Our SIMONA® SmartTank structural analysis software offers you an exciting array of possibilities for calculating thermoplastic rectangular and cylindrical tanks. We are continuously enhancing our software so that you can look forward to innovative new program components and features that will enable you to maximise both cost-effectiveness and safety in the design of your tanks.

From program structure to the design of the user interface, the focus of SIMONA® SmartTank is always on user benefit.

Key benefits:

The program offers you:

  • Maximum cost-effectiveness in the design of tanks
  • The option to export parameters to external programs (e.g. CAD software)
  • Significant potential for cost savings thanks to realistic FEM formulation of circumferentially reinforced tanks and all the structural steel members, thus revolutionising the analysis of these components
  • Network-capable application and administration of the software
  • Centralised administration of all projects in a project manager
  • Simple, convenient user guidance
  • Plausibility check and validation of all inputs
  • High-quality, verifiable and graphically sophisticated outputs as well as complete printouts
  • Optimised service and support via hotline with ultra-fast response times


Our expertise continues to develop further – and SIMONA® SmartTank continues to grow. The program is being continuously optimised so it always reflects the state of the art. The fourth release of the SIMONA® SmartTank software offers you an extended catalogue of modules that will make your daily work in tank construction even more convenient by streamlining the tank analysis process.
