This webinar is the follow-up session for "Traffic Load Consideration to Different Types of Bridges: Case Study by Vishal Prasad"

Influence Line & Surface Analysis on Bridges?

midasBridge TeamDecember 10, 2020

Influence line & surface analysis are moving load analysis techniques for bridges used in many structural analysis programs. In this post, we will try to understand the basic contents of these two interpretation techniques.

How to Add a Transverse Moving Load?

midasBridge TeamNovember 24, 2020

When a static concentrated load is applied on a deck, the deck will deflect transversely as well as longitudinally, similar to the structural behavior of a two-way slab. The load distribution becomes more complex when multiple point loads are applied to the deck, such as truck loads. When the structural model is simplified to a 2D frame model, it is important to obtain the resulting 3D forces from the 2D model.

Self-Anchored Suspension Bridge Design

midasBridge TeamOctober 26, 2020

 The Andy Warhol Bridge is an eyebar-chain, self-anchored suspension bridge carrying Seventh Street over the Allegheny River in the city of Pittsburgh, PA. This bridge is one of the "Three Sisters" bridges constructed from 1924 to 1928 which comprise the only trio of identical, side-by-side bridges in the world and the first self-anchored bridges constructed in the United States.

Dead Load Applications in Bridge Analysis Models

midasBridge TeamAugust 31, 2020

Loading on structures can be idealized as static loads and are one of the major issues for structures. It makes permanent deformations to structures during the service period. The dead loads can be applied in the structural analysis as static loads. The static loads include nodal loads, distributed loads, and pressure loads in the structural analysis software. midas Civil also provides various load types to cover various loading conditions. In this webinar, we will examine how static load types are applied and which static load types are available.

midas Civil GUI Techniques for Beginners

midasBridge TeamMay 7, 2020

When you start learning new software, the first thing is to get fully accustomed to its graphical user interface (GUI). The GUI is a point of interaction between a user and software. A complete understanding of the GUI means that the user takes the full advantage of the software's features.
In this session, we introduced the features and the basic skills of using midas Civil's GUI. By becoming familiar with midas Civil interface, the user will confidently build a model and perform numerical analysis.

Case Study: Transverse Analysis of PSC Box Girder in Cable-Stayed Bridge

midasBridge TeamMarch 24, 2020

In this webinar, we will introduce the midas Civil application of the transverse analysis of prestressed concrete box girder in the cable-stayed bridge. 

 


 

This case study highlights

 

1. Modeling Concept

 

2. Considered Load Case with Functions in midas Civil

 

3. Considered Boundary Conditions with Functions in midas Civil

 

4. Post-processing and Other Modeling Applications

 


 

The example structure below is the Saemangeum bridge in South Korea. This project is a preliminary design. The structure is a cable-stayed bridge with concrete superstructures, pylons, and piers. The superstructure is composed of pre-stressed concrete girders. The transverse analysis was carried out in midas Civil.
