LUSAS for Structural and Bridge Applications Training Course (Scandinavia)

Copenhagen, Denmark, 24-25 June 2014

LUSAS is pleased to announce that a LUSAS for Structural and Bridge Applications Introduction and Advanced Course is being  held in Copenhagen from 24-25 June 2014. 


LUSAS for Structural and Bridge Applications (Introduction Day)
24 June 2014

This training day is for engineers with little or no prior knowledge of LUSAS or for those wanting to refresh their knowledge of carrying out linear static and linear buckling analysis for structural and bridge applications. The course covers getting started with LUSAS and then proceeds to cover in detail the modelling and analysis options available for creating beam models, modelling flat slabs and composite construction.

Day 1: Introduction to structural and bridge application modelling with LUSAS

With a focus on the new facilities and features in the newly released Version 15 of LUSAS, the topics covered will include:

  • About LUSAS: finite element analysis, geometry, attributes, the LUSAS treeview, section property calculators, viewing results, documentation, sources of help
  • Getting more out of beam models :tapering sections, discrete loads and moving loads, temperature effects, settlement of supports, enveloping and smart combinations, report writer, obtaining natural frequencies
  • Plate/shell modelling: construction options/ classification, analysis options, isotropic slabs, plate models, grillage analogy, orthotropic slabs, multicellular slabs, shear key / box beam,
  • Beam and slab construction: construction options/ classification, analysis options, mixing elements, ordinary beams with top slab, box beams with top slab
  • Bridge loading: principles and use of the vehicle load optimisation facility, wheel loads
  • Workshop and tutor-led examples 

To attend this Introduction day of the training course costs 400 Euros and requires you to register in advance to reserve your place. 

 
LUSAS for Structural and Bridge Applications (Advanced Day)
25 June 2014

This training day is for engineers with prior knowledge and use of LUSAS wanting to extend their knowledge by carrying out more advanced modelling for structural and bridge applications.

Day 2 : Advanced structural and bridge application modelling with LUSAS

With a focus on the new facilities and features in the newly released Version 15 of LUSAS, the topics covered will include:

  • Dynamics analysis: linear dynamics, modal dynamics facilities in LUSAS, transient dynamics, step-by-step analysis of structures, understanding why traditional analytical modal dynamics will not work for some structures.
  • Nonlinear analysis: advanced analysis control, geometric nonlinear analysis, nonlinear materials, plate girder buckling
  • Staged construction modelling: techniques available for complex bridge construction
  • Soil structure interaction modelling: techniques available
  • Workshop and tutor-led examples 

To attend this Advanced day of the training course costs 400 Euros and requires you to register in advance to reserve your place. 

 
LUSAS for Structural and Bridge Applications (Introduction and Advanced days) 
 24-25 June 2014

To attend both the Introduction and Advanced days of the training course a discounted price of 700 Euros applies and requires you to register in advance to reserve your place.
