Summer School "7th International course on Seismic Analysis of Structures using OpenSees"
AIM OF THE COURSE
OpenSEES (Open System for Earthquake Engineering Simulations) is an open-source software mainly conceived for the seismic analysis of structures. The source code is public in order to facilitate its wide diffusion and to be adaptable to the needs of users, who can also modify and extend default libraries in terms of materials, components, and algorithms. The main difficulties that users usually face during their first approach to OpenSEES are due to the programming language, which might appear rather complex. Following previous editions, the main goal of this short course is to provide a basic understanding of finite element-based theoretical framework and programming language in OpenSEES. Structural engineering and research applications will be also presented.
The 7th edition of the summer school will be held at Politecnico di Torino from July 5 to July 6, 2022.
ORGANIZATION OF THE COURSE
The full-immersion course is scheduled over 2 days, starting from fundamentals to advanced applications. The Summer School is organized together with the 2nd Eurasian OpenSees Days Conference which will be held at Politecnico di Torino on 7-8 July 2022. Summer School participants will have a special discount to attend the conference.
Lectures are organized as follows:
- Theoretical lectures – Fundamentals about the Finite Element Method.
- Applicative lectures – Programming language and model development in OpenSEES.
- Live workshop – Live exercise using OpenSEES.
TARGET AUDIENCE & LANGUAGE
Master students, PhD candidates, post-doctoral fellows, and practitioners. The course will be offered in English
