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 two-day, online course introduces seismic design of civil engineering structures. It builds on the basics of structural dynamics and engineering seismology. The course focusses on seismic loading and design codes, conceptual seismic design principles and analysis for seismic loading, and design and detailing of structural members.
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.
Changing the way we build is key, if we are to create resource-efficient buildings. Join us for this webinar, sponsored by Farrat, as we discuss how to achieve high-performance specifications for structure-borne noise and thermal bridging with minimum mass and materials.
This course presents practical guidance on key aspects of preliminary scheme development and detailed scheme design in structural steelwork.
This 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 covers the theoretical background, technical aspects and Eurocode provisions for the analysis and design of flexible structures exposed to wind loads.
This course introduces EN 1991-1-4 for determining wind actions on structures. It outlines the basic principles behind the code and covers each step of the procedure for calculating the wind loads on structures. Attention is given to important features introduced by the UK NA.
Develop powerful tools for leading and influencing the people you work with. This practical course, delivered as 5 three-hour workshops across 10 weeks, aims to develop awareness about yourself and your impact on others, helping you to share your expertise and influence the direction of a project.
This course provides a theoretical framework for rapid problem solving concept calculations
