Course Objective

SAFE is an integrated FEM tool for designing reinforced and post-tensioned concrete floor and foundation systems. The software includes a versatile 3D object-based modeling and visualization tools. From framing layout to detail-drawing production, SAFE integrates every aspect of the engineering design process in one easy and intuitive environment.

This two-day hands-on SAFE training course will provide practicing engineers with a comprehensive overview of the new features and the required know-how on how to use the all new SAFE 2016 to effectively model, analyze and design various floor systems. An introductory session on P/T modeling with SAFE P/T is also included.
