With recent advances in computing and modeling tools, and with growing challenges in terms of increase in population, urbanization, complexities in structural forms and innovative systems, the practicing structural engineers and designers nowadays need to equip themselves with various advanced skills. The demand and complexity is rapidly increasing for built environment including accommodation, offices, and commercial areas to accommodate rapidly growing urban population. Resultantly, the cities and infrastructure of future will need to be denser, complex and taller. These challenges require great expertise and computational capabilities in terms of using state-of-the-art nonlinear analysis procedures, latest computer modeling software and developing insight into the complex dynamic behavior of structures.
