Course Description: This course is intended for structural engineers who are familiar with GT STRUDL frame analysis capabilities through the Basic course or by experience and who want to enhance their design engineering productivity by using the integrated design/ analysis capabilities of GT STRUDL. Specialized GT STRUDL capabilities are presented that allow an engineer to direct automated member selection to practical and architectural constraints. Use of major design codes, the AISC ASD and LRFD, BSI ASD and Limit State Design, Eurocode, CISC, IS800, ASCE Transmission Tower, and the ASME support structure (NF) codes including weld design are reviewed. Various levels and amounts of code checking and design printed output are illustrated. In addition, GTTABLE commands are described and examples presented for those users wishing to define their own tables of steel profiles. Examples of creating cross-section tables by only specifying cross-section dimensions are also presented. Finally, each student designs frame structures during workshops each day with an emphasis on the efficient use of the system. Course Prerequisites: This course is for those engineers who have taken the Basic Static Analysis course, or through experience, are competent in basic GTSTRUDL capabilities.
