2. mBrace3D, Vehicle Load Optimization (VLO) for Plate Girder Bridges:
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.
3. mBrace3D, Placement Analysis of a Curved, Variable Depth, Single Tub Girder Bridge:
This presentation presents 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.
