Auto-mesh Feature for Modeling Complex Structures

Unlike bridges, general civil engineering structures often have complex shapes. Creating finite element models for these complex shapes can be time-consuming as it involves considering element connectivity. However, when the Auto-mesh feature is applied, it automatically generates the element mesh, taking into account connectivity with adjacent elements. This significantly reduces the time required for finite element modeling tasks. Additionally, the Auto-mesh feature provides both triangular and quadrilateral elements, assisting designers in creating high-quality element meshes as needed.

Various Specialized Analysis Functions for Civil Structures

MIDAS CIVIL NX provides specialized analysis functions for bridges. In particular, it offers an environment where all safety checks for analysis by construction phase can be performed. It also allows you to perform a variety of structural analysis and design tasks tailored to the needs of designers, such as thermal deformation analysis, large deformation analysis, and nonlinear material analysis, all in one program. Each analysis function can be carried out through GUI, allowing you to intuitively configure analysis conditions and perform analysis, significantly reducing working time.

Seismic Analysis and Design

Through the seismic performance evaluation, we calculate bridges' capacity and demand performance, providing a detailed seismic performance assessment report that incorporates nonlinear section analysis and seismic analysis results. Precise analysis of bridge structures considering the nonlinearity of foundation separation devices is possible through dynamic boundary nonlinear analysis. The pushover analysis function allows for the evaluation of the resistance capacity of the structure after yielding, comparing it with the required seismic response. It considers the nonlinear characteristics of materials in components, predicts the inelastic behavior of components, and performs inelastic time history analysis to understand the seismic response characteristics of the structure.
