Design of a continuous composite bridge
In the video recording from our webinar, you can see a global model of a bridge prepared in SCIA Engineer.
A complex model – composite cast-in-situ slab and precast beams, a skew bridge supported by elastomer bridge bearings. Precast beams are indirectly supported by cast-in-situ diaphragms.
We often face a question if it is possible to analyze such a structure in IDEA StatiCa Beam? The answer is pretty simple - Yes, it is!
Let’s focus on a critical member (beam) that can be modeled, loaded and designed in this application. You can also choose the load cases which lead to extreme internal forces and import them to IDEA StatiCa!
