Software for Bridge Design

All bridge structures are unique and inevitably tied to a number of geometric and analytical challenges that arise during the bridge modelling process.
Bridge types range from simple crossings to large-scale structures, connecting whole continents. This places distinctive and highly demanding requirements on suitable bridge construction software, whether used for bridge modelling or calculation. State-of-the-art bridge engineering software needs to address manifold issues such as the building/construction history, manufacturing processes, hybrid models, loads and combinations as well as conformity to numerous internationals standards.

SOFiSTiK software solutions for bridge design reliably support structural engineers all over the world in the challenges of bridge planning. Our specialized software tools cover almost every software-aided aspect of bridge design projects, from the very first preliminary draft through to the detailed design, and from 3D BIM models up to formwork and reinforcement planning.
Our thoughtfully engineered and precise bridge design solutions are designed to let you focus on what really matters.

 

 

This is what our bridge design software offers you

BIM readiness and 3D modelling

 

  • supports open / native / big / small BIM workflows
  • open interfaces such as IFC, .dwg, SAF, Rhinoceros, .xls …
  • project support by experienced engineers

Cost-effectiveness

 

  • one tool for all – one tool only for efficient internal and interdisciplinary (building design) know-how exchange
  • maximum license capacity thanks to joint use of calculation modules
  • save time and costs thanks to seamless parametrization for efficient structural optimization and calculation

Quality of calculation

 

  • proven and widely acknowledged FEM solutions „Made in Germany“
  • precise mapping / depiction of construction/building history in accordance with manufacturing processes
  • innovative technologies allow to realise structures on the edge of technical feasibility
