midas FEA NX

Advanced Analysis for Localized Zones in Bridge and Building Structures


midas FEA NX is the advanced finite element analysis tool for civil and structural engineering applications. It can model and analyze localized zones using 2D and 3D elements and perform refined method analysis. Midas FEA NX is essential for complex geometry and its advanced solver and analysis visualization is used by many in the industry to prove structural redundancy. Its ability to perform nonlinear analysis, dynamic time history analysis, geotechnical analysis, concrete cracking analysis and more, allows for in-depth and highly accurate structural analysis.

What do you like best?

midas FEA NX software was specially developed for structural engineering and has unique functions include construction stage analysis, creep, and post-tensioning. I had to consider all these effects together with a project with solid elements, and there were not many choices other than midas FEA NX software. The analysis process and results were both satisfactory and reliable. Finally, the 3D modeler is relatively easy to use and one of my favorite tools.

How to Perform Time-Dependent Analysis

How to Perform Time-dependent Analysis?

Mainly there are two ways to perform the time-dependent analysis. One is the time-step analysis and the other is the age-adjusted method. The age-adjusted method is a simplified one and can consider the long-term effects with only a one-step analysis. Of course, this is an approximate way

Influence Line Analysis for Continuous Girders

Influence line analysis is essential for bridge design. Classical influence line theory for continuous girders goes back to Müller-Breslau in the late 18th century. Currently, iterative analysis is commonly used since this method is rather simple to implement with the displacement methods. Both methods give the same results and we can use either of these methods.
