CivilFEM Nuclear Applications Webinar

An overview of the capabilities of the CivilFEM software for performing analyses of nuclear applications. The presentation is given by Peter Barrett, M.S.C.E., PE, Vice President of CAE Associates.

The advanced structural analysis capabilities of ANSYS and the specific civil engineering modules of CivilFEM combine to create a unique and powerful tool for all types of challenging nuclear power plant engineering analyses -- linear, nonlinear, static and dynamic simulations of pre-stress and post-tensioning , concrete design, construction process and seismic analysis.

This hour-long webinar highlights the specific CivilFEM for ANSYS simulation capabilities in the area of nuclear power plant design.  These features include specific nuclear code checking of structures (steel and/or concrete codes: ACI349, ACI359, ANSI/AISC-N690, ASME B&PV Code Section III-NF, AISC-ASD 9th Edition, etc.), analysis of post-tensioned RC containment structures (including effects of creep, relaxation and the use pre-stressed RC capabilities applied to any geometry).
