Since 1983, the GT STRUDL Quality Assurance and Quality Control (QA/QC) program and procedures have been some of the industry’s most rigorous. They are in full compliance with applicable provisions of the U.S. NRC’s 10CFR21 and 10CFR50 Appendix B regulations. In addition, GT STRUDL QA procedures are in full conformance to the ASME NQA-1-2008, including the 2009 Addenda Subpart 2.7 (NQA-1a-2009).
Comprehensive QA/QC Program
The QA/QC program and procedures are routinely audited by independent auditors from nuclear industry corporate licensees several times each year. Auditors representing the Nuclear Procurement Issues Committee (NUPIC) and the Nuclear Industry Assessment Committee (NIAC) conduct audits every three years. Each new version of GT STRUDL is thoroughly validated and verified (V&V) for its computational quality and performance with approximately 5,000 V&V test problems.
The combination of GT STRUDL's QA/QC procedures along with its advanced linear and nonlinear analysis capabilities, computational speed, steel and reinforced concrete design, extensive collection of comprehensive detailed user documentation, and technical support services makes GT STRUDL ideal for use in the worldwide process, power, marine other general structural engineering industries.
