CBFEM (Component-Based Finite Element Method) is the latest technology for the design of steel connections that has bridged a big gap between the standard Component method (adopted in design guidance such as the Eurocodes) and advanced Finite Element (FE) analysis.
When using the CBFEM, various components of a joint are modelled using FE. Besides the obvious advantages of the underlying FE methodology, like modelling of complex connection geometries and the application of multiple load combinations under equilibrium, a handful of other useful types of analyses become possible – such as buckling, stiffness, joint resistance and capacity.
This course aims to provide an overall understanding of the basic principles and rationale behind these analysis types. Practical application of these methods will be demonstrated through IDEA StatiCa software and various worked examples.
Costis Hatzopoulos is a Structural Engineer, graduated from A.U.Th. Polytechnic School of Engineering at 2001. Since then, he has been involved in over 100 structural engineering projects ranging from concrete buildings, monument restoration to industrial design and special structures. He is an expert in FEA analysis and seismic design with a broad knowledge of structural analysis software. He has also a big interest in programming languages, and particularly in the development of applications that support the structural design of structures. Costis has been working at IDEA StatiCa UK as the Technical manager since 2019.

This one-day, online course examines changes between BS 5950 and Eurocode 3. The emphasis is on buildings and the provision of general rules for buildings of EN 1993-1-1 and design of joints to EN 1993-1-8.
This course presents practical guidance on key aspects of preliminary scheme development and detailed scheme design in structural steelwork.
This course covers the theoretical background, technical aspects and Eurocode provisions for the analysis and design of flexible structures exposed to wind loads.
This two-day, online course extends the principles developed in the Understanding Structural Behaviour course. It covers more complex real structures and failures; and the important skills of approximate analysis for checking computer output and member sizing.
This two-day, online course shows engineers how to arrive at a qualitative solution to both create a structure and check computer results.
This advanced one-day, online course delivers key advice using worked examples on seismic design of structures to Eurocode 8, as well as the application of the Eurocode. Emphasis is placed on reinforced concrete buildings although the concepts are widely applicable.
