Civil Engineering Software Database

CESDb is a website founded by engineers for engineers. Our mission is to provide a software library where engineers, researchers and academics can easily access free or shareware civil engineering software. We are currently listing 402 programs under 12 categories with descriptions, screenshots and manuals if available. We always try to keep the site up-to-date and new software titles added regularly.
