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.

Understanding Your Structure’s Dynamic properties with Vibration Analysis

When performing any dynamic analysis, it is essential to understand the natural frequencies, modes of vibration, and more. Performing this analysis type is a good first step to any dynamic analysis problem and is a great way to troubleshoot your model. In this webinar, we will examine some helpful tips when running vibration analysis, how to interpret the results and show why this is a great way to identify potential model integrity issues early in your workflow.

Attendees will have a good starting basis for performing more rigorous dynamic analyses such as seismic, machine vibration, blast, or more.
