Bridge and Civil Structure Design New Standard
The user-oriented input/output functions are based on sophisticated and intuitive User Interface and up-to-date Computer Graphics techniques. They offer excellent facilities and productivity for the modeling and analysis of complex, large-scale structures.
midas Civil enables us to readily create nodes and elements as if we were drawing drawings using the major functions of CAD programs. Powerful automatic modeling functions such as Auto Mesh Generation and various Bridge Wizards are introduced.Once the basic section and bridge information and tendon placement data for the case of a PSC bridge are provided, the Wizard creates the completed bridge model as well as the construction stage models.
Complete Analysis Options
midas Civil provides linear and nonlinear structural analysis capabilities. A large collection of finite elements has been implemented for applications in civil and building structures. The program’s efficient analysis algorithms yield exceptional versatility and accurate results appropriate for practical design applications.
The post-processor can automatically create load combinations in accordance with specified design standards. Changing the type of display can produce various forms of graphic output. Practically all the results can be animated, namely, mode shapes, time history results of displacements and member forces, dynamic analysis results and static analysis results.
midas Civil also provides results that are compatible with MS Excel, which enables the user to review all analysis and design results systematically.
Auto Design and Load Rating
Midas Civil provides various design check and load rating features including:
Eurocode & AASHTO LRFDBending, shear & torsional strengthsComposite plate girder designMember forces & stresses for eachconstruction stage and max & min stress summationsAutomatic generation of load combinations in accordance with various design codesMS Excel format calculation report.
