Learn about the benefits of performing a higher-order Finite Element Analyses. Participants will be able to assess a structure maximum load capacity, key deformations, buckling loads, learn to model and analyze more accurate models that include advanced
structural elements: cables, fabric, hooks, gaps, link beams, tension/compression-only members, nonlinear springs, plasticity, hysteretic behavior, and more. A large part of the course is dedicated to comparing results from different analysis
types, discussing the reasons behind the differences, drawing conclusions and making recommendations.
