About structural analysis and design training classes

S-FRAME Software training classes are delivered in short, focused online sessions, making it convenient for the practicing engineer to attend without the need to travel.

Our training classes are designed so that participants not only learn but are also tested and certified, along with receiving Professional Development Hours for their efforts. Participants are provided with training materials, hands-on practice assignments, and an exam.

The curriculum has applicability for the practicing engineer, as well as new engineers and engineering students who increasingly find companies are looking for structural engineering modeling and simulation knowledge using S-FRAME Software products.

Steel Design and Optimization with S-STEEL (P201)

Steel Design and Optimization with S-STEEL (P201) is an introductory course for structural and civil engineers. Topics covered include how to define an accurate analysis model, execute a performance assessment on a steel structure, and how to optimize steel section choice to different user-defined criteria such as weight, availability, or cost.

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 for Structural EngienersJuly 8 - 1210:00 am - 12:00 noon


Knowing how to apply Finite Element Analysis (FEA) technology to the analysis and design process helps the structural engineer produce accurate results using more efficient models – a fundamental goal of any project’s success. The S-FRAME FEA Solver Engine, built into multiple analysis and design products, delivers continuously evolving FEA capabilities and Finite Element Analysis Applications is designed to help demystify using these capabilities

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 will learn how to run a linear static analysis and the fundamental conventions used to interpret their analysis results. Participants will also be introduced to S-VIEW, and shown the tools available for model validation and sharing in a dynamic model-viewing environment. This introductory course is geared towards engineers who are new to S-FRAME Analysis or structural analysis and design.

Advanced S-FRAME Analysis (G103) - Complex Modeling, Non-Linear Analysis, Meshing and BIM Links

Advanced S-FRAME Analysis (G103) builds on the fundamentals presented in G101 Introduction to S-FRAME Analysis, to cover additional advanced features and topics. We will explain complex geometry modeling, 2D analysis objects, and S-FRAME's powerful meshing tools. You will apply moving loads, and learn how and when to run different advanced analyses such as P-Delta, Non-Linear, and Vibration Analysis. This course also demonstrates S-FRAME's two-way BIM and DXF links. This course assumes engineers are familiar with the concepts covered in Introduction to S-FRAME Analysis G101 or have prior experience with the S-FRAME Analysis interface.
