Using Advance Design enabled us to import the model geometry using BIM swiftly and smoothly. Loads and combinations were assessed making easy dynamic analysis of this complex model.
Hooman Baghi, Principal Structure Engineer

The Challenge
• To tackle the instability of a combined, twisted and bent cantilevered steel structure
• Consider and compare several loadcases and load combinations. Analysis was key
• Importing the geometry into an appropriate design package using BIM was an issue

The Solution
• A vigorous interrogation of the 3D model and analysis was carried out
• Several independent models were developed to correctly assess the structural behaviour

User Benefits
• Smooth geometry using BIM
• Dynamic analysis ran swiftly and calculated several loadcases
• Able to directly export model for fabrication
• Less resource, faster solution, time saved and tight programme achieved
