The training is suitable for both, beginners and advanced KISSsoft users. No previous knowledge of KISSsoft is required.

The theory of the VDI 2230 (part 1, partially part 2) is introduced to enable the participants to understand the necessary terms and correlations. On KISSsoft side, various connection configurations such as single bolts under longitudinal and lateral force or flange connections are considered. The database with its possibilities to enter own bolts and materials is shown. Exercises are carried out to get acquainted with the sequence of the calculation process.

The full schedule is provided in the training program.
