3 Why midas FEA ? 10 Reasons for using midas FEA Functions What others can’tmidas FEA offersOutcomes1. Total Solution in Civil EngineeringThey 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 OneThey 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 AnalysisAll Analysis Functions in One midas FEA.3. Intuitive 2D/3D ModelingThey 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 MethodsLearn program skills fast and create complex models easily.4. Robust Auto-meshingMeshing 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 MesherComprehensive detail modeling capability5. Various Material modelsThey 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’tmidas FEA offersOutcomes6. Excellent Analysis PerformanceThey can’t provide Fast, Robust and Efficient analysis technology. Fastest analysis speed Linear Static Analysis of 64,000 elements = 649 SecAny complex models can be solved in a matter of hours (A solution in 24 Hrs)7. Effective Result VisualizationThey can’t deliver accurate and clear output results to users with simple graphic presentations. Various graphic visualization Animation capture capability Flying View Virtual Transformationmidas FEA provides very powerful and effective analysis report.8.
