1. mBrace3D, Refined Analyses for Curved Steel Bridges:

This presentation summarizes why advanced FEA is the preferred analysis method for curved steel bridges, and how mBrace3D can help bridge designors and erectors capture the "true" bridge behavior.

2. mBrace3D, Vehicle Load Optimization (VLO):

This presentation shows the pseudo-code for the calculation of the influence surfaces and vehicle load optimization algorithms within mBrace3D, and illustrates the results of the live load analysis for the reference continuous, curved plate girder bridge described in NSBA Design Example 3.
