The session began at 4 pm with Mrs Kirty Vadalkar welcoming the guests on behalf of STADD Engineers. She briefly explained the company policy of keeping the users informed about the changes in the software packages. The main motive of this workshop was to share the knowledge of various building solutions that Bentley offers. With the change in the construction scenario i.e. change in the size of the structures, to handle the data manually is extremely difficult. So the use of the software is a must. Bentley provides the right software as solutions to all the needs of a structural engineer.

Mr. Dhruba Mukhopadhyay, Regional Sales Manager had given corporate over view about Bentley.

The first technical session was on “ Solutions to common modeling problem”conducted by Hemant Vadalkar of - STADD Engineers. His lecture was highlyappreciated by the participants as it contained a lot of technical references which are normally not available to Engineers. Whileusing the software , the user makes a lot of mistakes, gets wrong results & blames on the software. These wrong notions need tobe addressed. Hemant Vadalkar, answered all the queries and doubts of a user. Participants were very much impressed. In next session Akshit Dhawan, Application enginer covered STAAD foundation advanced features.

After a tea break, Sjit Nair – CEO S-Cube talked on Planwin and RCDC software and how it helps in getting the calculations and drawings prepared for RCC work.
