This webinar by BuildSoft will explain how to economize steel frame structures by using the real connection stiffness of joints and integrating semi-rigid connections in the global structure.

Almost all rigid considered connections are, in reality, semi-rigid connections. Semi-rigid joints have many recognized advantages, although they are rarely employed in actual constructions, mostly because the right design tools and modelling options are lacking.

This webinar introduces an easy design approach for working with semi-rigid joints.

The proposed solution allows to optimize not only the size of the structural profiles, but also the joint design, leading to an overall more economical design. The webinar will also consider how the proposed solution fits within Eurocode 3 standards.

The webinar will touch upon the following topics:

  • Differences between rigid connections, pinned connection and semi-rigid connections

  • Synchronizing a complete 3D Steel Frame Revit model with Diamonds, using BIM Expert

  • Standard Design and integration of semi-rigid connections using PowerConnect

  • Design of semi-rigid connections with Idea Connection Statica, using BIM Expert link

  • Integration of semi-rigid connections in Diamonds with parametric connection options

Intended for

  • Structural engineers and designers

  • Detailers

  • Anyone who does steel frame analysis and is looking to design more cost-effectively
