We rely on a global network of roads, rails, power lines, pipelines, canals and ports for our food, goods and energy. Developing countries are seeing a boom in infrastructure construction as they join the world market, while developed countries are investing heavily in replacing structures that are now tens or even hundreds of years old.
Simulation allows civil engineers to model the strength and life span of bridges, tunnels, dams and other infrastructure virtually. Huge megaprojects can be analyzed and inspected through their digital twin before a single shovel load is dug. Our new e-book shows some of the applications of simulation in infrastructure engineering, with real examples and papers from our customers.
