Silvia's Brainery: The Academy

This initiative has become a great collaborative effort!!!! I am working with a growing number of technical experts and educators on building a community of knowledge sharing beyond how-to YouTube videos. We are building courses where you gain knowledge AND understanding. To make the project sustainable, we are charging a nominal amount. We have all types of training courses and our list of contributors is growing! Visit the on-line academy at Or sign up for a course below.

The current offerings follow in three categories:

1. Recommended Bundled Courses, shown below

2. OpenSees Courses

3. Numerical-Simulation Courses beyond OpenSees Fundamentals

4. Structural Dynamics Fundamentals (NEW!!!)

5. Analysis, Behavior, and Design of Earthquake Resilient Buildings at Near-fault Sites


Please contact me if you would like to purchase a bundle of courses, or are interested in purchasing multiple licenses for your group.
