With ever expanding
knowledge of material and structural behavior comes higher demand from
design codes in terms of efficiency and economy of structural designs.
Additionally, the amount of considerations to be made to satisfy these
requirements and to achieve the necessary level of detail and precision
become increasingly numerous. Moreover, in today’s business attuned
environment, time is one of the most valuable assets. To cater to this
demand we need a powerful tool which addresses all of the above issues.
midas Gen is a one-stop solution for structural engineers which helps
them in every aspect of their work. Focused on buildings and general
structures the software integrates both analysis and design. The
interface has been optimized for quick modeling and assessment of
buildings. midas Gen provides design capabilities using various design
standards reflecting conventional as well as unusual design conditions,
leading to optimal design. The program has been in use for 20 years by
engineers the world over and applied to numerous projects successfully.
It is known to provide convenience, efficiency, versatility and
productivity. This presentation will focus on structural modeling and
design as per the Eurocode specifications for RC building and seismic
design. It will cover both frame as well as slab design. Additionally,
the BIM capable interface of the program, with Revit Structures, will
