Higher Standard of Bridge Design
midas Civil Software
midas Civil is a Finite Element Analysis software developed by Midas IT, used for bridge analysis and design. midas Civil combines the powerful pre-and post-processing features with an extremely fast solver, which makes bridge modeling and analysis simple, quick, and effective. Also, there are several easy parameter modification tools available that can be used for parametric analysis leading to optimized and economical design.
The user-oriented input/output functions are based on a sophisticated and intuitive User Interface and up-to-date Computer Graphics techniques. They offer excellent facilities and productivity for the modeling and analysis of different types of bridge structures.
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. The Bridge Wizards can create a complete bridge model for you in a blink of an eye and you are able to make any modification to the model to match withthe real structure as much as possible. Other modeling approaches such as CAD import, table format modeling, and code format modeling are also available.
Complete Analysis Options
midas Civil provides linear and nonlinear structural analysis capabilities and is capable of handling different types of analysis. The program’s efficient analysis algorithms yield exceptional versatility and accurate results appropriate for practical design applications.
Powerful Post Processor
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.
Auto Design and Load Rating
midas Civil has powerful design code checking and load rating features. AASHTO LRFD & LRFR, CHBDC CSA, EUROCODE, and other codes are available. The codes are constantly updated to make sure the users can best take advantage of the code checking and rating features in the program. The automatic report generation features give the users an organized and detailed report that includes formulas and code references and it gives the users the confidence in their result.

"Exceptional and Exclusive UI"
What do you like best?
Midas lends a much convenient approach towards design and analysis of structures. The user-friendly interface saves ample time.that is wasted on other platforms by searching for different commands.

"It is overall good software for RCC and PSC bridges"
What do you like best?
The features i like most are
1. Very good GUI, easy to work
2. You can change stiffness factors of an element for certain load cases.
3. Can convert critical moving load case in to static load case for a element

How to Perform Time-dependent Analysis?
Mainly there are two ways to perform the time-dependent analysis. One is the time-step analysis and the other is the age-adjusted method. The age-adjusted method is a simplified one and can consider the long-term effects with only a one-step analysis. Of course, this is an approximate way to consider
Influence line analysis is essential for bridge design. Classical influence line theory for continuous girders goes back to Müller-Breslau in the late 18th century. Currently, iterative analysis is commonly used since this method is rather simple to implement with the displacement methods. Both methods give the same results and we can use either of these methods.
