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
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.
