Software Option for LUSAS Bridge products

Masonry Bridge Wizard

Generate 2D and 3D continuum models of single and multi-span masonry arch bridges with semi-circular or segmental arches in a fraction of the time it takes to manually model the same structures. 

Create models that include piers and abutments, with or without a skew, using linear or nonlinear materials. 

Once created, models can be further modified to incorporate changes to geometry or material properties, particular foundation conditions, or to assign code specific train or vehicle loads, or custom loading.

The continuum models produced are for "macro modelling" of masonry, where the masonry is considered as a continuous composite material - as opposed to "micro modelling" where each block and each mortar joint is modelled explicitly. The LUSAS concrete cracking and crushing material model may be used to approximate the cracking and crushing behaviour of masonry.
