This course aims to introduce the participant to advanced types of analysis for steel connections available in the context of CBFEM, such as buckling, stiffness, joint resistance, capacity (seismic design) and fatigue. You will see practical applications of these methods through IDEA StatiCa software and various worked examples.

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

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.
