Training Webinars

We are pleased to announce new training webinars for plate modeling (including the new meshing tools), RC slab design, spectral response (earthquake) analysis, harmonic and transient response (time-history) analysis. They will be conducted by the authors of SPACE GASS during October and November, 2019 and will enable you to become proficient with the program in the areas covered. The training sessions are available to those of you with a current maintenance contract and there is no charge involved.

You will be able to ask questions during the session and for 30 minutes afterwards. Answers will be provided during the event and in the following period. You will also receive a certificate of participation and a link to a recording of the event.

Training Videos

The following videos show how to use SPACE GASS, starting with a number of overview videos that are suitable for new users, and then progressing to videos on graphics, modelling, analysis and design that are suitable for intermediate and advanced users.

If you are new to SPACE GASS, we recommend that you view each video and then try the demonstrated features yourself before moving on to the next one.

New videos will be added on a regular basis and so we recommend that you visit this page periodically to keep up to date.



Note that some of the older videos below use the old SPACE GASS user interface rather than the new renderer interface. Despite this, all of the demonstrated principals still apply and you can perform the same procedures in the new user interface. These videos will be updated in due course.
