Post-Wizard Modification

 

Post-Wizard Modification


midas Civil can let you modify your model freely after creating the model with the wizard. From skew to bridge widening, you can change your model confidently and take advantage of convenient wizards simultaneously. Various modification methods and visual representations let you handle modification and get out of the black box.

Convenient Wizard

 

Convenient Wizard


midas Civil provides various wizard functions to help the user model their structure model quickly and easily. Base Structure wizard has some choices for typical and basic structural shapes such as Beams, Columns, Archs, Frames(Grillages), Trusses, or Plate faces. There are special wizard functions in midas Civil for various bridge types such as PSC, Steel Composite, segmental bridges.

Flexible Modeling


midas Civil supports conventional model generation using nodes and elements and other means of generating models via data conversion. Data exchange with the DXF file of Microstation or AutoCAD is possible. Entire model data can also be defined or generated in text format, creating a *.MCT file.

Featured webinar for irregular bridges

I-94 Lafayette Connector PRE & Post-Tensioned: Concrete U-Girders
The I-49 Lafayette Connector is a future 5.5-mile segment of limited-access highway that will extend I-49 from I-10 to the Lafayette Regional Airport. It is a critical transportation link for Lafayette and the state as a whole.
Elkhorn Drop Ramp Structure Lessons Learned
Percy Penafiel, P.E. from Nevada Department of Transportation, will be going over the lessons and process of the Elkhorn Drop Ramp Structure. When it comes to complex geometry many engineers struggle while using grillage approach or using plate modeling.
Seismic Design of Concrete Bridges
Kyle Turner, P.E. from Michael Baker International, presented the lesson about Seismic Design of Concrete Bridges. There are differences between building a new bridge and widening or replacing an existing bridge. When you build a new bridge, there are more alternative options and fewest constraints.

Construction Stage Analysis of Composite Girder Bridges in midas Civil
This article will walk you through the difference between using 3D FEA tools with construction stage analysis like midas Civil vs. simple design programs or analysis programs without construction stage analysis like MDX, STAAD Pro, LEAP Steel, LEAP Concrete, Conspan, etc.
Irregular Bridges
There are times when engineers would have to design and evaluate bridge structures that fall outside of the AASHTO design guideline. Therefore, when do we define a structure as irregular? How is evaluating an irregular bridge different from evaluating a regular bridge? How to minimize errors during the construction of irregular bridges?
Warping Stress in Midas
In typical engineering practices, engineers are used to having six degrees of freedom (DOFs) for modeling and analysis, three for rotations and three for translation. However, additional advanced beam elements can include other DOFs to represent the warping of an open thin-walled cross section.
