JKP Static Ltd. is an engineering company that specializes in the design, laboratory testing and research of concrete materials and structures.
JKP is highly experienced in finite element modelling of concrete structures in special design circumstances, like earthquake and fire, taking into account the specific properties of concrete, such as hardening of young concrete, shrinkage and creep. With the help of advanced finite element software and our developed material models the real behaviour of the structure could be modelled, such as crack propagation, crack width, deflection, stress analysis etc. Special types of concrete or reinforcement, such as Fiber Reinforced Concrete (FRC) or Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP) rebars could also be modelled.
In special cases the necessary data for a calculation could be evaluated by performing laboratory tests. Thanks to our partnership with the Technical University of Budapest these tests could be realized. In some situations these tests are non-standard in order to provide information not available through standard approaches. Structures with high priority could also be tested in real scale.
At the same time, JKP is a research company in the area of plain and reinforced concrete materials and structures. Over the past 10 years several technical papers have been published about our researches, experiences and special designs. The managing director of the company, Peter Karoly Juhasz, is an assistant lecturer at the Technical University of Budapest and the head of laboratory of the Department of Strength and Materials.
