Duration    3-days

This 3-day course is for engineers with little or no prior knowledge of LUSAS or for those wanting to refresh their knowledge of carrying out linear static and linear buckling analysis for structural and bridge applications. The course covers getting started with LUSAS and then proceeds to cover in detail the modelling and analysis options available for creating beam models, modelling flat slabs, composite construction, 3D modelling, and in correctly applying the various types of bridge and structural loading available.

Day 1: Getting started with LUSAS

  • About LUSAS, finite element analysis, geometry, attributes, the LUSAS treeview, section property calculators, viewing results, documentation, sources of help
  • Tutor-led example: Steel warehouse building (2D beams)
  • Workshop example: Four span bridge with integral piers (2D beams)
  • Getting more out of beam models
  • Tapering sections, discrete loads and moving loads, temperature effects, settlement of supports, enveloping and smart combinations, report writer, obtaining natural frequencies
  • Tutor-led example: Steel warehouse building (2D beams) [extended]
  • Workshop example: Four span bridge with integral piers (2D beams)  [extended]

Day 2: Modelling flat slabs

  • Construction options/ classification, analysis options, isotropic slabs, plate models, grillage analogy, orthotropic slabs, multicellular slabs, shear key / box beam
  •  Tutor-led example: Skew RC slab bridge (both by grillage wizard and as plate model)
  • Beam and slab construction
  • Construction options/ classification, analysis options, mixing elements, ordinary beams with top slab, box beams with top slab
  • Tutor-led example: Steel/ composite bridge deck (mixed elements)
  • Workshop example: Beam and slab floor in a building (mixed elements)

Day 3: Introduction to 3D modelling

  • Plate girder modelling, CAD import, Developing a model in LUSAS, Basic checklist, Accuracy of FE analysis, Interpolation and mesh refinement, Element shapes, mesh patterns, Surface and volume meshing, Linear buckling analysis
  • Tutor-led example: U-frame plate girder bridge (shells)
  • Bridge and structural loading
  • Bridge loading menu, principles and use of the vehicle load optimisation facility, wheel loads
  • Tutor-led example: Skew RC slab bridge (both by grillage wizard and as plate model)
