Key Learning Objectives

SAFI Software offers tremendous analysis capabilities. This 7-hour course – Analysis Functions – allows participants to know how to apply more advanced features of SAFI allowing them to master different types of analyzes such as P-Delta, Nonlinear, Buckling, Frequency analysis, and more.

Course Overview
Properties (sections, variable inertia, cable, bars and trusses, plates and shells, user-defined).

Model (springs, imposed displacements, inclined supports, member offsets, deflections (beams), introduction to finite elements (plate elements, mesh contours, integration lines, iso-contours)

Loads (thermal loads, wind loads and wind profiles on members, weights and masses definition, loads cg calculation)

Graphical functions (advanced edition commands, disconnect from the structure, rotate section option, alignment of the sections)

Edit (operations, remove orphan joints, combine nearby joints, recalculate)

Analysis (data verification, example with errors to be fixed)


P-Delta analysis and geometric nonlinear analysis: Introduction (P-Delta analysis), Example (P-Delta analysis), Introduction (Nonlinear analysis), Example (Nonlinear analysis), Model, Analysis (convergence and instability), Results (comparisons), Notional load.

Buckling analysis: Introduction, theory, Euler’s load, Application, Analysis, comparison with non-linear analysis, examples.

Frequency analysis: Introduction, theory, Mass matrix, Model (geometry, self-weight and additional weights) Analysis, Results (participating mass, results global and local modes), examples.
