Colin is a structural analysis application with a lightweight Interface.
It has been developed by civil engineering students at the university of Innsbruck as an unofficial project. The idea was to create an easy to use structural analysis software for students, in order to provide an easier way to learn the basics of civil engineering.
Some tutorials (in German) can be found on youtube.com: http://www.youtube.com/user/ognop42
Setups for Windows can be found in the download area: http://download.clazzes.org/colin/testing/
Packages for Ubuntu/Debian are available as well in our repository: http://deb.clazzes.org/
Our SVN repository: http://svn.clazzes.org/svn/colin/trunk/colin/
When launching from terminal you should add the parameter "-graphicssystem raster" since this paint engine is much more faster than the native X11 one.
We hope it will be useful and that we get some feedback to improve it.
