This class will introduce a novel approach to design and check of structural steel joints and connections of any topology. It is based on a new method called Component-based Finite Element Model (CBFEM) and has been implemented into IDEA StatiCa Connection software. Structural engineers and fabricators can use models created in Advance Steel software, Revit software, and Robot Structural Analysis software to quickly export all data necessary and perform pass/fail check of any joint according to the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) / Eurocode. We will examine this new extended workflow for Autodesk users, and show its relevance on real-life projects from all around the world. Join this class to learn how to deal with any steel joint your projects can bring, in minutes. We’ll explain the whole calculation process and show tools to optimize the joint (bolt patterns and so on). This session features Advance Steel and Revit Structure.
