Helping to Shape Bridges
in a better way
What is Allplan Bridge?
Allplan Bridge is a powerful parametric BIM solution for bridge engineers, combining all phases of bridge design from highly detailed model creation, including prestressing tendons, to the integration of the construction process, structural analysis with code-based design, and drawing production, in one solution.
- Tailored solutions for different bridge types, such as precast girder bridges, and all parts of super and substructure including bridge equipment.
- Fully parametric model, including intelligent reinforcement, enabling easy templating and fast and precise model changes for maximum flexibility and superior project delivery.
- Interoperability of the geometrical and analytical model for more efficient project collaboration.
DO YOU CONSTANTLY STRUGGLE WITH THE FOLLOWING CHALLENGES?
Inconsistent design data from different data sources and formats from different parties involved.
Numerous time-consuming design modifications lead to inconsistencies and poor design quality.
Due to lack of time, bridge designers can't create as many design variants as they would need to find the best solution.
Constantly re-entering the same data over and over again in your projects taking up your design time.
HOW ALLPLAN BENEFITS YOUR BUSINESS
because everything is accomplished with one software solution – the common data environment minimizes unnecessary data exchange and re-entry between different solutions.
time saving through adaption of project templates and model modifications that occur throughout the entire design phase that are made quickly, easily and reliably.
precise modeling due to modeling techniques which are tailored for bridges and workflows for different bridge types, such as precast girder bridges.
reuse of data as a result of the parametric model description - modeled bridge elements, e.g. a pier, can be saved as template and reused in subsequent projects.
Work with a single solution from parametric model creation with a high level of detail, including prestressing, to integration of the construction process and structural analysis of the bridge model, including reinforcement design and code checking.
The 3D parametric model description considers the road layout, bridge alignment and required cross-sections, making model configuration and variation fast and easy. This can be done either directly in the software or even via scripting.
Allplan Bridge automatically generates the analysis model from the geometrical model and all the calculation actions from the defined construction sequence. This greatly reduces the amount of work and susceptibility to errors.
All permanent and variable loads are combined between each other into a final envelope. This envelope is used to perform reinforcement design and code checking.
The entire 4D model adjusts in the event of any change, such as in relation to the alignment. Hence, if the geometry of an axis changes, the entire bridge model is adjusted automatically.
From initial plans through to materials, quantities, and final general arrangement and reinforcement drawings, quality and accuracy to rely on.
