OVERVIEW

Setting up links for bridge structure analysis is a very important step, yet often times it is implemented without too much consideration to its implication to the overall structural behavior.

 

This webinar will include a discussion on the most commonly used types of links in bridge engineering industry. The webinar speaker, Luis Vila from GM2 Associates, will talk about the appropriate applications of various types of links in midas Civil. He will compare the structural effects resulted from using different insertion point offsets. Validation methods will also be covered.

KEY POINTS

Key point 1: Why are links needed?

The webinar will discuss the link type that is one of the boundary conditions in FEM SW. He will introduce the basic concept of link types. So we will get some ideas regarding when links are needed and where they can be used. And also he will compare two typical link types called Rigid Link and Elastic Link that can be found in midas Civil for proper usage of link boundary types.

 

Key point 2: Model Validation

Model validation is the most important part of modelling and analysis to obtain reasonable analysis results. He will go through various element models from a simple model to a complex model.

 

Key point 3: Modelling Consideration

In the last part of the webinar, he will discuss considerations and tips for successful modelling work.
