General

Introduction and principles of Component-based finite element method. Assumption of models, types of analysis. Design possibilities.

Eurocode

Check of components according to Eurocode, mainly EN 1993-1-8. Components of the analysis model, e.g. bolts or welds, are described in detail.

AISC

Check of components according to AISC, mainly ANSI/AISC 360-16 and ACI 318-14. Software provideschecks according to LRFD or ASD.

CISC

Check of components according to CISC, mainly CSA S16-14 and A23.3-14. Code based checks which do not rely completely on finite element method are described.

AS

Check of components according to AS 4100–1998. Code based checks which do not rely completely on finite element method are described.

SNiP

Check of components according to AS 4100–1998. Code based checks which do not rely completely on finite element method are described.
