ILM Bridge Model Wizard


  • ILM Bridge Model Wizard automatically generates the analysis model of a PSC (post-tensioned concrete) bridge by construction stages, constructed by ILM (Incremental Launching Method). The Wizard operates on the basis of entering simple variables. It automatically generates the model data required for a construction stage analysis including the tendon placement and section definition. The construction stages are separately defined by "ILM Bridge Stage Wizard" or "Define Construction Stage".
  • The Advanced Applications manual illustrates the use of Wizard and the procedure for an ILM bridge analysis.

The input data in ILM Bridge Wizard are saved in the corresponding dialog boxes once the Wizard is executed normally. We can recall the input data after closing the Wizard and subsequently check, modify and re-execute the Wizard. In addition, Wizard data can be saved as a file with .wzd extension, which can be recalled even after closing the program.



From the main menu, select [Structure] tab > [PSC Bridge] group > [PSC Box Bridge] > [ILM Bridge Model]
