Midas Live load discrepancy for curved bridge

Question:

Hi,


I notice that the LL BM does not appear right for curved bridge as defined in the model. Please could you let me know what could the possible issue be? I note that there is a high peak load.

Answer:Hello,

As you already know, in midas Civil when moving loads are assigned in a grillage model, we have to select the transverse distribution as cross beams. In a bridge with curvature, the spacing between the transverse elements could significantly affect the results. This spacing was reduced for the span with unexpected results and now, the bending moments are appropriate.
