Pre-Processing / 23 1. Various display options 2. How to provide support at base of a curved bridge deck? 3. How to define moving load to curved bridge? 2 point method is not working. Error is displayed that no element is on the defined lane. 4. How to generate uniform tapering irrespective of the number of segments? 5. How to copy tendon profile of one girder to all other girders? 6. Warnings displayed during analysis that certain load cases have not converged. How to converge all the load cases? 7. How to define more modes of vibration? Only a single mode is shown on performing response spectrum analysis. 8. Why are certain supports/links, though defined in the model are not applied while performing analysis? 9. How to model bearings? How to rotate bearings in case of curved bridge? 10. How to create a composite PSC / RCC section with an unsymmetrical slab? 11. How to import PSC cable profile from AutoCAD drawing? 12. How to use the material properties defined in one model file in any other model file, without defining it again? 13. How to reduce the section capacity to model a cracked section approximately? 14. How to import a section from an AutoCAD *.Dxf file? 15. What are Wood Armer moments? How to view in midas Civil? 16. How is the varying longitudinal stiffness of ballast/concrete bed considered for rail track analysis? 17. How to make a taper from composite T section to composite I ? 18. Why plate thickness is not visible in the model while viewing solid view? 19. What kind of boundary conditions & elements are available in eigenvalue, response spectrum, and time history analysis? 20. How to input surface spring coefficient for underground structure? 21. How to input temperature gradient load for a general or PSC section? 22. How to get concurrent reactions due to moving load? 23. What does the error ‘PSC/Composite type of beam section temperature cannot be applied to section of the element’, imply? p.4 p.6 p.7 P.8 P.9 p.11 p.12 p.13 p.15 p.16 p.18 p.20 p.21 p.22 p.24 p.26 p.27 p.29 p.30 p.32 p.34 p.35 p.36

Analysis / 9 1. What is the difference between rigid link and rigid type elastic link? 2. What is the difference between lane element and cross beam method for vehicular load distribution? When should each be used? 3. How is a truss element and a cable element considered in midas Civil? 4. Why is the pre-stress elastic deformation loss sometimes positive? 5. Why is there a kink while elements activated in different construction stage are connected, when graphically viewing the results? 6. How does the software consider beam property changes with pre-stressing tendon? 7. What is the basis of P- Δ analysis in midas Civil? Secondary moment from P- Δ analysis matches with classical method calculation using actual stress rather failure stress. Why?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
