittals are required. I am very satisfied with ASDIP software.

Ruel Paler
San Mateo, Rizal, Philippines

Your software is awesome! For me, it’s the best software especially ASDIP FOUNDATION. I’ve tried other software but ASDIP overcomes all of them. The detailed calculation on the output, the user-friendly GUI, ASDIP is the best.
