Intelligent 3D parametric bridge models with iterative computational design

OpenBridge Modeler provides 3D parametric modeling capabilities and incorporates multi-disciplinary data into a single model to efficiently design, and produce project deliverables in a dynamic and interactive environment. You can unify roadway engineers, bridge engineers, and contractors from the earliest stages of a bridge project through design revisions and beyond. Referencing existing conditions improves accuracy, eliminates redundant data entry, and identifies constructability issues and conflicts early on.

Create intelligent models and easily manage project changes

Produce intelligent, parametric models rich in engineering content for various bridge components, including concrete compressive strength, structural steel grade, standard beam designations, and more. OpenBridge Modeler reuses data from various stakeholders to ensure relevant, up-to-date geometry all within one model. You can also manage project changes. When reference data changes, the parametric and rule-based bridge model responds automatically, so managing project changes is no longer cumbersome.

Produce deliverables including BrIM and construction data

You can deliver plans, 3D design data, earthwork, reports, visualizations, BIM deliverables, and construction data to meet project requirements. Generate a variety of reports such as deck elevations, beam-seat elevations, material quantities, cost estimates, and Input Echo report to facilitate the evaluation of multiple bridge alternatives, construction sequences, costs, and more. Easily publish project information with a variety of report options.

Enhance visualization of your bridge project

You can help your project team members, stakeholders, and clients better understand the bridge project and design environment with 3D bridge models. Quickly verify bridge geometry and provide plan, elevation, and cross-section views. Measure vertical and horizontal clearances, view time-lapse construction animation, and perform clash detection.

Mitigate risks and perform construction sequence investigation

You can perform conflict analysis of bridge structures with existing infrastructure to eliminate errors prior to construction to save time and reduce costly rework. Easily review phases in stage-wise construction to compare results, detect relevant states, and produce result envelopes for evaluation to solve problems related to creep, shrinkage, and other issues before construction. Plan with real-time traffic simulation, and virtually drive through the 3D corridor model to inspect it for any design deficiencies or physical conflicts. Integrate with Bentley Navigator for design review, construction simulation, and automated clash detection. Interoperate with RM Bridge to evaluate the feasibility of construction sequencing.
