Masonry arch bridge assessment

Question:

Good morning,

I'm a structural engineer from Project Centre Ltd and I'm currently working on the assessment of a masonry double arch bridge.
I would like find out if I could model and analyse the masonry arch bridge by using Midas Civil, if so could you please give me a direction/tutorial on this or a work example will be very helpful.

Thanks and regards


Answer:
Hi,

I am not familiar with the masonry arch bridge assessment. There is no specialized function for this assessment in midas Civil. However, in terms of analysis of the masonry arch bridge, approximate beam element approach or rational plane-stress finite element approach is possible with midas Civil. I am sorry but we have no tutorial for this.

Regards,
DK Lee
