Project description:
Jean Bouin Stadium is a 20 000 seats stadium home of the Stade Français rugby team.

For a project as big and complex as the Jean Bouin Stadium, with interfaces between different materials and numerous load cases, a global 3D finite element-model almost becomes essential for coping with time restraints and optimization. Advance Design has established itself as an ergonomic and reliable tool from the modeling to the results post-processing step.” - Mr Laurent Mahé, Ingénieur Génie Civil – CTE Strasbourg
