Creating & Maintaining FE mesh for Structural Designs: There’s a better way!

Airing on Thurs., Feb. 2, 2017 at 12pm CST

More and more civil and structural engineers are being asked to work iteratively with designers and architects.  As timelines shrink, the efficiencies required to complete complex projects become more important.

One of the most time-consuming aspects of complex projects is that of creating, generating and maintaining the project’s finite element (FE) mesh.  Typically, a process that requires trial and error, this tedious process can zap an engineer’s productivity while limiting the amount of time available for more important design decisions.

In this free webinar, the speaker will show how SCIA Engineer makes creating an accurate finite element (FE) mesh more efficient by allowing the software to take on the process of mesh refinement.
