World's Tallest Arch Bridge

midasBridge TeamApril 1, 2021

Chenab Bridge is being constructed over the Chenab River in the Himalayas. This arch-shaped steel bridge will become the world's highest railway bridge, with a total height of 359 m (1178 ft.) above the river, 35 m taller than the Eiffel Tower. It will connect Baramulla to Jammu.

Buckling Assessment on Steel Bridge Flyover

midasBridge TeamMarch 24, 2021

Background

 

In 2016, Kolkata witnessed a major steel bridge failure of the Vivekananda Road Flyover during construction which led to 27 deaths and 50 injured. The construction work of a 2.2km flyover began in 2009 and was expected to be completed in 2010. Although six years behind schedule, it was not yet completed the erection part till 2016 (Figure 1).

Geometric Properties of Sections

The geometric properties of sections, which are indicators of the structural performance and load resistance capacity of sections, are characterized by the section shape and dimensions, regardless of material properties. These section properties are needed to calculate the bending/shear stresses, deflections, strength, and buckling, which are essential factors for the overall structural design of bridges. 

Seismic Design of Concrete Bridges

Cable-arch Bridge Analysis with Seismic Damper

midasBridge TeamMarch 5, 2021

The Centennial Bridge in the city of Oradea, Romania was commissioned by Oradea City Hall to a joint venture formed of FreyRom SA & Procons SA and was designed by Integrated Road Solutions SRL in 2017-2018. The bridge was built during 2018 and was opened to traffic on 1st of December 2018, to mark the 100 years since the country was united. The bridge is an arch having a span of approximately 80m and supports a two lanes carriageway and also 2 footways with a width of 3m each.

Composite Steel Integral Bridge

midasBridge TeamMarch 4, 2021

This webinar shows a bridge design carried out in 2017 for new Composite integral bridge.The B9090 White Bridge Replacement project was commissioned by The Highland Council, Designed by AECOM and constructed by RJ McLeod. The replacement bridge was commission to bypass a Category A Listed stone bridge, which was built in the early 1750. The new bridge is a 40m span integral steel/concrete composite structure designed to support the realigned B9090 over the River Nairn.

How to Define Section Properties in Various Bridge Design Conditions

midasBridge TeamMarch 4, 2021

Section property must be applied when performing analysis as well as material properties. midas Civil provides 'Section Properties' function to define various section shape of structures. Section properties function has an option to define a geometry shape and to calculate section properties for the analysis. And also it has an option for the design feature in midas Civil. Therefore, you can use section properties function on your purpose.

New Development in Long Span Arch Bridges

midasBridge TeamFebruary 23, 2021

Arch Bridges are one of the oldest types of bridges and have great natural strength due to its geometry. Since the weight of arch bridges is carried outward along the curve, from the arch to the supports, they can be the perfect choice for long-span erections. Many new developments and improvisations on the design and construction of arch bridges have taken place in recent years, one such is the utilization of Concrete-Filled Steel Tubular (CFST) structures to arch bridges. This article will mainly focus on the use of CFST structures in arch bridges and some examples of CFST arch bridges in China.
