Structural Modelling: Industrial Buildings

2 Professional Development Hours


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

The topics in this series include:

You can register for any one 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 system used to provide lateral resistance for industrial buildings and low-rise steel buildings
  • Identify different approaches to calculate wind and seismic loads on industrial buildings
  • Understand the finite element modelling of different structural components

This webinar provides an introduction to the behavior of different lateral load structural resisting systems used for industrial and low-rise steel buildings. As well, this webinar discusses the different methods to develop finite element models that accurately simulates the behavior of different structural components of steel industrial buildings.

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.
