If you want to learn about simulating vibration in the built environment, then tune into this webinar with Murray Snaith of Xi Engineering Consultants.
Structural response to vibration is an important part of the architectural and structural design process, as the response can be critical to the overall success of a building.
In this webinar, we will discuss how the COMSOL Multiphysics® software can be used to simulate the dynamic response of buildings. We will also discuss the effect of external and environmental vibrations on a structure and how these vibrations can be modeled. During a live demonstration, you will see how a frequency response analysis can be used to predict vibration levels in a converted classroom that is used to house sensitive lab equipment.
You can ask questions at the end of the webinar during the Q&A session.
