Continuing Professional Development:  Constructeursregister:  2 KE/PE-points*


  • The aim of this course is to provide a general overview of the seismic analysis capabilities of DIANA, with particular emphasis on the dynamics specific modeling aspects and analysis types. 
  • Exercises: Compression wave propagation in soil medium (insight) & Earthquake on five-story building (insight)
  • Q&A


The learning objectives of this course are:

  • To recognize and discuss the dynamic specific modeling aspects (wave speeds, mass, damping, etc.)
  • To discuss the characteristics of dissipative materials for dynamic,  loadings and absorbing boundaries.
  • To give an overview on the various dynamic analysis types and their specific outputs

Who Should Attend?  Practicing engineers, and academics with a minimum knowledge of DIANA 

Course Format:  The course is divided into two sessions, each session will be approximately 2.5hrs in length, and will include lectures, live demos or insights, and discussions. DIANA will be made available to participants for the duration of the course.
