By the end of the class, attendees will understand how to use S-FRAME Analysis to accurately account for geometric imperfections and second-order behaviour in their analysis model. They will understand how to verify the suitability of assigned steel sections and if needed, perform either a manual or automated design according to user-defined constraints. Lastly, users will know how to generate their steel design document in a detailed Engineering Report.
The class lectures are delivered in two live 2-hour sessions delivered over three days.
Includes graded Assignments and Final exam (you will receive a score report for your records)
Attendees receive a certificate of mastery provided they achieve a final score above 75%
