OnDemand Training | STAAD: Introduction to FEA

Finite Element Method is the backbone of any comprehensive  modern structural analysis solution. Industrial use and the Computational implementation of FEM developed back in 1960 has become the gold standard of the computational structural analysis of complex shapes subjected to different loading and boundary conditions.

STAAD is also a Finite Element Analysis software which can handle the analysis of various complex engineering structures.

However, for a structural engineer, it is equally important to know the proper Finite Element theory,  procedures, modeling, analysis and interpretation of the result.

Here in this training course, we will share case studies on FEA in STAAD that we have compiled over time and curated them to create content best suited for you, covering the aspects like theoretical finite element procedures, and its implementation in STAAD.

  • Introduction to FEA
  • Understanding the FEA formulation and procedures
  • Effective FEA modeling, meshing, element property etc.
  • Discussion on both plates and solids elements
  • Analysis of FEA model
  • Interpretation of the FEA post-processing results
  • Discussion on some important user asked FEA queries and issues
