Capabilities
  • Analyze and rate traffic loading

    • Streamline bridge modeling, analysis, and load-rating for both existing and new bridges with an integrated toolset. Leverage various international design code specifications and rating methodologies for verification.
  • Analyze seismic loading

    • Define seismic excitation with relevant accelerograms or ground motion histories, and perform special tasks in earthquake engineering for increased efficiency and optimal structural performance.
  • Capture roadway geometry and topography

    • Reuse civil data obtained directly from Bentley road products such as GEOPAK, Bentley InRoads, or MXROAD, and import roadway information and ground data from LandXML files.
  • Conduct finite element analysis

    • Combine the advantages of the classical beam theory and the finite element method (FEM) with hybrid FEM modeling.
  • Coordinate multi-discipline bridge teams

    • Exchange project information including bridge geometry, materials, loads, prestressing strand pattern, and shear reinforcement to improve decision making. Streamline engineering content management with real-time collaboration and share, reuse, and repurpose data throughout the bridge lifecycle to minimize risk of design error and construction issues.
  • Design and analyze cable-stayed, suspension, and arch bridges

    • Design and analyze signature bridges of all types, classes, and materials, including cable-stayed, suspension, and arch bridges. Streamline massive analytical tasks and save time with software that can handle challenging engineering designs.
  • Design and analyze concrete bridges

    • Design and analyze concrete bridges of all types, including precast, cast-in-place, reinforced, and post-tensioned. Intelligently manage your data, model parametrically, and automate drawing production to revolutionize the bridge delivery process.
  • Design and analyze steel bridges

    • Model, design, analyze, and rate steel bridges, following several international design standards (RM Bridge), and AASHTO LRFD standards specifications (LEAP Bridge Steel).
  • Design and analyze superstructures and substructures

    • Use a synthesis of geometric modeling, substructure and superstructure analysis, and design in a single information-rich environment to benefit from a comprehensive bridge model.
  • Design bridges for high speed rail (HSR)

    • Evaluate high-speed rail impacts on any bridge with time dependent load, time dependent masses, and non-linear damping devices. Analyze transit events by using train and velocity data. Automatically consider a set of various load trains passing over the bridge at different speeds.
  • Evaluate and employ various erection control methods

    • Consider, in detail, the influence of special construction techniques, and provide exact data on deformation states throughout the erection process. Leverage special construction procedures such as the incremental launching method, cantilever method, in-situ casting, and more.
  • Generate bridge project deliverables

    • Generate detailed reports. Create 3D models and 2D drawings for sections, elevations, and framing plans.
  • Perform static, dynamic, and stability analysis

    • Analyze bridges using response spectrum analysis, time history analysis, or equivalent static load analysis. Perform second-order analysis including structural stability checks.
  • Perform wind buffeting and wind computational fluid dynamics analyses

    • Calculate aerodynamic coefficients and their derivatives for any bridge or pylon cross-section, eliminating the need for wind tunnel tests in preliminary design. Consider the aero-elastic behavior of the structure and the wind loading correlation with wind buffeting analysis on ultra-long span bridges.
  • Sequence construction and phasing

    • Investigate the different stages in stage-wise construction – comparing results, detecting the relevant states, and producing result envelopes for proof checking. Account for creep, shrinkage, and relaxation and solve problems before construction begins.
  • Visualize bridge designs

    • Experience instantaneous 3D visualization of the bridge superstructure and substructure. Visualize designs and rapidly verify modeling input as you work. View in-profile, elevation, and cross-section views with solid and transparent view options to help explore areas with complex geometry.
