Technical Training
Course: Advanced Analysis Functions

Course Overview
• Springs, restraints, inclined supports, coordinate systems, element eccentricities, special sections (variable inertia, custom, bars and trusses, plates and shells, cable), wind loads and wind profiles on members, thermal loads, calculation of cg loads, refinement of advanced geometry generation functions, arrows, recalculate, quick introduction to finite elements (plate elements, mesh contours, integration lines, iso-contours), analyzes and conventions, examples.

• P-Delta analysis: calculation method, destabilizing force, convergence and instability.

• Geometric non-linear analysis: theory, disruption of geometry, convergence and instability.

• Buckling analysis: theory, Euler’s load, comparison with non-linear analysis.

• Frequency analysis (overview): theory, definition of weights and masses, consistent and diagonalized mass matrix, participating mass.
