Two cell box Girder

Question:

Dear Midas 

We know that midas civil, can  check the section for torsion. Torsion reinforcement can be input in "section manager_reinforcement". 

Could you clarify, if the box is a double cell, the input is also similar ? and midas check the torsional capacity based on two cell ?

Would be very nice, if you can share any material related  to manual cross-verification of the model value.


Thanks and Regards



Answer:

Hi,

Please let me know the standard on which you want to check torsion capacity like Eurocode, AASHTO.

Thanks for reply. 

As per Eurocode.

Hi,

I am sorry for the late response. Eurocode recommends two methods for solid cross-sections and box sections as shown below. However, only the method for solid cross-sections is implemented.  Thus, two cell box girder cannot be checked properly with midas Civil. We will try to implement the method for box section in the future release.
