4 - 5 June 2016


The FOSSEE project based at IIT Bombay invites professors/professionals of your institution/organization, who engage in the (teaching of) design of steel structures, to the Osdag Pre-Launch Workshop on June 04-05, 2016.

Osdag is a GUI-based cross-platform free and open-source software for the design (and detailing) of steel structures, following the Indian Standard IS 800:2007. Osdag is currently under development. An alpha verion of Osdag containing a few connection design modules is expected to be released in September 2016.

The primary objective of this “pre-launch” workshop is to expose domain experts and prospective Osdag users to the current version of this software, and to obtain their feedback. This feedback will enable the developers to come out with a more user-friendly and useful version of Osdag at its projected launch.

In addition to hands-on trials of Osdag by the participants, the workshop will feature talks from the experts who are members of the BIS code committees pertaining to IS 800.


This event is only for faculty and people from industry. Student registrations will not be accepted.
