MIDAS Civil

Integrated solution system for bridge
and civil engineering

Combining structural analysis capabilities with civil engineering specific stage analysis, pushover analysis and nonlinear time history features, MIDAS Civil provides the necessary tools for advanced modeling, analysis and design for the bridge engineer. Features include RC, steel, PSC bridge design, suspension and cab le-stayed bridge analysis, construction analysis and heat of hydration analysis, just to name a few.

Applications

Reinforced concrete bridge: slab br., frame br., PSC beam br
Composite structural steel rr.: box/plate girder br., steel deck br
PSC box bridge: FCM, ILM, MSS, FSM, PSM
Long span bridge: suspension, cable stayed & arch bridges
Heat of hydration for mass conc.: PSC box br., abutment, pier, breakwater
Underground structures: tunnel, subway, municipal service facilities
Plant structures: tank, pressure vessel, transmission tower, power plant
Public facilities: airport, dam, harbor

Specialty bridge structure wizards and analysis

Common structural models such as trusses, arches and frames can be readily created using the structure wizard. Structural bridge modeling wizards also minimize the time required to model more complex bridge structures, such as a suspension bridge or a cable-stayed bridge. This gives users the opportunity to generate accurate models and perform analyses with many different design alternatives in a much shorter time frame.
