LUSAS Webinar Recordings

The duration of the full-length webinar recordings on this page is stated in minutes and seconds after the title. Note that whilst metric or imperial sets of units may be used in these presentations according to the region for which they were initially intended, analysis with any consistent set of units is generally permitted in LUSAS. Video controls are provided at the bottom of each video during playback.

Automation and Customisation with LUSAS (49:33)

  • Describes how all operations carried out in the LUSAS interface can be controlled by a range of programming languages. You can create code directly or use LUSAS to create VB scripts through the recording of interface operations (macro record). These operations can also be called by external applications through the LUSAS Programmable Interface (LPI). This means that you can view and edit a recorded session, parameterise those commands, turn them into sub-routines, add loops and other functions to the scripts and create your own utilities, or even create a totally different application or program - using the proven core technology of LUSAS.. (Version 15.2) 


Footbridge Dynamics with LUSAS (37:23)

  • Shows a summary of the modelling and analysis techniques involved in the real-time modelling in LUSAS of a steel arch pedestrian bridge. An overview of eigenvalue and Interactive Modal Dynamics techniques is explained prior to showing the procedures required to progess from a linear static model and carry out an eigenvalue analysis and subsequent pedestrian loading assessment and response analysis to the Eurocode. (Version 15.2)

  • A more detailed video related to damping parameters, setting of transient time-step controls, graphing of peak accelerations to compare to Eurocode recommendations for this footbridge model can be viewed from the LUSAS Video index page.


Rail bridge assessment using LUSAS with relevant guidance (43:59)

  • Describes the key considerations in the modelling of a U-frame rail bridge when the purpose is to obtain improved buckling resistance as compared to Code Of Practice rules. It explains why such advantages may exist and shows, in real time, the ease and speed with which such a model can be created and analysed using LUSAS, with references to Network Rail's Guidance Note NR/GM/CIV/025 and BS5400-3:2000. The use of elastic critical (eigen) buckling analysis and nonlinear modelling techniques are also discussed. (Version 15.2)


LUSAS Steel and Composite Deck Design to EC4 webinar (41:56)

  • Highlights the steps involved and benefits obtained in using the LUSAS Steel and Composite Deck Design software option, which carries out comprehensive calculations and design checks to EC4. The presentation sessions cover: defining section geometry, LUSAS modelling, and viewing results and generating full reports. (Version 15.1)


LUSAS Version 15.1 Update webinar (49:39)

  • Shows how selected new facilities and improvements in the LUSAS Version 15.1 could be of great benefit to you in your organisation. In addition to highlighting the main new functionality in version 15.1 the webinar includes three short LUSAS presentation sessions covering: results extraction and reporting, staged construction improvements, and ease-of-use improvements. (Version 15.1)
