UNIPAC User Guide

Information on this page is intended to assist anyone using the Oasys Unipac Engineering Suite for research or teaching.

The contents of this page are:

  • Citation and use of Oasys Unipac Licenses in Research
  • Training in the Oasys Engineering Suite

Citation and the use of Oasys Unipac Licenses in Research

The Oasys Unipac License is provided to the institution at a significant discount and, consequently, Oasys would like to establish a relationship with the institutions based on collaboration and trust. If the software is used in research, it should be cited in any papers or presentations prepared by the student or researcher. This citation should be present in the text when discussing the analysis and in the bibliography (see example below)

Also, if the research has been published or presented, Oasys would be interested in working with Universities to publicise their work on our website, which give good exposure of the institutions work to industry. To this end, we would encourage students and researchers to contact us at oasys@arup.com once their research is complete.

Training in the Oasys Engineering Suite

Oasys are committed to supporting institutions with assisting in teaching and training of students and researchers. To this end, we have put manual, FAQ’s, tutorials, webinars and case studies together for each product which are freely available on the website. 

Directions of how to find these links are given below.

  1. Product pages
    These pages provide general information about the product and, on the right of the page in the support box, links to tutorials, FAQ’s and pdf manuals. Some manuals also contain step-by-step tutorials. Links to the most recent webinars related to the product are also given.
  2. Oasys YouTube Channel
    The channel contains all videos and tutorials produced by Oasys and is separated by subject areas to assist users.


  3. Case Studies
    It can be difficult to understand the application of analysis in industry. To assist in this area, Oasys have put a number of case studies together showing how the different products have been used. These have been separated by the type of analysis (e.g. bridge design or retaining wall design).
