Structural Modelling: Behavior and Modelling of Different Lateral Load Structural Systems

2 Professional Development Hours


This webinar is part of a four-part Web Series: Structural Modelling for Concrete High-Rise and Industrial Buildings. It is strongly recommended that you take all four webinars to understand the Structural Modelling of High-rise and Industrial Buildings.

The topics in this series include:

You can register for any of these courses or register for the series and save 20%.


After participating in this course, you will be able to:

  • Recognize different types of structural systems used to provide lateral resistance for concrete buildings
  • Identify suitable lateral load structural system for each building
  • Understand the behaviour of different lateral load structural systems
  • Understand the finite element modelling of various structural components

This webinar introduces the behaviour of different lateral load structural resisting systems under lateral loads. This webinar also discusses the different methods to develop finite element models that accurately simulate the behaviour of additional lateral load structural systems.

Sophisticated three-dimensional modelling, which truly simulates different types of buildings, requires engineers to understand the complex behaviour of different lateral load structural systems and structural modelling using basic knowledge of the Finite Element Method.

This webinar series provides an opportunity to learn the principles and techniques of structural modelling of different types of concrete 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 time restraints.

Course Outline :

  • Different types of structural systems are used to provide lateral resistance of different concrete structures
  • Analysis and modelling of frame structures under lateral loads
  • Analysis and modelling of shearwall structures considering torsional effects
  • Analysis and modelling of coupled shearwall buildings
  • Behaviour and modelling of wall-frame buildings

Who Should Attend:

  • Structural Engineers
  • Design Engineers
  • Engineering Consultants
  • Project Engineers
  • Contractors
  • City Engineers
