Staged Construction in S-FRAME AnalysisMay 29, 2020
9:00 am EDT (2:00pm BST)
S-FRAME
Structural Analysis & Design
REGISTER
Most analysis programs assume structures are built and in use without considering the critical phase in the design process – namely, the construction phase. Staged Construction allows the engineer to model, analyze, and design structural models in a sequence of construction/deconstruction stages.

Multi-scenario Analysis and Design and Staged Construction both provide a method for engineers to evaluate different structural modeling concepts within a single S-FRAME model, making alternative design comparisons easy.​ Join us to learn about understanding your structure’s behavior during and after structural changes occur. We will discuss the two methods 1. Staged Construction, ​and 2. Multi-scenario Analysis & Design​, and their benefits: ​

  • Evaluating a structure’s behaviour during and after construction
  • Comparing two similar but different structures in one S-FRAME file/analysis run (e.g., same structure with different sections assigned)
  • How to easily, and quickly code check, design and detail complete steel and concrete buildings within the staged construction environment

This 45-minute presentation will be followed by a Q+A session.

Using S-FRAME's NBCC 2015 Seismic Design Examples guideJune 5, 2020
10:00 am Pacific Time
NBCC 2015 Seismic Design REGISTER
This presentation explains how you can use S-FRAME to run static and dynamic analysis according to NBCC 2015 provisions, benefit from S-FRAME’s automatic design process and improve your working efficiency. Our examples focus on a low-rise structure with rigid diaphragms, exposed to seismic loading, and evaluate the different Seismic Force Resisting Systems. Topics include:

  • Structure description and site details for our example models.
  • Static and dynamic analysis processes, applying code-required ESFP and RSA respectively.
  • Use of braced frame for our seismic force resisting system.
  • Use of moment-resisting frame for our seismic force resisting system.
  • Use of shear wall for seismic force resisting system

This 45-minute presentation will be followed by a Q+A session.

Structural analysis for complex systems
ON DEMAND
A new feature has been added in S-FRAME with which numerical elements from different software or experimental specimens can be integrated into S-FRAME model using the UT-SIM framework (www.ut-sim.ca), developed at the University of Toronto. This feature allows studies on system level assessment considering the interaction between the system which is modelled in S-FRAME and detailed nonlinear elements modelled in other software or in a testing facility. This webinar includes the following topics :

  • Introduction to multi-platform hybrid simulation using the UT-SIM framework
  • Example of a hybrid simulation
  • Example of multi-platform simulation
  • How to perform multi-platform hybrid simulation with S-FRAME

Presenter: Professor Oh-Sung Kwon, Associate Professor of Structural Engineering at the University of Toronto.
