The Direct Analysis Method (DAM) is a cutting-edge approach for designing steel structures, as per the AISC 360 code. Unlike traditional methods, DAM simplifies stability analysis by eliminating the need to calculate effective length factors. DAM also addresses crucial second-order effects like P-Δ and Pδ- effects, along with residual stress considerations. Join our upcoming webinar for a comprehensive look at DAM and its integration into STAAD software, revolutionizing steel structure design.

This webinar will include the following topics: 

  • Master AISC-specified DAM principles and practical applications
  • Improve accuracy in steel structure stability analysis and design with DAM
  • Explore how DAM simplifies complex calculations
  • Witness real-world benefits of DAM through project case studies
  • Acquire practical knowledge for integrating DAM effectively into the STAAD environment
In this webinar, both experienced and new structural engineers can learn a modern method for designing steel structures, emphasizing efficiency and precision over the traditional ELM approach.
