CAD-Based Modeling for Structural Engineers

In celebration of National Engineering Week, watch this on-demand webinar for a look at the cutting-edge CAD-based modeling of your structural analysis models.

Structural engineers are often in a time crunch to produce quantity estimates for complex front-end engineering projects. The absence of a flexible structural analysis software with a more CAD type environment can result in the overestimation of quantities or unconservative designs. CAD Modeler allows structural engineers to accurately create GT STRUDL models using state of the art BricsCAD platform. This process results in models that can be used by the design team after a project has been awarded to an EPC company thereby reducing man-hours.

The presentation will cover:

• Modeling of a base plate for a transmission tower

• How a complex Silo structure can be created using CAD Modeler

• Opportunity to submit your questions to our experts (live Q&A)
