Introduction to S-FRAME Analysis- Modeling, Linear Analysis and Post Processing

Learn how to create simple structures, apply load cases and load combinations, and run a linear static analysis using S-FRAME Analysis. This course introduces fundamental modeling features in the S-FRAME environment, including the grid and coordinate systems, the model organization system, geometry definition, and load definition tools. Participants learn how to run a linear static analysis and the fundamental conventions used to interpret their analysis results. Participants are also introduced to S-VIEW, and shown the tools available for model validation and sharing in a dynamic model-viewing environment. This introductory course is ideal for engineers new to S-FRAME Analysis, or structural analysis and design.

Advanced Steel Design with S-STEEL (P203)

This class is designed to broaden the structural and civil engineer's steel design expertise and understand of S-STEEL, Scratch Pad, and S-PAD design and optimization tools. We will explain how to design non-conventional members and sections including composite beams, double angle struts, custom sections, and others. Work more efficiently by configuring S-STEEL settings and exporting customized engineering documentation. This course also covers Scratch Pad, a built-in S-STEEL design tool, useful for performing additional design checks without the need to define an entire model.

Finite Element Analysis Applications (F201)

Learn how to define and mesh complex geometries in arbitrary 3D orientations how to correctly load them, understand the difference a high-quality mesh can make and how to quickly generate one using S-FRAME's powerful auto-meshers. Become more confident in matters relating to solution convergence and result validation using S-VIEW. Learn how to apply hydrostatic loading or soil pressure to structures, how to accurately connect members to shells, and how to use S-FRAME's wall integration lines to design reinforced concrete shear walls using S-CONCRETE.

Nonlinear and P-Delta FE Analysis

The Nonlinear and P-Delta FE Analysisclass is designed to help demystify higher-order Finite Element Analyses and to improve confidence when assessing a structure's performance, such as maximum load capacity and key deformations. Learn how to predict accurate buckling loads, differentiate between local and global buckling, and how to model and analyze more accurate models that include advanced structural elements such as cables, fabric, hooks, gaps, link beams, tension/compression-only members, nonlinear springs, plasticity, hysteretic behavior, and more. We dedicate a large part of the course to comparing results from different analysis types, discussing the reasons behind the differences, drawing conclusions, and making recommendations.

Foundation Analysis, Design, and Detailing with S-FOUNDATION (P601)

Foundation Analysis, Design and Detailing with S-FOUNDATION covers all topics required for the engineer to put S-FOUNDATION to use. We explain how to create foundation models: define pads, pedestals and piles, model various footing types, and import an S-FRAME Analysis superstructure model. Learn how to organize the foundation model with legends and folders, code-check the foundations using the rigid or flexible method, and generate design reports. We also cover how to use Toolbox Extensions to extend S-FOUNDATION's core functionality and include a brief introduction to creating and customizing Wizard scripts.

Concrete Design and Detailing with S-CONCRETE (P301)

This class is designed to broaden your concrete design and detailing expertise. Using S-CONCRETE, learn how to define, edit, load, design, and detail reinforced concrete sections for beams, columns, and walls according to the ACI, CSA, and EC2 standards. We also use S-LINE to define, analyze, design and detail continuous reinforced concrete beams. By examining the results generated from these concrete design solutions, the attendees have the opportunity to study some of the calculations that go into the design checks the software performs.
