Computer-Aided Analysis with CSI SAFE

Dear Structural Engineers,

SDI is pleased to inform you that Structural Design Institute has organized a one-month Comprehensive Training Programme on "Computer-Aided Analysis with CSI SAFE".
SAFE is a software tailored for the engineering of elevated floor and foundation slab systems. Slab modeling, analysis, and design procedures feature a suite of sophisticated tools and applications, couple with post-tensioning, punching-shear, and beam detailing, and integrate the influence of soils, ramps, columns, braces, walls (rectilinear or curvilinear), and other interfacial elements. Interoperability with SAP2000 and ETABS allows users to import models, loading, and displacement fields into SAFE for more advanced local assessment of slab systems within larger structures.

  • Module Leader: Eng. Shiromal Fernando
  • Resource Persons: Eng. Tharanga Pradeep, Eng. Balraj Kiriparan
  • Duration: One-month (four weeks)
  • Time: Four consecutive Saturdays (9.30 am-12.30 pm)

Course Outline :
  • Introduction to the interface, tools, and facilities of CSI SAFE
  • Foundation analysis and design with CSI SAFE (Isolated footings, Strip Footings, Raft Foundations and Piled Foundations)
  • Flat Slab Analysis and Design with CSI SAFE
  • Analysis of Post Tensioned reinforced concrete slab systems with CSI SAFE
Features of the Course:
  • Training shall be conducted by a practicing Structural Design Engineer, under the guidance and direction of Eng. Shiromal Fernando.
  • A comprehensive set of notes shall be given
  • Small groups with individual attention
  • Starting from basics and gradually covered advanced topics with extensive training
  • Participation certifications shall be awarded after successful completion of the course

Course Fee: Rs. 25,000/= (a 10% fee reduction shall be applicable for those had followed CSI ETABS or CSI SAP 2000 course at SDI).
Commencement: 06th January 2018 (Saturday)
Pre-requisite: Recommended to bring a laptop computer with the software installed.
Working knowledge of a structural analysis software such as SAP2000/ ETABS preferred (but not compulsory).
A recognized Engineering degree is a pre-requisite.

Limited seats available, the reservation shall be on first come first serve basis.
