model a simple supported beam 

Question:


Do you have any user manual or user guide for general purpose? First do not get into more specific domains like cable-stayed bridge, or bridges with integral abutments or special constraint introduction. I need a general manual to be able to model a simple supported beam with user defined local axes, user defined general geometrical properties (A, I, J), user defined isotropic material (E, mu) and user defined support conditions under user defined load cases. Is their any load combination facilities? Envelop facilities?

Many thanks.

Regards,

Answer:Hello,

Please refer to below online manual paths for your questions.
1. A simple supported beam with user defined local axis: [Boundary > Node Local Axis]
2. User defined general geometrical properties: [Properties > Section > Section Properties >Section Type> “Value tab”]
3. User defined isotropic material: [Properties > Material > Material Properties > Type of Material > Select Type (steel/ concrete) > None]
4. User defined support conditions under user defined load cases: [Analysis > Analysis Control > Boundary Change Assignment to Load Cases/Analyses]

And for the basic tutorial, please refer the “Getting Started” file via [C:\Program Files\MIDAS\midas Civil\Manual\Getting Started].
Thank you.
