3. mBrace3D, Placement Analysis of a Curved, Variable Depth, Single Tub Girder Bridge
This presentation explains the modelling and deck placement analysis of a curved, variable depth, single tub girder pedestrian bridge recently built in Houston, TX. It illustrates the parametric modelling capacities of the software and shows how mBrace3D is well suited for this type of complex analyses.
6. mBrace3D, Case Study of a Curved Plate Girder Bridge - Comparison with other FEA Software Packages
A four-girder, two-span continuous plate girder bridge with skewed supports is modelled in mBrace3D. Envelope moments as well as support reactions are compared with other FEA software packages (DESCUS I, STAAD, CSiBridge and ANSYS).
