Online Seminar – Series of international Keynotes starting with Prof. František Wald: Component based finite element design of steel joints

More information available here.


Steel Construction (STCO) journal presents a series of International Online Live Seminars (OLS) Keynotes as an overview of present applied steel construction research. Partners of the STCO-OLS series are the European Convention for Constructional Steelwork,  Akademie der Ingenieure from Stuttgart and the Ernst & Sohn journal Steel Construction. The online presentations take about 1 to 1.5 h, followed by questions & answers.

At the first OLS Prof. Wald will explain the principles of multi‐level finite element modelling for design of structural steel joints. An important part of the design by finite elements is the validation and verification of the model and its results. In component bases finite element design (CBFEB) are the steel plates considered by geometrically and materially non‐linear analysis (GMNA). The differences between research‐oriented and design‐oriented models and the currents trends in modelling of connection components are highlighted. Both have their roles in advanced analyses. The OLS shows the potential in design of elements including its connection.
