The full-day conference takes place on the 21st April 2017 at the University of Sheffield and hopes to inspire future generations as well as promote the fundamentals of design. It is the first time IABSE, the International Association for Bridge and Structural Engineering, are hosting an event in Sheffield.
Hugh Morrison of Hugh Morrison Associates and author of the acclaimed âStructural Engineering: Art and Approximationâ book, invited Oasys Application Specialist, Professor Peter Debney, to join him present a section of the interactive workshop. The aim of the workshop is to demonstrate how approximation of the structural behaviour of a long-span structure using hand calculations can provide an understanding of its dynamic response. The example structure used is the Merchantâs Bridge in Castlefield, Manchester with Oasys GSA being the software of choice to validate the delegateâs results.
