Structural Modelling: Behavior and Modelling of Different Lateral Load Structural Systems
After participating in this course you will be able to:
- Recognize different types of structural system used to provide lateral resistance for buildings
- Identify suitable lateral load structural system for each building
- Understand the behavior of different lateral load structural systems
- Understand the finite element modelling of different structural components
This webinar covers an introduction to the behavior of different lateral load structural resisting systems under lateral loads. As well, this webinar discusses the different methods to develop finite element models that accurately simulates the behavior of different lateral load structural system.
Note: It is strongly recommended that you take all four webinars to gain a full understanding of Structural Modelling High-rise and Industrial Buildings
Sophisticated three-dimensional modelling, that truly simulates different types of buildings, requires engineers to understand the complex behavior of different lateral load structural systems and structural modelling using basic knowledge of Finite Element Method. This webinar series provides an opportunity to learn the principles and techniques of structural modelling of different types of structures under lateral loads such as wind and seismic. The concepts and theories are explained thoroughly with conceptual examples, with no full numerical example due to the time restrain.
