Advanced Analysis in SCIA Engineer
Over the past few years, the AEC market has seen the complexity of project geometry increase, while at the same time having design code requirements trend towards requiring more robust types of analysis. Together, these factors make it essential for structural engineers to have an analysis program that can handle all aspects of a project. With SCIA Engineer, engineers can perform the type of analysis that corresponds to the unique complexities of the project: linear, nonlinear, stability, dynamic, soil interaction and seismic all in one program. This allows the engineer to be more efficient and accurate, while also limiting a firm’s investment to a single software.
Register to learn how SCIA Engineer can:
- Perform geometric nonlinear analysis using true cable elements in the 3D model
- Calculate critical buckling modes of 1D/2D members using stability analysis and include calculated buckling factors in steel code checks
- Utilize subsoil supports to investigate linear & nonlinear soil interaction in foundations and slabs
- Account for the plastic behavior of materials in order to understand non-standard steel connections as well as other conditions
Continuing Education Units: Attendees will receive a certificate in order to self-report PDH credit.
