06.21.18 | How to Verify SE Software

Structural Engineers are relying more and more on structural engineering software for analysis and design. Understanding the different options available for modeling is paramount in ensuring the best model is created to imitate reality and give engineers the best possible design. This presentation reviews various methods for verifying the loads defined on models, verify the analysis results, and finally verify the design check made for members within the model.
It is easy to assume that all structural engineering software solves engineering problems correctly. Unfortunately, there can be errors. The error can be in programming or user error. Engineers must have a good understanding apart from software to spot these errors.
