SDTools is an independent and privately owned software development company that provides off the shelf scientific libraries called from the MATLAB environment and consulting services to implement custom applications using these libraries.

SDTools was formed in 2001 by Etienne Balmes to transform the original academic Structural Dynamics Toolbox, sold by Scientific Software Group (now The MathWorks, France) since 1995, to a fully professional product. From 2001 to 2008 SDTools collaborated with the MSSMat Laboratory of Ecole Centrale Paris, where Etienne Balmes headed the Vibration research group. Starting september 2008, SDTools is now hosted by the PIMM laboratory at ENSAM Paris. Current PhD theses are funded by PSA, SAFRAN and SNCF.

In 2002 SDTools partnered with INRIA to combine efforts in the development of a general purpose multi-physics finite element library OpenFEM. This joint effort greatly augments the number of people involved in developing FEM capabilities distributed with SDTools products.
