Resultant Section in case of Curved Box Girder Bridges

Question:

Hello Sir/Madam,
I am currently working on box girder bridges as my MTech Project work VNIT and using Academic Version of Midas Civil.
To obtain longitudinal analysis of box girder it was easy by resultant section for straight box girder but i am not able to do resultant section for curved box girder bridges to obtain longitudinal analysis. I have attached the file. Please can you help me to obtain resultant section for curved box girder bridge. I have done but not getting smooth curve in results of bending moment and shear force diagram.
Thank you.

Answer:

Dear Sir,

We can make use of the polygon select option for a full plate model of a curved box girder. Please find attached a video on how to create resultant force sections and obtain the resultant force diagrams using midas Civil. 

May you have any further queries, please write to us a new ticket.

Thank you.
