Allplan Bridge Option - Functionality

Allplan’s new Bridge functionality is a powerful parametric 3D modeling solution to assist the bridge engineer with the design of bridges, especially concrete and composite bridges. The unique parametric model description enables quick and efficient management of the inevitable changes that occur during the design process. This saves both time and money.

The parametric model considers the alignment and the profile of a road. The cross-section of the bridge as well as its variation along the alignment is described parametrically. Even complex geometries including double curved alignment and variable cross-sections can be easily created with the help of alphanumeric entries and stored formulas, making model configuration quick and efficient. It is also possible to have several bridge geometries in one Allplan Bridge model.

Allplan Bridge Avantajları

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).

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.

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.

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.

Bridge and civil engineering

A special bridge and civil engineering module is available for the design of bridges, tunnels, supporting structures, ramps, dams and channels. A three-dimensional curve is first generated from the site plan, which can be assigned any cross-sections, taking account of the transverse slope. This produces a complex three-dimensional model, which can be used as the reliable basis for the design and of reinforced concrete.
