Lunch and Learn Week with Advance Design

Lunch and Learn Week with Advance Design Banner

Advance Design is a mature and easy to use FEM Structural Analysis solution dedicated to structural engineers operating in a BIM environment. It fully designs any structure, with any kind of loads, mixing concrete, timber and steel members.

Join us for a week of short & sharp Advance Design tips and tricks to improve your productivity in all areas of Advance Design. The week will run from Monday 13th September to Friday 17th September, and each session will start at 12.00 pm and be approximately 40 minutes long.

MONDAY 13th September - 12.00 pm
BIM Workflows. Through the eyes of a Structural Engineer
BIM workflows are now the go-to solution for Structural Engineers, particularly when managing design changes on a day-to-day basis. One of the key challenges lies in maintaining quality and consistency during design and modelling changes. Our unique BIM link between Revit and Advance Design takes the term "challenge" out of this process and ensures that the BIM workflow is as smooth as possible. Join us on this Lunch & Learn webinar as we cover the following:

  • Exporting models from Revit to Advance Design and vice versa
  • Synchronising changes in models
  • Using analytical tools to detect model errors and repair them

TUESDAY 14th September - 12.00 pm
Advance Design. The full sketch by a Structural Engineer / A Structural Engineer's sketch
Looking for something easy to use which entirely designs any structure? Then you have come to the right place! With Advance Design, you can apply any loads, mixing concrete, steel and timber members. Join us on this Lunch 'n' Learn session where we take a look at an overview of the following:

  • BIM workflow between Advance Design & Revit
  • 3D climatic loads generation
  • FEM Results & Dynamic Views
  • Report generation
  • Steel design module
  • Concrete design module

WEDNESDAY 15th September - 12.00 pm
Construction stages. A Structural Engineer's design formula
Performing an FE analysis on the entire model may provide a quick set of results, but is it the right approach to designing a structure? Technically speaking, buildings are not constructed all in one go. It is rather the individual structural members that are combined in stages to form the complete building. A structure behaves differently at each stage, reacting to different loading scenarios and time-dependent material changes. It is, therefore, essential that we analyse our structure at each stage of construction before it reaches the final state. Join us on this Lunch 'n' Learn session as we focus on construction stages in Advance Design, where we will cover the following:

  • Subsystems for construction phases
  • Staged loading
  • Load combinations
  • Material settings for stages
  • Calculation by phases
  • FEM results

THURSDAY 16th September - 12.00 pm
RC design. A Structural Engineer's journey from analysis to detailing
Let Advance Design take care of your concrete projects, from concrete bridges to multi-storey concrete buildings, from beams to slabs! Advance Design is a high-end solution that integrates concrete analysis, Design and reinforcement detail! In this Lunch & Learn session, we look to Advance Design to do the following for us:

  • Concrete structure analysis and FEM results
  • Design and detail reinforced concrete
  • Generate reinforcement drawings and reports

FRIDAY 17th September -12.00 pm
Templates. A Structural Engineer's perspective on increasing productivity
Do you want to speed up your projects? Are you tired of reinventing the wheel when generating reports and defining element and design properties? Thanks to Advance Design, you can increase your productivity, so join us on this Lunch & Learn session where we will cover the following in Advance Design:

  • Fast and secure definition of element properties
  • Loading and saving design templates
  • Using several templates in the same model
  • Using design templates for steel design optimisation- Demo model
  • Using templates to generate reports instantly
  • Defining concrete reinforcement using design module templates
