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.

Dynamics for Structural Engineers Dec. 2-610:00 am - 1:00 pm
Pacific Time

Dynamics for Structural Engineers (A301)

Dynamics for Structural Engineers is designed to deliver an in-depth introduction to dynamics with an emphasis on vibrations and the dynamic analysis of structures. Topics covered include free and forced vibrations, damping, resonance, response spectrum analysis, time history analysis, ground-motion response, vibration isolation, and many other topics relevant to structural engineers working in industrial as well as commercial building industries. Discussions on finite element modeling techniques, expected accuracy, and pitfalls are the focus of many of the practical examples we demonstrate using S-FRAME Analysis. Successful completion of this class will provide a strong foundation in structural dynamics including how to run and interpret different dynamic analysis on structural models of varying complexities and applications.

Seismic Analysis and Design in S-FRAME (A501)

Learn how to perform seismic analysis and design in S-FRAME. Using theory and numerous examples, this course presents an in-depth explanation of how to perform seismic investigations on your structures. Discussions on the merits of different analysis methods, their relationship to seismic design codes and their expected accuracy or pitfalls are the focus of the many practical examples demonstrated in this course. Topics include earthquake engineering, response spectrum analysis, equivalent static force procedures, rigid and semi-rigid diaphragms, time history analysis, material plasticity, damping, performance-based design, pushover, and quasi-static analysis and more.
