MDX & MIDAS for Steel Bridge Design

2018-11-06 15.00 [MIDAS] MDX _ MIDAS for steel bridge design




MIDAS team's been looking for ways to further improve our midas Civil users' experiences in steel bridge design. 

We acknowledge that MDX is one of the most widely used software for steel bridge design and some of our users at one point have used or currently use MDX. Many of our clients asked what the difference between MDX and midas Civil is and if some of the limitations of MDX can be handled more efficiently in midas Civil. Therefore, we would like to show a comparison between MDX and midas Civil. This session will help you understand how to utilize either or both software to improve the accuracy, reliability, and efficiency of steel bridge design.
