Modelling and analysis of steel tanks and other cylindrical shells

Webinar date: 
Wed 27 March 2019 - 15:00 to 16:00 CET

Steel tanks for various liquids and loose material are typical examples of practical use of cylindrical shells. Modelling of such shapes and definition of loads specific for these structures can be done very effectively, taking full advantage of numerous SCIA Engineer’s capabilities.

Watch this webinar and you will learn how to:

  • create effectively a model of a cylindrical shell
  • define easily specific loads such as fill and wind
  • adjust the right finite element mesh size and local refinement
  • perform stability and general plastic analysis
  • design and optimise steel members
  • prepare a clear report including indented tables and images
  • create a template for similar future projects
