What is Your Civil/Structural Engineering Software Doing and How Can You Get it to Do More?

Webinar date:

Contact person: 

A big criticism of Civil/Structural design software is the lack of transparency in the checks these programs perform. Checks are "black boxes." Sure, you get a pass/fail result, but what does this really mean? What formulas or methods is the software using to derive the result? How can you verify the check?

And, what happens if your engineering judgment is different from what the software provides? Or, you need a check that your software doesn't support?

Join us to learn about a game changing, Open Check technology that is allowing engineers to:

  • See exactly what formulas and methods are being used to derive a check
  • Easily script custom checks to extend their 3D FEA workflow.
  • Consolidate the number of engineering programs that a firms has to use.

Attendees will receive a certificate of attendance from Nemetschek Scia that they can use to self-report PHD credit.
