- Why infill has such a significant impact on bridge load carrying capacity;
- How the soil and backing models used by LimitState:RING work, and their range of applicability;
- How the soil model used in the software has been validated, for both single and multi-span masonry arch bridges;
- How to decide when an intrusive investigation of the infill material is warranted, and what types of investigation have been found to be effective.
During the webinar, LimitState:RING will be used to solve a range of practical examples and illustrate how the software can be applied in practice.
Who should attend?
The webinar will be of interest to practicing civil and structural engineers who assess, or have a responsibility for, single and multi-span masonry arch overbridge structures. Current and potential future users of LimitState:RING are all welcome.
What’s different about LimitState:RING?
LimitState:RING is designed from the ground up with the needs of professional engineers in mind. It benefits from an intuitive user interface which allows users to model a wide range of arch structures, including multi-span structures and bridges with local defects such as mortar loss and weak masonry.
Furthermore, LimitState:RING uses rigorous mathematical optimization to directly identify a wide range of potential modes of response, including those involving hinging, sliding and ring separation.
