Project details

About the course:
With the 2005 AISC Specification for Structural Steel Buildings, the state of art was advanced to include three methods for stability design, including the powerful new approach-the direct analysis method (DM). The DM is a practical alternative to the more traditional effective length method (ELM), which has been the stability considerations in earlier editions of the AISC Specification, and continues to be permitted. In the 2010 AISC Specification, the DM is presented in Chapter C as the primary method. This short course will introduce the basic requirements of the DM, the limitations on the use of the traditional ELM, and the application of the DM with seismic design. Different examples and analytical models using STAAD Pro software will be presented. The course shall be three days, each day five hours including a break in between.

Training Program Duration: 

  • 3 Session / Week - one week.
  • Each day 5 Hours Session with a break.
  • 3 Days per Week (8-9-10 May).

    Certification Exam:
  • There will be several quizzes given during the course.

    A certificate shall be issued from the Civil Engineering Center, Cairo University at the end of the three days for the attendees who successfully complete the course.

    Course Instructor: 
  • Prof. Dr. Sherif Mourad, Faculty of Engineering, Cairo University.
  • Dr. Hazem Alanwar, Faculty of Engineering, Cairo University.
  • Eng. Mohammed Elmeligy, PAGESCO.
