Demonstrating redundancy for a dual steel box girder system involves in-depth structural analysis and may require enhancements to certain structural details. The benefit is that structures if proven redundant, can be maintained as non-fracture critical. But how to find out if your bridge is redundant or not? Daniel Mariscal will present the Redundancy Evaluation of two twin box flyover structures for the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT). He will explain why he selected Midas FEA for this project and how to apply redundancy analysis in Midas FEA.
