midas Civil is a Bridge Design & Analysis software that combines the ease of modeling with exclusive analysis features, making the modeling and designing efficient for engineers. The software provides handy features for simpler bridges and flexibility to deal with complex geometry. It includes various design codes that become very useful for engineers looking for optimized designs. midas Civil will lighten your work and make bridge design more accessible. So, let's explore what your best partner can do for you.
It's important to find trustworthy structural analysis software, especially for engineers, who spend most of their time designing and analyzing structures. They need software that helps them with their day-to-day simple bridges but also facilitates them with complex bridges when the need arises. This is what makes midas Civil the best partner for structural engineers - midas Civil.
Graphical User Interface can be directly linked with an engineer's flexibility to perform modeling and make changes to that. The GUI of midas Civil is designed so a user feels full liberty and ease while performing bridge modeling. The user-oriented input/output functions offer excellent facilities and productivity for the modeling and analysis of various bridge structures ranging from simple to complex ones.
midas Civil provides the user with unlimited and efficient modeling methods for any project. manual modeling? Wizard? Data exchange? Everything can be found in midas Civil. They create nodes and elements, like CAD programs, as a conventional modeling approach. Bridge-oriented features like Bridge Wizards are favorites of bridge engineers. The Bridge Wizards can create a complete bridge model for you in a blink of an eye, and one can make any modification to the model, hence providing full liberty to the engineer. Other efficient approaches are also available, such as CAD import, table format modeling, and code format modeling.
No additional programs are needed. midas Civil performs all the essential analyses required for primary bridges, like moving Load Analysis, Construction Stage Analysis, Eigen Value analysis, and Linear and Non-Linear Analysis. But when the need arises for high-end analysis for complex bridges like Buckling Analysis, Cable Force Tuning, Rail Structure Interaction, and Settlement Analysis, that can also be easily performed in the software. Therefore, providing a stable platform to bridge engineers for their daily use to their high-end use.
Result Interpretation Done Right
The post-processor can automatically create load combinations by specified design standards. Changing the type of display can produce various forms of graphic output. The results can be practically animated, like node shapes, time history, and static analysis results. midas Civil also provides results that are compatible with MS Excel, which enables result extraction easily, and the user can review all analysis and design results systematically.
Auto Design and Load Rating
midas Civil has inbuilt design code checking and load rating features. AASHTO LRFD & LRFR, CHBDC CSA, EUROCODE, and other codes are available. The codes are constantly updated to ensure 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, which gives users confidence in their results and becomes their best partner in bridge design.
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.
What do you like best?
Various bridge design codes are incorporated in the software both local and international codes. technical support is quick and reliable. Calculations are detailed and can be counterchecked easily through manual calculation. Provides a lot of free seminars.

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.
How to Model the Girder and Deck Connection in Composite Bridge?
With the help of Tarcisio Barreto Celestino and Antonio Bobet, our MIDAS Expert Osvaldo Paiva Magalhães Vitali took on a new approach using midas GTS NX on tunnels with complex ground and loading conditions. In their recent...
