Allplan Bridge 2020

New generation of bridge design software

With Allplan Bridge, a completely new platform has been created that is designed for the simplest operation and efficient workflows. By using a common bridge model instead of two separate ones for structural analysis and detailing, interdisciplinary collaboration is improved. The parametric model and the extensive automation of work steps dramatically reduces the time required for extremely time-consuming and error-prone design changes. Allplan Bridge is a new generation BIM solution that will change the way bridge projects are designed and executed.

Advantages of the Allplan Bridge Solution

Model creation without compromise

Allplan Bridge has been developed by recognized bridge experts. The 3D parametric model description considers the road layout, bridge alignment and required cross-sections, making model configuration quick and efficient. Complex geometries including double-curved alignment and variable cross-sections can be created easily. The user only needs to define typical cross-sections and Allplan Bridge will accurately calculate all cross-section variants in accordance with the defined table(s) or/and formula(s).

Prestressing made simple

Allplan Bridge makes it easy to model a wide range of types of pre-stressing: with immediate or later bond, internal and external, longitudinal, transverse and vertical, as well as with non-standard geometry. Based on user-defined 3D points, the program automatically generates the geometry of a tendon along the bridge structure.

Planning stressing sequences in Allplan Bridge

A stressing sequence can be defined for each tendon specified in the model. Stressing, wedge slip, and releasing are available actions. These actions are carried out at the begin of the tendon, at the end, or at both sides simultaneously. To optimize the management of tendon stressing, the sequences of stressing actions are stored as named “stress groups.

Referencing standard profiles

Standardized and repeatedly arranged cross-section parts such as longitudinal stiffeners in steel and composite sections can be easily placed.

Integration of the fourth dimension

The time as fourth dimension is considered when specifying the construction process. Amongst other things it is possible to define and compare different schedules for the same bridge structure.

Technical preview - Analysis: Calculation of cross section values

The calculation of cross-section values is an essential step in the generation of an analysis model. The calculation supports all types of sections with an arbitrary geometry.

Save time with parametric object placement

Objects from the Allplan Engineering library can be referenced in Allplan Bridge 2019 to add further details such as lamp posts or anchor devices of tendons to the bridge model.

Convenient operation

Unique parametric control enables quick and efficient management of the inevitable changes that occur during the design process saving both time and money. Working with Allplan Bridge is very convenient and specifically tailored to the requirements of bridge engineering.

Changes made in no time at all

Allplan Bridge helps you to manage the inevitable changes that occur during the design process. The parametric model description is an ideal base for adapting design changes. The modifications are incorporated only at their origin and all other linked members are automatically updated.

Smooth data exchange

Integrating road data used for road/bridge alignment is easily achieved via Allplan’s open BIM platform Bimplus. The bridge engineer must only take over the road data and can immediately start with the bridge design. Once the design is completed, the parametric model can be transferred in Allplan Engineering and to analysis software.

Intelligent Database 

Allplan Bridge benefits from a built-in database that is continuously logging modifications as the project progresses. This ensures that the input is never lost.

From model to time planning

The parametric bridge model generated in Allplan Bridge can be subdivided into individual construction elements. These can be transferred to Allplan Bimplus and linked with time-specific attributes.

Technical support from bridge experts

ALLPLAN’s bridge design experts have over 30 years’ experience supporting engineers worldwide. ALLPLAN’s clients can benefit from our technical experts providing comprehensive consultancy, training and support.
