midas Civil is state of the art engineering software that set a new standard for the design or bridges and civil structures. It features a distinctively user friendly interface and optimal design solution functions that can account for construction stages and time dependent properties. Its highly developed modeling and analysis functions enable engineers to overcome common challenges and inefficiencies of finite element analysis. With midas Civil, you will be able to create high quality designs with unprecedented levels of efficiency and accuracy.
The user-oriented input/output functions are based on sophisticated and intuitive User Interface and up-to-date Computer Graphics techniques. They offer excellent facilities and productivity for the modeling and analysis of complex, large-scale structures.Interface Details
midas Civil enables us to readily create nodes and elements as if we were drawing drawings using the major functions of CAD programs. Powerful automatic modeling functions such as Auto Mesh Generation and various Bridge Wizards are introduced.Once the basic section and bridge information and tendon placement data for the case of a PSC bridge are provided, the Wizard creates the completed bridge model as well as the construction stage models.
midas Civil provides linear and nonlinear structural analysis capabilities. A large collection of finite elements has been implemented for applications in civil and building structures. The program’s efficient analysis algorithms yield exceptional versatility and accurate results appropriate for practical design applications.Analysis Details
The post-processor can automatically create load combinations in accordance with specified design standards. Changing the type of display can produce various forms of graphic output. Practically all the results can be animated, namely, mode shapes, time history results of displacements and member forces, dynamic analysis results and static analysis results.
midas Civil also provides results that are compatible with MS Excel, which enables the user to review all analysis and design results systematically.
Midas Civil provides various design check and load rating features including:
Eurocode & AASHTO LRFDBending, shear & torsional strengthsComposite plate girder designMember forces & stresses for eachconstruction stage and max & min stress summationsAutomatic generation of load combinations in accordance with various design codesMS Excel format calculation report
The Ironton-Russell Bridge is a single tower cable-stayed girder bridge. Girders are I-shaped steel plate girders. The girders are of a composite system with the concrete deck. The cable system is a dual-plane system consisting of 70 cables and the tower is made up of reinforced concrete
Completed in 2000, Young Jong is World’s 1st 3D self-anchored suspension bridge. midas Civil software is used for structural analyses of the bridge including response spectrum analysis, eigen value analysis, large displacement analysis, vehicle load analysis
The 1,479 m Long crossing consists of a 125 m long arch bridge over the river, a complex 791m long road and tramway viaduct, and a 302 m long, 40m wide cable-stayed bridge over the railway.
This 120m long steel rail way bridge consists of 2224 beams. midas Civil is used for structural analyses including response spectrum analysis, eigen value analysis and vehicle load optimization
