Half-Day Introduction to Advance Design

Half Day Induction to Advance Design

Do you design steel and concrete structures? Then take a deep dive with us into the state-of-the-art technology and features of Advance Design. Sail through the process of Modelling to design and analysis. With Advance Design, it cannot be any simpler!

This half-day workshop will provide an overview of the ins and outs of Advance Design. The beginning of the session will focus on a steel structure. During the latter part, we will go into depth with the capabilities for concrete. During the session, we will cover the following topics:

  1. Modelling
  2. Advanced FEM Features
  3. Analysis
  4. FEM Results
  5. Reports
  6. Steel Design Results
  7. Steel Design Module – Standard Connections
  8. Advance Design Connection – Non-Standard Connections
  9. Concrete Design Results
  10. Concrete Design Module

There we are, steps to boost your productivity and design almost any type of structure, whether in concrete or steel!
