1. Improvements in Pushover Analysis


1.1 Export Moment-Curvature Idealized Model from midas GSD to Civil
Moment-Curvature (M- Lumped) type hinge properties can be automatically generated based on the idealized moment-curvature curve obtained in midas GSD. For P-M and P-M-M interaction type hinges, a number of Moment-Curvature curves with various axial forces can be imported at once. GSD Imported Type skeleton curve is newly added to simulate the reduction of flexural capacity.

1.2 Display Ultimate Strain in Concrete and Rebar in GSD


Ultimate Compressive Strain in Concrete (cu) and Ultimate Tensile Strain in Rebar (su) are separately plotted in Moment Curvature Curve of GSD.

1.3 Display Ultimate Displacement in Pushover Capacity Curve


Ultimate displacement which is 80% of the peak base shear force are now plotted in the capacity curve of pushover analysis. The ultimate displacement will be required to determine the capacity for the global assessment of the structure.

1.4 Chord Rotation Check Table


Verify the chord rotation with ductility demand (D) for the local verification as per Eurocode and AASHTO LRFD specification. Following values can be verified in the Chord Rotation Check table. - pd (Plastic Rotation Demand), L (Distance from the plastic joint to the point of zero moment), Lp (Hinge Length) - y (Yield Rotation), y (Yield Curvature), u (Ultimate Curvature), pu (Plastic Rotation Capacity), D (Ductility Demand)

1.5 Assign Pushover Hinge at the Center of Hinge Length


Hinge length ratio can be defined by the user for the region which reaches plastic moment for Moment-Curvature (M- Lumped) hinge definition. The user can select whether pushover hinges will be assigned to the center of the hinge length or I & j-end of an element.

2. Improvements in Soil Structure Interaction Analysis 2.1 Improvements in Multi-linear Type Inelastic Hinge Properties
Perfect plastic primary curve of multilinear type hysteresis models can be defined in Inelastic Hinge Properties. In the old version, in order to simulate the perfect plastic behavior, the user needed to enter the very small increment of force. Compression-only and Tension-only primary curve can be defined. Scale factor for displacement and force in multi-linear type hysteresis model is added.

2.2 Improvements in General Link Properties


6x6 matrix for Spring and Linear Dashpot type General Link can now be defined.

5. Time Dependent Material Properties as per Australian Specification


Creep/Shrinkage and Compressive Strength can be considered as per both AS/RTA5100.5-2011 and AS3600-2009. After performing construction stage analysis, midas civil provides the following member forces separately for each construction stage: Dead Load, Tendon Primary, Tendon Secondary, Creep Primary, Creep Secondary, Shrinkage Primary, Shrinkage Secondary, Summation

6. Moving Load Analysis as per Australian Specification


Moving load analysis as per AS 5100.2 is newly implemented. Standard vehicles (W80, A160, M1600, S1600) and user defined vehicles (Truck/Lane, Train, Permit Truck) are supported. Accompanying lane factor can be automatically considered. Concurrent forces and reactions can be checked in Results by Max Value Item table.

7. Improvements in BS Moving Load


Permit vehicle can be defined in BS moving load code for generating various number of wheels in one axle for special operations. Permit vehicle can be combined with other vehicles in BD37/01 excepting for HA&HB (Auto) in Moving Load Case. User defined HA, HB, and HA&HB vehicles are newly added for considering various type of vehicles and combination with permit vehicle. For user-defined HA&AB (Auto) vehicle, HA lane factor option is added and the exponential field 0.1 for 50<L<1600m loading length can now be modified by the user.

10. Improvements in Local Direction Force Sum


When bridge decks are modeled using plate elements and main girders are modeled using beam elements, resultant forces can be calculated in Local Direction Force Sum. In the old version, the resultant forces were obtained only for the plate elements or solid elements only. In the new version, resultant forces can be obtained for the bridges composed of Beam (deck) + Beam (girder) and Plate(deck) + Beam (girder). Local direction force sum can be obtained in any construction stages. In the old version, Local Direction Force Sum was activated only in Post CS.
