Who Should Attend
Civil or Structural Engineers who want to improve their seismic analysis knowledge and skill set, including how to apply it in their daily engineering work with industrial applications or buildings.
Benefits - Attendees will gain
A strong foundation in seismic analysis and design
An understanding for the theory behind seismic analysis, and how those principles can be applied to your S-FRAME analysis
The skills to effectively employ advanced structural concepts to study a structure’s performance under earthquake loading
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
It is recommended that students have a working knowledge of basic S-FRAME usage, as foundational topics will not be covered due to time constraints. Due to the comprehensive nature of this course, an increased focus is placed on assignments and the exam.
A strong background and experience in Structural Analysis using S-FRAME. Dynamics for Structural Engineers (A301) course completion is highly recommended.
