This course is designed to help you start to get to grips with digital curation in both these aspects.

The Structural Analysis and Modelling Portal (SAMP) offers a number of practical applications of structural analysis and design concepts that students typically learn through their undergraduate and graduate studies in Civil Engineering. The portal offers a variety of sessions where students implement structural analysis theory by hand calculations to validate the results obtained through computer simulation. The sessions mainly focus on the use of Oasys GSA (General Structural analysis) software. However, other packages such as SeismoStruct, SeismoSignal or OpenSees are also included in some of the sessions. Tutorial videos and other supporting materials are offered in each one of the sessions to enable student self-learning.
