As building structures get more intricate and taller over time, the effective modeling of their components has become paramount in ensuring safety and serviceability targets. Diaphragms are a vital component of a  building structure against any  lateral loads  like earthquakes and wind. The understanding and proper modelling of diaphragms is imperative to ensure the right analysis leading to a robust design.

Join our structural experts and gain insight on the effective scope of modeling, ideation, and behavior of different types of diaphragms implemented in STAAD.Pro and RAM Structural System.   

The webinar will cover these topics: 

  1. Concept of Diaphragms and their importance
  2. Types of Diaphragms
  3. Scope of diaphragms in STAAD.Pro and RAM Structural System
  4. Proper modeling of Diaphragms
