- 9:00 am - 10:00 am UTC
- 10:00 am - 11:00 am CET
Registration is now closed. Visit the webinars page to view this and other webinars on our YouTube channel.
- How railway loading is modelled using LimitState:RING;
- How to model characteristic features of railway masonry arch bridges, such as backing and voids;
- About recent laboratory tests carried out on railway masonry arch bridges;
- Why modelling real railway loading vehicles / axle configurations can be important;
During the webinar, LimitState:RING will be used to solve a range of practical examples used to 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 railway masonry arch bridges. 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.
