Main features used in this application Construction stage analysis with creep and shrinkage Unknown load factor and lack of fit force for cable optimization Longitudinal & transverse post-tensioning Moving Load Analysis

Description on this project

The existing bridge was a plate steel girder, opened in January 1958. Its main span was 118m which was the longest plate girder in Western Hemisphere. For the replacement of the old bridge, several alternative studies were carried out and a concrete extradosed bridge was selected. Midas software was used for transverse review of the new bridge with the 3D model using solid elements.
