Finite Element Analysis on Transmission Structures

Wednesday, August 12, 2020 | 12:00 - 1:00 p.m. EST

Join us for a webinar to discuss advanced analysis of transmission structures with a focus on the design and implementation of restorations. In this webinar, you will learn: 

  • What is finite element analysis (FEA)?
  • What defines failure
  • Typical loads applied to a structure
  • Analytical model and interpreting the results
  • Temporary support and restoration

Using Analytics in Steel Structure Asset Management

Wednesday, August 26, 2020 | 12:00 - 1:00 p.m. EST

Join us for a webinar to discuss analytics in steel structure asset management. In this webinar, we will: 

  • Describe the components of structure corrosion prediction (predictive analytics and physical simulations)
  • Review the process for developing an analytics-based asset management business case
  • Review corrosion mitigation and restoration methods and best practices


John Cancian, Vice President of Asset Analytics at Osmose

Applying Industry Code to Your Pole Loading Analysis

Wednesday, September 9, 2020 | 12:00 - 1:00 p.m. EST

As the number of requests for both wire and wireless communication attachments continue to accelerate, more and more jurisdictions and pole owners are requiring and apply greater scrutiny on the submitted Pole Loading Analysis (PLA) and Make Ready Engineering (MRE).

During this webinar, you will:

  • Learn how to apply the application codes (NESC, GO95, or CSA) correctly
  • Understand when and where to apply the code rules, districts, and proper safety factors is critical for generating a proper PLA.  While understanding the multitude of clearance analysis rules is also necessary in delivering your MRE reports.
  • Review the various code requirements using the O-Calc Pro application to demonstrate the significance of understanding and applying these code requirements correctly


Mike Rigney, Ph.D. - Product Manager for O-Calc® Pro at Osmose



Cathodic Protection for Steel Utility Structures

September 30, 2020 | 12:00 - 1:00 p.m. EST 

Join us for a webinar to learn discuss the use of galvanic cathodic protection on electric utility structures. In this webinar, we will:

  • Review the corrosion process on steel
  • Review the cathodic protection process, including types of cathodic protection, anode types, assessment, testing, application, remote monitoring, and performance criteria
  • Present a cathodic protection installation case study, including program development, engineered anode acquisition, logistics, implementation, data collection, and project summary analysis
