Optimizing Concrete Reinforcement: The Power of Ansys in a Civil Engineering-Friendly Environment

Simulation is used extensively in civil engineering to analyze the behavior of structures and assess their resistance to various scenarios. This is both a safety and an economic challenge: The structure must be able to withstand all loadings to which it might be subjected during its entire operating life and, at the same time, construction cost must be minimized. Civil engineers typically perform a structural analysis of a concrete structure modeled in shell or plate elements before designing the reinforcement necessary to equilibrate all internal forces.

View this on-demand webinar to learn how a new Ansys civil engineering extension greatly facilitates this crucial task by determining the minimum reinforcement quantities necessary to support all expected (combinations of) loads.
