The MIDAS team, develops and distributes engineering software, has released an update to midas Gen 2019, is a general-purpose structural analysis and optimal design system. The intuitive user Interface, contemporary computer graphics and powerful solver are some of the highlights of midas Gen.
About midas Gen. Modern structural design codes require that a diverse set of analyses be performed to meet local design standards. Although many structural software programs have been developed to aid with these various analyses, they are often incapable of handling every analysis type that is required. This has caused many engineers to rely on multiple specialized programs and systems.
One of midas Gen’s most powerful advantages is its ability to handle the full spectrum of structural analysis types. midas Gen’s capabilities include: construction stage analysis for the study of time dependent material properties and construction sequences, p-delta analysis for the calculation of secondary moments and deflections, buckling analysis for calculation of failure modes and compressive strengths limits, and material nonlinear analysis for displacement limit checks.
midas Gen is also equipped with advanced functions for seismic analysis. It is equipped to perform pushover analysis as well as conventional response spectrum analysis and high-end time history analysis. Thus it is the software of choice for structural engineers in seismic regions. Lastly, you can apply midas Gen not only for buildings, but also all types of structures such as industrial plants, stadiums, gymnasiums, airports, and social infrastructures. midas Gen’s remarkable analysis versatility ensures that you will be able to handle any type of structural design project that you will encounter. Many leading engineering firms have used midas Gen to expand the scope of the types of projects they pursue. It has also been used as their primary tool for structural analysis, thus enabling them to efficiently provide uniform training for engineers. This has made it much easier for engineers to work together on a single universal design platform as opposed to several specialized and incompatible programs.
