February 22, 2020 – Engineering Workshop on LS-DYNA
“Tutorial on Introduction to LS-DYNA”
UB-EERI Student Chapter organized a tutorial on LS-DYNA on February 22, 2020. This was the second tutorial conducted as a part of the Chapter’s initiative “Introduction to using FEA software in structural engineering application” for the academic year 2019-2020. Ching Ching Yu and Faizan Ul Haq Mir, two UB PhD students who have in-depth knowledge in LS-DYNA presented the tutorial.
Many UB graduate students were benefited by this tutorial which covered:
- Introduction to LS-DYNA – modeling, cards, solvers etc.
- Eigenvalue, static, and dynamic analyses for beams with different boundary conditions and comparison of numerical results with those from hand calculations using Classical Beam Theory
- Analysis of the modeled beam for a sample blast loading
November 22, 2019 – Engineering Workshop on SAP2000
“Tutorial on Seismic Analysis of Structures using SAP2000”
A tutorial on SAP2000 was organized by the UB-EERI Student Chapter on November 22, 2019. This was the first tutorial conducted as a part of the Chapter’s initiative “Introduction to using FEA software in structural engineering application” for the year 2019-2020. The tutorial was presented by three UB PhD Students: Kaivalya M Lal, Rahul Raman, and Sai Sharath Parsi. It was a 3 hour long tutorial covering a broad range of topics that are useful for seismic analysis of structures, both linear and nonlinear procedures, in SAP2000. Some of them include: Basics of modeling and meshing, modal analysis, geometric and material non-linearity, static push-over analysis, response-spectrum analysis, and linear and nonlinear response-history analysis.
November 18, 2017 – 1st annual Lancaster STEAMfest
UB EERI Student Chapter participated today in the 1st annual Lancaster STEAMfest (Science Technology Engineering Arts/Architecture Math) This was an event for K-12 kids/families at Lancaster High School.
Some of our members volunteered to show some of the amazing engineering happening just here in Western New York
October 21, 2017 – SAP2000 Tutorial
On October21, 2017, the UB-EERI Student Chapter organized a SAP2000 Tutorial. This tutorial covered DynamicAnalysis of Structures for students at the graduate level. The presenters were Ramla Karim Qureshi and Robin Kumar, both of them PhD students at UB.
October 20, 2017 – UB-EERI Campfire Night
UB-EERI celebrated its 2017 Campfire Night on October 20th with the participation of UB EERI members and other graduate students. It was an amazing night sharing good moments with fellows.
October 15, 2017 – The Big Dig Day Volunteering
On October 15, 2017, members of the UB-EERI Student Chapter volunteered in “The Big Dig”. In this activity, organized by the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences of the University at Buffalo, the volunteers spent a morning planting approximately 600 daffodil, crocus, iris and allium bulbs in the garden beds throughout the Grace Plaza area, located in the UB’s North Campus.
