Seismic Design of Reinforced Concrete Structures
using Robot™ Structural and Altiscad Intellishape®
Dr. Eng. Gheorghe IONICĂ
The recent seismic disasters revealed the increasing need of a design conceived for safer buildings. Theclass will explain how to perform seismic analysis of multi-storey building, according to various countrycode requirements. The class will focus on advanced plastic analysis using both Autodesk RobotStructural Analysis and Altiscad Intellishape, a custom developed solution for checking ultimateresistance of structural elements. Attending this class. engineers will learn how to design concreteelements with arbitrary shape, structural wall cores, or columns under compression with lateral load. BothRobot Structural Analysis and Revit® Structure advanced capabilities will be used to analyze a structure,to add reinforcement, and to calculate elements ultimate capacity.
