By the end of the class, attendees will understand how to use S-FRAME Analysis to accurately account for geometric imperfections and nonlinearity in their analysis model. They will understand how to verify the suitability of assigned Steel Sections using the tools in S-FRAME’s Integrated Steel Design (ISD). Also, and if required, be able to perform a manual, or automated design according to user defined constraints and document the steel design in a detailed Engineering Report.
The class lectures are delivered in two live 2-hour sessions delivered over a 3 day period
Includes graded Assignments and Final exam (you will receive a score report for your records)
Certificate of mastery will be provided to attendees that achieve a final score above 75% and Educational Units will go towards an S-FRAME certification
