Learn the Practical Art of FEA

Finite Element Analysis is both an art and a science, and one that many engineers do not take in school. Learn how to master this technology. Create structural models that are both efficient and accurate. Learn how to control and solve instability problems. Understand the basic theory and limitations of the software. Get practical insights from Terry Kubat, IES founding partner and developer with 30 years of experience helping engineers solve real problems.

Topics may include advanced member capabilities, plate meshing and refinement, nonlinear modeling, load combinations, area loading, ASCE 7 wind loading, P-delta and AISC Direct analysis, dynamic analysis, performance concerns, result validation, reporting, BIM capabilities, and more. Content will be customized for actual attendees. Other IES tools may also be covered.


Cost is $400 per person. Receive a PDH certificate of attendance. For new customers, training cost may be applied toward a new license purchase of VisualAnalysis, or 10% off a new subscription purchase.
