3D finite element models have become the industry standard for segmental bridge engineering. These 3D finite element software solve the complex numerical problems by setting up, solving and visualizing
the solutions. When using these tools, there are universally established steps and processes to
complete the model: superstructure and substructure modeling,reviewing the moments and shear forces, construction stage analysis, range of allowable stresses, serviceability checks and long term effects, to name just a few. This new series will focus on what engineers need to consider while using a 3D finite element software for designing segmental bridges.
MIDAS IT has accomplished impracticable tasks, overcoming the difficult environment of the CAE industry in Korea. By using engineering simulation technology based on our own techniques through high-tech graphics, we have been developing as the biggest company that offers CAE software solution to the world.
