Dynamics for Structural Engineers is offered at most, twice per year. It is a good precursor for the
Seismic Analysis in S-FRAME training class.
Who Should Attend
Civil or Structural Engineers who want to increase their dynamic analysis knowledge and skill set, including how to apply it in their daily engineering work.
A strong foundation in structural dynamics
A clear understanding of modeling and solution best practices for the various types of dynamic analysis available in S-FRAME
The ability to run and interpret results from a dynamic analysis on industrial applications and buildings of varying complexity
Certificate of mastery provided to attendees that achieve a final score above 75% and Educational Units applied towards the completion of S-FRAME certification.
Professional Development Hours
Single and Multi Degree-of-Freedom Systems
Free Vibration – Natural Frequencies, Mode Shapes
Forced Vibration – Transient, Steady-State
Response Spectrum Analysis
Support Motion, Rotating Unbalance, Vibration Isolation, and other applications
Vibration Measuring Instruments
Human Exposure to Vibration
Overview of Numerical Methods used in Dynamic Analysis
Second Order Effects
Numerous solved example problems will be provided and discussed
Training is delivered in three live 3-hour lectures delivered over a period of 5 days.
Class includes graded Assignments and Final exam (you will receive a score report for your records)
A strong desire to learn and some prior experience with using FEA or frame analysis software programs.
It is not essential for students to have specific experience with S-FRAME Analysis, dynamic analysis, or the theory of dynamics. Due to the comprehensive nature of this course, however, an increased focus is placed on assignments and the exam for which students should expect to invest a substantial amount of time.
