Post-Tensioned Beam Bridge – Online Course

SOFiSTiK AG rolled out a free Post-Tensioned Beam Bridge Online Course. The course covers the entire workflow of modelling, analysing and designing a beam bridge. A must watch if you just started using SOFiSTiK FEA for bridge design. And an excellent opportunity to update your knowledge if you are an experienced user already.

Post-Tensioned Beam Bridge

You will learn

  • How to build a beam bridge model from scratch using the parametric modelling in AutoCAD.
  • How to apply loads in SOFiPLUS.
  • How to create tendons using the graphical wizard.
  • How to apply traffic loads using influence lines.
  • How to set up a construction sequence.
  • How to combine loads.
  • How to perform the design of beam elements
  • How to create a Report.

It’s a great course to get familiar with the workflow of SOFiSTiK FEA and bridge design.

A huge Thank You to György Schmidt, who did an amazing job to put this course together.
