This sponsored industry briefing by StruSoft discovers how to enhance your concrete design by integrating modern and user-friendly non-linear plastic analysis methods. Gain insights into effectively navigating common pitfalls in concrete design, ultimately aiming to create structurally efficient buildings.

Please note that this event will be held at our London HQ and will not be conducted online.

As engineers, it is our responsibility to translate real-world behaviour into simplified models. However, factors such as cracking, plastic redistribution, creep, and shrinkage can present challenges, often leading to oversimplifications and over-designed structures.
 
Join us for an industry briefing featuring a technical presentation on the new non-linear plastic material model for reinforced concrete in FEM-Design. This model aims to accurately simulate realistic behaviour, resulting in significantly increased load-bearing capacities in most cases. Consequently, this allows for more efficient utilisation of reinforced concrete and reduces CO2 emissions.
 
The industry briefing addresses common pitfalls and demonstrate techniques for modelling various scenarios, including global stability checks, load takedowns, and design calculations for concrete structures.

This industry briefing covers the following topics:

  • Model simplifications for realistic behaviour

  • Non-linear plastic shell theory

  • Practical applications

  • Key aspects for concrete design in FEA

  • CO2 calculation and optimisation

Reason to attend

  • Apply modern FEA technology to meet Eurocode standards effectively.

  • Evaluate strategies to enhance competitiveness through optimized concrete material usage, leading to reduced CO2 emissions.

  • Understand common modelling errors and pitfalls in concrete design to improve knowledge and practice.

Intended for

  • Structural engineers
