Eurocode3 Design Examples

This article provides list of examples from “Designers’ Guide to Eurocode3: Design of steel buildings EN 1993-1-1, EN 1993-1-3 and EN 1993-1-8” to verify design results of SDC Verifier.   Example 6.6: cross-section resistance under combined bending and compression; Example 6.7: buckling resistance of a compression member; Example 6.9: member […]

Eurocode 3. Example 6.7: Buckling resistance of a compression member

We compare the buckling resistance of a compression member according to SDC Verifier and Designer’s Guide to Eurocode3: Design of steel buildings EN 1993-1-1. The results are generated with SDC Verifier 4.5 and calculated with FEMAP v11.3.1 Task:  A circular hollow section (CHS) member is to be used as an […]

Weld Strength Check

This step-by-step tutorial demonstrates how to perform the weld strength check according to Eurocode 3, DNV OS-C101-LRFD, DNV OS-C201-WSD standards in SDC Verifier. The following steps are covered: Weld Finder Tool detailed review; Weld Stress calculations; Standards creation; Report preparation and results.

AISC 360-10 and Eurocode 3

The tutorial illustrates how to perform Member Check according to the AISC 360-10. A beam model of a lattice structure has been used as a start FEM model. In this tutorial, AISC 360-10 Beam Design Checks are reviewed in details. A beam model structure has been used as a start […]

Eurocode3 Beam Member Checks

The Eurocode3 rules estimate the risk of global and local buckling limits of the steel beam members with a classification based method. For the explanation of the checking procedure with the SDC Verifier software the beam member below is used.
