Teaching Methodology: Hands on
Autodesk® Robot™ Structural Analysis Professional software provides structural engineers
with advanced building simulation and analysis capabilities for large and complex structures.
The structural analysis software offers a smoother workflow and interoperability with
Autodesk® Revit® Structure software to extend the Building Information Modeling (BIM)
process, enabling engineers to more quickly perform comprehensive simulation and analysis
of a variety of structures.
This course is oriented for concrete buildings only.
