Digital data provides a basis for rethinking the structural engineering design process.

Background

With the addition of increased computing power, this combination is beneficial to a computational data driven process, helping engineers work more efficiently with closer data driven collaboration.

The interactive briefing includes presentations, demonstrations and in the afternoon deep dive sessions into the software with Trimble’s experts.

Agenda

Registration opens at 08.30. Event 09.00 - 13.30. Demo Sessions 14.30 - 16.30

Session 1 
David Sanderson will discuss the "Parametric and Generative Design - why its important, future visions and workflows". This session will further look at digital data and how it provided a basis for rethinking the structural engineering processes.

Session 2 
A demo focused session, Sebastian Lindholm will explore "How engineers can reduce time spent on generating complex geometry and design details". This session will explain how engineers using Tekla Structures and Grasshopper can quickly realise the architect's vision early on in the design stage, this helps reduce time and errors while increasing work productivity. 

Session 3
Arup's Gordon Clannachan will talk about Arups approach to algorithmic design and how Tekla & Grasshopper has influenced and changed their business for the better.

Session 4
Dr Stuart Gale will present on "Tekla Structural Designer and parametric modelling" with an overview of the Grasshopper and TSD live link, parametric and generative workflows and a look ahead to the next generation of the Grasshopper-TSD live link. 

Speakers

David Sanderson, A&D Product Manager

David has spent the last 30 years creating and managing the development of market leading analysis and design software for the construction industry. Originally starting his development career with CSC, now Trimble, David has been an integral part of the evolution of software packages primarily for the design of steel buildings - Fastrak Building Designer, Fastrak Portal Frame Designer, and most recently software for the design of steel and concrete buildings - Tekla Structural Designer. David is now Product Manager for A&D products within Trimble Structures division.

Sebastian Lindholm, Advanced BIM Consultant

Sebastian works in Trimble Structures Division HQ in Finland where he develops and manages solutions for dealing with complex geometry in Tekla Structures. Currently, he's preoccupied with exploring parametric workflows using the link between Grasshopper and Tekla Structures, which enables rapid structural form iterations and investigation of design options.

Gordon Clannachan, Senior Structural Engineer

Gordon works with Arup as a Senior Structural and Wind Engineer. He completed a Ph.D. in Civil Engineering from the University of Strathclyde in 2012. His study concentrated on developing an adequate Performance-Based Wind Engineering (PBWE) framework for tall building design. Gordon has been involved in the delivery of several successful projects such as high rise residential and commercial developments.

Dr. Stuart Gale, Software Engineer

Stuart joined Trimble in 2016, after completing a Ph.D. at the University of Warwick. His first project was Slab Deflection Analysis, where he developed both the finite element solver and user workflow in Tekla Structural Designer. Stuart is now exploring the use of generative modelling and design for structural engineering, in particular developing a link between Grasshopper and Tekla Structural Designer.

 

This is an industry briefing organised by Trimble and hosted by the Institution of Structural Engineers.
