Canadian Highway Bridge Design Code (CSA-S6-14) for Computational Analysis and Design



Structural analysis and design using computer program has become common practice in bridge engineering. However, many limitations and inconvenient interface decrease engineer’s efficiency and result in excessively conservative numbers. Moreover, lack of proper Canadian features such as most up to date design code, material, section, and vehicle database caused frustration for engineers in Canada.

With newly developed design features per CSA-S6-14 code, midas Civil suggests new paradigm for bridge engineering in Canada. All-in-one bridge engineering solution and user-intuitive interface help engineers to establish convenient process for typical projects and increase efficiency. At the same time, freedom to easily modify your model from wizard model and apply necessary analysis will excel engineers to handle any challenging project with ease. From Modeling your bridge to design in accordance to CSA-S6-14 code, you will experience how easily you can finish your project within one platform.



The specifics covered in this session will include:

- Simple PSC bridge analysis and design per CSA-S6-14
- Curved Steel Composite Bridge analysis and design per CSA-S6-14
- Rail Interaction features and application for light rail Project and other rail bridge project.
- Bridge Rehabilitation projects
- Seismic Analysis (Push-over analysis, Time-History analysis, Response Spectrum analysis)

Who would benefit from this session :

In this session, Attendees will benefit from learning most effective and up to date process for computational analysis and design per CSA-S6-14. From modeling to producing project report within one platform, you will discover how to improve your process for daily tasks. Also, you will get to experience midas Civil’s various application such as light rail projects, bridge rehabilitation, and comprehensive seismic analysis.
