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).
Structural Analysis

A global static analysis based on the Bernoulli beam theory is performed for all automatically and manually generated calculation actions defined previously in the construction sequence definition. The analysis is enhanced to accurately consider the cross-section variation. Furthermore, the nonlinear calculation of time dependent effects is performed, considering design code formulas.
Code Based Design

Design of necessary reinforcement area is based on both ULS and SLS requirements. Governing combinations of internal forces including 2nd order effects are checked against flexural, torsional and shear resistance and the requirements for stress limitations and crack width. The greater of calculated or any manually specified reinforcement amount is used for code assessments of the cross-sections.
