Newsletter June 22 - Challenges and optimization possibilities in the bridge building process

Dear SOFiSTiK users, dear interested parties,

In our upcoming webinar Hidden high tech for the bridge building process, we talk to Florian Wilhelm, Managing Director of Austria-based LGB operations GmbH (LGB), about requirements on software for the bridge building process.

LGB is an internationally operating company in the field of bridge construction. The company designs and supplies all the temporary work from travelers and formwork to scaffolding and launching systems. Florian Wilhelm talks to us about the construction and erection of structures, optimization possibilities,  influencing factors such as the history of the structure, and explains how the respective challenges are met using practical examples.

We’re looking forward to seeing you at the webinar!

Your SOFiSTiK Team

Basic Online Training Course for Bridge Design

Parametric Bridge Modelling with Grasshopper and SOFiSTiK

Parametric tools such as Grasshopper and the scripting capabilities of FEA software packages such as SOFiSTiK FEA allow engineers to automate functionalities to work faster and more creatively. Besides, it comes with a lot of potential to parametrize and optimize structures of any type.

This 4-day course teaches you the entire parametric modelling process with Grasshopper and SOFiSTiK FEA of a post-tensioned concrete bridge. You will learn the fundamentals of Grasshopper to create effective and maintainable visual scripts and how to use the SOFiSTiK Grasshopper components to build the axis-based bridge structure.
