3 Why midas FEA ? 10 Reasons for using midas FEA Functions
What others can’t midas FEA offers Outcomes 1. Total Solution in Civil Engineering They are not designed to be used in Civil-oriented problems. 󰋯 Concrete / Steel / Composite / Cable Stayed Bridges 󰋯 Pier/ Abutment / Deck / Anchor Detail Analysis 󰋯 Plant Structures (Dam, LNG Tank Structure, Steel Reactor, etc) 󰋯 Marine and Offshore (Breakwater, Quay Wall, Tetrapod) 󰋯 and much more… Finally, a perfect nonlinear & detail analysis software has come to civil engineers! 2. All in One They are specialized for certain analysis functions. 󰋯 Static Analysis 󰋯 Construction Stage Analysis 󰋯 Modal Analysis 󰋯 Linear Buckling Analysis 󰋯 Contact Analysis 󰋯 Heat Transfer Analysis 󰋯 Fatigue Analysis 󰋯 Reinforcement Analysis 󰋯 Cracking Analysis 󰋯 Transient / Frequency / Spectrum Response Analysis 󰋯 Material / Geometry Nonlinearity Analysis 󰋯 Interface Nonlinearity Analysis All Analysis Functions in One midas FEA. 3. Intuitive 2D/3D Modeling They can’t model complex 3D models; simplification required. 󰋯 Task-Oriented User Interface 󰋯 Geometry Based Modeling 󰋯 Simple and Quick Reinforcement Definition 󰋯 Various Automatic Interface Element Generation Methods Learn program skills fast and create complex models easily. 4. Robust Auto-meshing Meshing takes up a long time, and details can’t be modeled. 󰋯 2D/3D Auto-mesh and Map-Mesh Generation 󰋯 Loop Mesher 󰋯 Tetra Mesher 󰋯 Grid Mesher 󰋯 Map Mesher 󰋯 Delaunay Mesher 󰋯 Hybrid Mesher Comprehensive detail modeling capability 5. Various Material models They have a limitation in element types and material models. 󰋯 All required material models and element types in Civil Engineering are provided. Parametric Study of different material behaviors

4 Why midas FEA ? 10 Reasons for using midas FEA Functions
What others can’t midas FEA offers Outcomes 6. Excellent Analysis Performance They can’t provide Fast, Robust and Efficient analysis technology. 󰋯 Fastest analysis speed 󰋯 Linear Static Analysis of 64,000 elements = 649 Sec Any complex models can be solved in a matter of hours   (A solution in 24 Hrs) 7. Effective Result Visualization They can’t deliver accurate and clear output results to users with simple graphic presentations. 󰋯 Various graphic visualization 󰋯 Animation capture capability 󰋯 Flying View 󰋯 Virtual Transformation midas FEA provides very powerful and effective analysis report. 8. Practical output functions They can’t provide practical result data to be used in design. 󰋯 Various specialized plots 󰋯 Result data tables 󰋯 Useful diagrams and graphs 󰋯 Report 󰋯 Force/Moment diagrams 󰋯 On-curve Diagram 󰋯 Settlement Profile 󰋯 Probe Result 󰋯 Crack Pattern & Element Status 󰋯 Extract results User can check any desired results with minimum efforts. 9.
