Offering our members the ‘FEA factor’

As crucial as it is to be able to identify problems experienced by engineers – solving those problems with the right tools is equally important. That’s because the element of uncertainty is there for the first part of the process, and for engineers – these problems are closely tied with design. Today, virtual design and…

HERA sponsors STESSA18 to drive understanding in steel structure seismic performance

Ensuring we build on our seismic research capabilities has never been more important to us. Which is why sponsoring STESSA18 made sense. To represent our commitment, we were proud to have our General Manager Welding Centre Michail Karpenko, Finite Element Analyst Nandor Mago and HERA Foundation Scholarship Recipient Hafez Taheri attend the STEESA18 – SCNZ…

Fire behaviour of slender, highly utilised, eccentrically loaded concrete-filled tubular columns

Our General Manager Structural Systems Dr Stephen Hicks and Finite Element Analyst Nandor Mago have published a peer-reviewed paper in the Journal of Constructional Steel Research. The paper investigates the fire performance of highly utilized and eccentrically loaded concrete filled composite columns with a slenderness greater than currently permitted for the simple calculation model in…

Call for comment – Tosca structure optimisation

Currently HERA is considering to extend its Abaqus finite element analsysis license to include topology optimisation. We’flike to hear from interested companies if they would like to explore optimisation at this level and expand their design field in co-operation with HERA’s Structural Systems. The description and illustration of the technology is given below.   Tosca…
