Join our Senior Application Engineer, Jean-Pierre Chanard, to learn the advantages of construction stage modeling and analysis using an example of a composite (concrete slab and steel girders) 3 spans bridge.
Construction Stage analysis allows engineers to optimize the structure at any point in its construction, and check that the designed structure will stand during erection time. Contrary to a conventional analysis method, this type of analysis considers changes in geometry, material, and loads during different phases of construction.
In this webinar, you will learn about:
- Creating a physical model of the bridge, a composite 3 span bridge
- Generating an analytical model of the bridge
- Introducing time in the activation phases of the analytical model
- Studying different scenarios
- Checking the robustness against the Canadian code
- Producing deliverables from the 3D model (physical model) such as drawings, geometry reports, quantity reports, and more
