Webinar: Plasticity in steel plates and shells
One of the reasons why the steel material is popular is because it exhibits an elasto-plastic behavior that allows extra capacity – through plastic redistribution – when the yield stress is reached locally.
SCIA Engineer 15 now includes a new type of non-linear analysis that supports this behavior: general plasticity of steel plates and shells.
In this webinar by our Customer Service Engineer Dominique Pipers, will you will get:
- Background information about the mathematical model
- An overview of the various supported stress-strain laws
- Several examples to illustrate the impact
- Modelling tips to handle even connections with bolts and end-plates
