Steel Ladder Deck Bridge Design

midasBridge TeamJune 30, 2020

This webinar shows a case study about the steel composite ladder deck girder bridge. The webinar will highlight major factors to consider in the design of this type of bridge, such as shear lag and buckling effects. It will provide recommendations on the suitability and use of different model types. Since many ladder deck bridges are constructed using the push launch method, special considerations for the construction sequence will be discussed.  

Dynamic Analysis of Footbridges as per Eurocode

midasBridge TeamJune 8, 2020

Steel composite footbridge Morava project is presented in this session. The structure is described with interesting remarks from the assembly. Practical experience on how to design footbridges that are sensitive to the load imposed by pedestrians is shared. After this session, bridge engineers will understand more deeply how to deal effectively with dynamically loaded bridges.

Design of Girder Span Bridge with PSC Sections

midasBridge TeamApril 20, 2020

A girder bridge is one of the most common types of bridge design. Prestressing a composite girder in the negative moment region increases its stiffness by preventing cracking of concrete under service loads. In this webinar, we share the design practices of girder span bridges in Sarawak and show which functions of midas Civil can be utilized for the effective modeling of this type of structure. 

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.
