Webinar: Demystifying Seismic Loads

August 3, 2023 @ 11:00 AM - 11:30 AM

Anticipating and Simulating Unpredictable Loads

Understanding Dynamic Structural Analysis with Altair® S-FRAME®

AEC Coffee-Break Series

Dynamic behavior is an essential structural characteristic that structural engineers should consider. The effects of dynamic loads (earthquakes, blasts, vibrations, or any time-varying loading) are often greater than static loads and can vary in magnitude at non-periodical time intervals, increasing the unpredictability and posing more risk of damage to structures.

These concise 20-minute presentations offer valuable insights and practical tips to understand how S-FRAME can help to simulate dynamic behaviors.

The topics we will cover encompass basic principles of dynamics, vibration analysis, time history analysis, employing past data to forecast your model’s reaction, and interpreting the results of various analyses to understand structural behavior.

Demystifying Seismic Loads

August 3, 2023, 2:00pm – 2:30pm EDT

Response Spectrum and Equivalent Lateral/Static Force Procedure Analysis

The random nature of seismic events can make predicting accurate earthquake loads on a structure challenging. The Response Spectrum Method estimates the maximum response of a structure to Seismic Loads based on historical ground motion data, site parameters, and more.

This presentation describes how Structural Engineers can apply these estimated seismic loads and combine them with other loading conditions for their structural design. We will show the workflows involved in determining the forces and ensuing accurate responses to these loads.
