Webinar: What's Inside Matters!
Who should watch?
The webinar will be of interest to practicing civil and structural engineers who assess, or have a responsibility for, single and multi-span masory arch overbridge structures. Current and potential future users of LimitState:RING are all welcome.
- 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 is used to solve a range of practical examples and illustrate how the software can be applied in practice.
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 nighing, sliding and ring separation.
