Tunnel Design Software

Increase Your Productivity Up To 50%

Purpose built tools, and simplified collaboration, for more efficient project delivery

WHAT IS OPENTUNNEL DESIGNER?

OpenTunnel Designer is the first and only purpose-built software for tunnel modeling and design. Get the right tools for the job and say goodbye to unnecessary rework and time delays with all team members now working in one intuitive application.

True Tunnel Design Software

No more coding and scripting! Increase productivity with automated modeling tools to create specific objects and information for tunnel infrastructure in one application!

Easy Multidiscipline Collaboration

Share and consume project data across stakeholders in a common data environment. Easily exchange information with Leapfrog, PLAXIS, OpenRoads, OpenRail, OpenBridge, and ProStructures, for a single source of truth that is always up to date preventing error, rework, and costly delays.

All-In-One Workflow with PLAXIS

Create your model in OpenTunnel Designer and generate an analytical model in PLAXIS with a click of a button. The all-in-one workflow provides more time to comprehensively analyze projects for optimum design, safety, and performance.

  • Incorporate Data
  • Incorporate All Your Data

    Make better decisions from the start of your project with the ability to combine, organize, and manage geotechnical and existing conditions data faster without sacrificing accuracy. Consume soil strata and linear infrastructure data with ease. Reference road and rail corridors, and bridge structures in your OpenTunnel Designer model and quickly import soil meshes with IFC versions 4.0 and 4.3.

     
  • Model and Simulate
  • Model and Simulate Tunnel Construction

    Simplify your design process with native modeling tools. Model the full excavation shape, excavation tracks, and the tunnel lining and reinforcement for conventional and mechanized tunnels. Save valuable design time, as your model updates automatically to any change made in the tunnel template or alignment geometry.

     
  • Perform Geotechnical Analysis
  • Perform Geotechnical Analysis

    Maximize productivity and save time by creating multiple analytical models in minutes not days. Simply specify stations for the cross section as the basis of your 2D analytical model or send entire tunnels from your 3D BIM model to PLAXIS with the push of a button, no coding required.

     
  • Model Tunnel Interior Objects
  • Model Tunnel Interior Objects

    Model interior objects that are to be extruded along the tunnel length or placed as cells along a specified path, such as sidewalks, ducts, cable trays and more. See them automatically reflected in your visualizations, plan production, and quantities reports, for simplified clash detection and reduced risk of costly onsite rework.
  • Model and Detail
  • Model and Detail Rebar Reinforcement

    Save time and rework as you model and detail the rebar reinforcement for the tunnel lining. Reference your OpenTunnel lining model in ProConcrete and see changes automatically reflected in the reinforcement data and deliverables based on the tunnel lining geometry changes.

     
  • Tunnel Drawings and Reports
  • Tunnel Drawings and Reports

    Streamline your plan production process. Plan, profiles, and cross-section drawings can easily be created using OpenTunnel Designer’s powerful drawing production tools. Keep your projects on track with tunnel specific reports based on the latest changes for up-to-date accurate costing and quantities.
