MIDAS GEN has a new interface with MIDAS GTS NX, 3D geotechnical software, which allows the import/ export of the structure and results for the calculation of soil springs considering more real field conditions.

The training will cover 2 parts.
1. The first part will cover the process of generating the soil springs in Gen based on results of the structure in GTS NX. We will show the export structure and reactions to GTS NX for soil structure interaction, and then import of soil springs to Gen created from the results in GTS NX.
2. The second part will cover a comparison between the same model under 2 different boundary conditions including key results and optimal design of steel sections. The comparison will be between fixed boundary condition and soil springs created by interaction with GTS NX.
