Generally a load rating is the bridge's ability to carry the live load for design and allowable legal vehicles, overloads, and determine weight postings. But how to perform the load rating of Curved and Complex Geometry Composite Steel Bridges in Midas Civil? Tom Less will expand the knowledge of Two-Dimensional/Grillage Modeling and Three-Dimensional Modeling and show how he sets up the inputs like rating design code, rating parameters, unbraced length, fatigue parameter, etc., for bridge rating design.
